Terrific bravas and service

Visited on a wet summer day and we're greeted with warm smiles and great service. Food was also very good... Especially the bravas and the mini burger.

Perfect patatas bravas, crunchy on the outside, munchy on the in, served hot and not oily, best I've ever had. Other tapas pretty good too, bacalao most memorable. Still it seemed a bit pricey for the amount of food we had on the table.

We were looking for a little tapas place. We came accross that place because of the cute terrace. Unfortunately, it was possible to eat outside but we decide to get in anyways and it was really good surprise. The food was really good and the ambiance also. Service was friendly and super quick. Worth going!!

4 courses of delicious food I highly recommend the confit cod with baby eels and artichokes with sausages. The mussels and steak tartare were also delicious. The service was great and friendly, except it did take a while to get the bill. The only down side was we ordered too many heavy dishes for what we are used to. 3... More

Eat where the locals eat. This place clearly favours its regular local clientele and won't try too hard to find a table if you are a tourist. However it's worth the wait, with a quaint authentic setting and good tapas food.

I loved the atmosphere of this place. I stopped in to get a late lunch here after visiting the Picasso Museum. They were very nice even though it was a weird time and I was by myself and don't speak Spanish, which I totally appreciated. The food was delicious. I got meatballs and rigatoni (two separate dishes) and a glass... More

We were greeted by a very friendly, honest and cheerful waitress, which really set the spirit right from the beginning. We asked her to compose a menu for our party, and the food was plenty and delicious! It's hard to pick any favourites, but we were particularly impressed by the honey glassed eggplant and the baked green peppers. The meatballs... More

Food was quite nice, had a few tapas dishes to start and planned on having a few more but changed our mind when the bald waiter pretty rude to us, rushing us through ordering and snapping when asked a question about the drinks. It's a shame because the dishes we had were really tasty and reasonably priced. The guy lets... More

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighborhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighborhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
