During the Mobile World Congress (MWC) events (in February annually) in Barcelona we have found out that L' Ovella Negra is the best place to escape the professional fuzz. No matter, which other restaurant or bar you visit during the event, you will find hoards of MWC visitors talking the same stuff they are talking during the day. But, in... More

A pint of beers or sangria for around €3, free popcorn with a drink, and free popcorn refills. free wifi. Definitely popular with toursits and students alike. The pitcher of Sangria or Beer is much loved. Also saw a few giant tanks of beer, with individual taps for self-service. Great place, good ambience.

This is definitely a place to go if you want an unpretentious, welcoming bar that has a great atmosphere and offers good value. Other reviewers have commented that it doesn't welcome hen/stag parties or bad behaviour - hallelujah! Perhaps that's why people of all ages are willing to queue for a table to enjoy a civilised night of socialising amid... More

Ovella negra or the black sheep. When I lived in Barcelona we often went there for sangria or beer. If you are a group you can share a meter of sangria or beer. You can play billiard and football table game. Great place to have fun. The place is very popular among young people

A students/back packer bar “institution” - excellent for some sangria and beer just a few steps from plaza Catalonia/Rambla. It’s not a fancy place, you can feel the Sangria in the walls but perfect for a week day if no plans and no clue what to do. Order a pitcher of Sangria start the night.
