Great food and atmosphere

We went for the tasting menu for 25 EUR which includes 2 drinks, water, 7 tapas and dessert. Everything was delicious and the service was great!

I had a great meal here. The smoked watermelon gazpacho and beet gnocchi in particular were amazing! The only downfall was that I came alone and couldn't get the tasting menu. I'd recommend creating an individual tasting menu... even if it costs an extra 5-10 euro.

I ate here a dinner with my two meat eating brothers. We choosed a dinner packet for 25€ each and really got value for our money. Because we all were really hungry in the beginning I asked if we are going to be satisfied after the dinner and the waitress promised that it wont happen. Food was good, wine delicious... More

My girlfriend and I were obsessed with this restaurant and everything about it was great. The chef was sooo cool and you could see him cooking the kitchen and he kept coming over and talking to us. The food was amazing and plentiful. We both dont care about meat and fish so this was perfect for us. I recommend the... More

We really enjoyed our meal here. We came in the basis of reviews on here and we were not disappointed. We had the 7 course tasting menu - the first in a vegetarian restaurant - and we were really impressed. Only 25 euros inc wine and water. Only criticism is that the restaurant is a bit cramped, especially at the... More

This tiny restaurant offers the most amazing vegetarian food and the chef and waiters are friendly and clearly love their food and take an interest in telling you what each dish is. My friend and I both had the taster menu - which just goes on and on with the most delicious courses, plus two glasses of your preferred wine.... More

This place is absolutely beautiful and unique. The menu is interesting and the food tastes excellent! My partner (meat-eater) and I went back several times during our stay, even though we usually like to try different places every night. That's how good this place is.

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.
