This was our first stop straight from the cruise for fresh delicious sangria! The food is excellent too. I had the breakfast platter and hubby had tapas. Can't go wrong at this place

We went to the small dessert restaurant next to the main restaurant. I think it's called El Bon Sucre, but it's part of the same establishment. We went to have dessert for dinner and ordered 4 tarts and cafe con leche. All of the tarts were delicious and the coffee was great too. God I miss Spanish coffee.

We could have sat at this restaurant all afternoon and eaten and watched the tourists go by. Superb tapas, beautiful wine and fun atmosphere. If your lucky you'll get to see a wedding car pull up with a gorgeous bride go into the church opposite for her big day.

One of the best meals my friends and I have ever had. Every single thing we selected from the tapas was incredible. We ended up being those annoying people at the dinner table that just don't stop talking about the food (we couldn't help ourselves). I'm not much of a sweet person but we saved room for dessert and that... More

The tapas and dessert shops are right next to each other. The desserts are pretty good. Had the "world's best chocolate cake, 2005" and the vanilla hazelnut raspberry cake. Both are pretty good.

Nothing special about this place. Expensive compared to a lot of better places. Crazy confused service that often just left us hanging. The food wasn't bad but definitely not worth the price. It seemed like a tourist trap. The best part was sitting outside and the beautiful view of the church. But the service really ruined it.

they have one of the nieces looking deserters ever and super tasty as well. Highly recommend it, although the service could be improved, as staff looks and behave as they are bored and annoyed with your presence.

Bubo is one of the best patisserie ive ever eaten with. The place is lovely and vibrant and offers one the best delicacies a chocolate or a sweet lover can resist. Absoultely gorgeous and beautifully delicately garnished desserts that let you not leave the place not eating.

Excellent selection of desserts. Very crafty. Macaroons are amazing! We had these after having lunch at their bar that is around the corner, also named Bubo. Well priced, €10 for 8 macaroons.

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.
