This restaurant is one of the best in Barcelona. I've been quite a few times for lunch and even had their New Year's Eve dinner menu with my husband this past year. I highly recommend it! The house wine is tasty and the menu changes regularly, I've had several dishes on the menu and every one of them was superb!... More

Had high expectations based on tripadvisor reviews. Very disappointing experience. Portions were tiny compared to other restaurants we've eaten at in Barcelona. Food ideas were good, but quality just wasn't there. It cost us literally 2x as much as other restaurants for about half the quantity of food. Not sure if it was an off day or what, but most...

Not sure if you can make reservations but we went and there was an hour wait. We loved the food, service and atmosphere. What a first class food!

We hadn't booked a table, but we were lucky, as we arrived quite early and managed to get a table,before the restaurant started to fill up. A very quirky place, with all the menus on wine bottles and cutlery used as lamp shades, very unusual. We all opted for different dishes on the menu and each one was delicious and... More

We were 5 people that arrived much later than we had booked, but they didn't complain at all, waited patiently for us to order the dishes and all with a very frank smile in the face at all times. We order a little bit of everything (various salads, pasta, fish, duck, burratas, hamburger) and every dish came with a very... More

This restaurant is right in the El Born district and is a great choice for the selection and the price. Their menus and specials are printed on wine glasses! I did one of the daily specials and was NOT disappointed!

Nice small and homely restaurant where whatever you choose in their dishes you will enjoy for sure, trust me. Not too many options but you will find there marketplace cuisine with really food quality in their products. Normal and reasonable prices which makes still better this beauty restaurant in the lovely 'El Born' neighborhood.

I love Barcelona for many reasons but specially for the good food you find in liitle charming restaurants like Petra. The menu offered a variety of choices and all of them seemed equally good. The menu is a clear example of how food doesn't need to be extremely complicated and expensive to be delicious and excellent in quality. I could... More

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighborhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighborhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
