Cheap good quality drink especially the yummy three euro pints of sangria. The atmosphere was cool with lots of big groups and a good mix of locals and tourists, mainly 20-25 year old back packer types. Bar staff were friendly and spoke decent english and didn't seem to mind our groups lack of spainish unlike in other bars. The building... More

It's a rustic bar/pub that also serves tapas. Beer is very good an cheap. The atmosphere is really good. We've been in Barcelona 1 week and came here multiple times. A must stop.

First of all, if you're going with a group of friends, it's a no brainer to get the large 5 liter beer or sangria stand. It's a great value when you split it between people. This place is filled with locals and a nice break from the touristy locations close to Ramblas. We watched a world cup game here, which... More

Loved the atmosphere in this medieval-style, underground bar in the Gothic area of Barcelona. Went for a few drinks on a stag do with 13 guys and the only 'trouble' we had getting in was the doorman taking us to one side and saying "you will enter and then you will exit drunk...please be quiet for the residents nearby, now...

I have gone many times to Ovella Negra and have a great time, but I think this should be taken into consideration, I have brought many friends and overall over 3 out of ten have gotten a rash on the legs the next day after going there, we thought it was something else they have eaten but all the friends...

The entrance is quite deceiving, however the small corridor opens into a rustic bar. We enjoyed reasonably priced beer, free popcorn to accompany them whilst sitting at wooden tables and enjoying the friendly atmosphere.

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
