Had to eat where the locals do, as well as the chefs. Great fun, absolutely delicious omelette and mushrooms cooked in sherry on fried eggs. Very quick service in fantastic atmosphere of buzzing market. Coffee good too. Never eat a hotel breakfast when this is an alternative

Everything was very, very good. Excellent dishes. Any visitor must try the chipirones (baby squid) with eggs. It sounds odd, but it was over the top. Patatas bravas are another hit as well as the gambas. Tortilla Espanolas were fabulous. Freshest seafood, especially the mussels. Great experience. Small open 3 sided bar essentially. Sitting at the counter, the chef's at... More

Food is allright, good ideas and freshly prepared. But if you watch a person wipe off their sweat, work with money and then prepare your food with same hands, no gloves, all of that in front of you... Not so good. Beer, water, el quim salad and baby squid for 34euros

We stumbled into two rare seats after another couple finally vacated. We were served quickly, and enjoyed such a terrific meal, with great service. Now, what made it extra fun was that the entire floor space in about the size of a good sized closet. There were five people working, cooking, bringing up the supplies from some mysterious underground layer,... More

For those who love a taste of authenticity, l Bouqueria has plenty to offer. The sounds and sights, the lively rattle, the aroma, it all blends perfectly and takes you far away from the La Rambla crowds. Having said that, you will certainly fall in love with El Quim - the open tapas bar, where fresh food is cooked in... More

This tapas bar is situated in an old covered market that's a tourist Mecca in Barcelona. It's just off the mad crush of people that is the Ramblas. It's tucked in the middle of the market, which is always bursting at the seams with tourists, at least during the summer months. But what might sound like a living hell, it's... More

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.
