It was ok, but pricey

Service was actually ok, and beer was cold. The prawns were lovely and squid was ok. But there were no prices on the board and I felt it was very expensive for what wet got (47e for 2 beers, a coke, calamari, gambas and bread). Ok but wouldn't come back.

Stopped her for a quick bite to eat and loved it. Ended up staying a couple of hours drinking, eating and watching the world go by. The food was fantastic and the service was really good. If you are in the area please pay it a visit.

We went to Papitu to get something to drink (it was a warm day, and we were getting pretty desperate. The drinks we wanted was non-alcohol). Overall the waitress was arrogant and had a really bad attitude. We had to wait for a long time before she would come to our table - and when she finally came she was... More

We sat there and the waiter looked like really stressed. We ordered and he came back almost throwing our coffees on the table. Never asked if we wanted something else. Made some people leave from the table next to ours. Unpleasant experience.

We were fortunate to have found this perfect gem early in our stay and visited 4 times in all. Sardines were fantastic every time but even better was there own brewed 'doble malta' beer. It was outstanding! The only thing that beat the beer were the two exceptional waiters who dealt with everyone with equal patience and helpfulness. I have... More

This is over priced tapes restaurant and the person preparing the food was constantly weeping his face and then continued with food preparation. the food was not great ether. If you want good food at a reasonable price without any added sweat stay a way from this place.

I'd read about this little place in Timeout and would never have found it otherwise. It's in a tiny courtyard just off Lá Boqueria market, on your right as you enter the market. It's a tiny metre long bar with an outside seating area. The tapas menu is extensive and we enjoyed fresh tiger shrimps, local cheese and chorizo. Service... More

do not trust this restaurant, it is a scam. I am a lover of Spanish cuisine and this place is a disgrace. The cured ham is not, it is extremely expensive and also required a minimum consumption without directed anywhere. their waiters are the most vivid representation of the scam, mocking and derogatory.

We found this restaurant outside the market off the Ramblis and just wanted a drink. We sat down and were told you had to order food to set there. They had no menus in English so we ordered the first salad on the list, bread and sangria. What a wonderful surprise to find the salad was like a Caprese Salad... More

Very fresh ingridients, fabulous parillada de mariscos, even simple toasted bread with olive oil and cumin was perfect! Additional star for their version of brownie:-)

Staying in El Raval

Neighborhood Profile
El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
