We stopped here to try their world famous Curtis and chocolate drink. It was very good but the drink was thicker than expected. The waiters can be rude.

I have read some blog, 10 must try desserts in the world, and among these there was the churros from the Cafe Granja Viader in Barcelona. So, when I was visiting Barcelona, I went to this cafe bar... and it is true! Must try churros and hot chocolate!! The bar was really authentic. The atmosphere was nice. I definitely recommend...

If you have not tried chocolate before, this place is it! Home of the chocolate milk brand cacaolat, the taste of the dark chocolate and churros is absolutely fanatically delicious! Fell in love with the fantastic chocolate. Oh yummy!

Really nice place with great atmosphere- old photos on the walls and really nice and well dressed waiters. You can buy some specialities like xurros or crema catalana and enjoy it in the caffe or buy some queso blanco and hamon serrano and take it home with you. They also serve hot chocolate (great with xurros) but for me it... More

We fully appreciated the History and ambiance of this famous establishment, but the churros and chocolate were just average, and some of the other desserts (flan...) were below average.

What an amazing cafe, wonderful staff, churros/xurros are excellent. I am a better person for being there. Love it. One of the best menus for allergy suffers, all ingredients clearly shown. 🤗

We got some classics like cafe con leche, churros, and horchata. I love the concept of the old milk bars for breakfast. In the front windows they have a bunch of artifacts from the bar's history, which is the sort of thing I like to look at.

呢間簡直係西班牙版嘅澳牛,效率超快,service都真係ok。 野食方面,我地食咗churros, 蜂蜜芝士,同芝士mousse cake. Churros炸得香脆係意料中事,但點churros杯chocolate就有係不得了,佢稠身到唔係用嚟飲,係用嚟食架!仲要甜而不膩,配churros係冇得輸!至於蜂蜜芝士完全係清新輕盈,配埋啲nuts一齊食口感一流! 至於個mousse cake就見仁見智,我自己就覺得冇咩特別,但我啲fd就好ok。 總括嚟講,呢間野都真係值得一試,cp值高!

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.
