If you are in the Gothic/Born area of Barcelona and need that sweet cake and chocolate fix then Bubo is the place. They have a great selection,in fact they all look so good its hard to know which one to choose.

You genuinely can't beat this place for desserts. Second late night visit and just as good as the first. Designer plates but sensible pricing. Outside restaurant is great for tapas. Taster menu was delicious and positioning is a real sun trap. Try it.

Fun and creative desserts that are delicious. The prices are high but if you're looking to splurge try some macaroons or a sliver of some decadent pastry. The coffee is good too.

Food is pricy for Spain. Hamburger is $9 no sides. Food is tasty though and location is nice on patio area in front of church. IF looking for a meal in this area and don't mind paying a bit more you should enjoy it.

Although right in the middle of tourist central, the quality of the tapas was higher than the norm, and it made for a good lunch. Patatas bravas, pork skewers and squid were highlights.

I stopped here around 6 for a glass of cava, olives, and patatas bravas. There is no point in trying not to be touristy at this spot - it is in a very touristy area. But you can still sit and do some people watching....More

Wow, with so many great places around, why on earth did we visit this place. The food poor, un-tasty and pre-prepared. The service okay-ish. The location in the mainstream of tourists. Would never go back.

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
