“Great market, close to Cathedral Square, excellent family-style restaurant adjoins”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

The market itself is great fun, many vendors and stalls. Then go next door to the restaurant, in a cavernous space with service of a huge tapas menu and good wine selection, at family-style tables. Reasonably priced for the quality.

“Well worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

Came across the market whilst wandering around the Gothic District. Spotlessly clean and all the sumptuous food is beautifully presented. Wish we could experience this food shopping experience back home!

“Great local market”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

This is a great market, less hectic and touristy than the big market on Ramblas. Worth making the journey, as the area around - El Born - is full of interesting bars.

“All you can eat restaurant across street from north entrance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

There is a cafeteria-style restaurant across the street from the north entrance that has great salads, meats, drinks, paella's, pizza, etc. Great place for the budget-minded or families with fussy eaters, there are so many choices. Flat price for everything, and one can go back to the serving stations as much as you like. I drank so much beer it should be illegal. Wine too. This place is not listed on Trip Advisor as a restaurant.
