We had a great tapas lunch. Everything was very tasty, the wine was excellent, the service fast and the owner super friendly and funny. Great! A little bit more expensive than other places around, but for a reason! :)

This was the first dinner we had in Barcelona and between the 2 of us, we've shared a total of 11 orders of tapas and a full jar of Sangria! We were so full yet we couldn't get enough of all those heavenly tapas, and we planned to go back for more just before we fly home day after tomorrow,... More

Staying in Gracia

Neighborhood Profile
Gracia literally stands out from the pack. It used to be an independent town until late into the 19th century. Though it’s just a short commute away from the center, a visit here feels like you’re in a whole different city. The bohemian vibe has drawn many international artists to this area, resulting in a wide selection of galleries, live music and artsy boutique stores. The nightlife is centered around the vibrant Gracia’s plaças, where young and old gather to enjoy a drink outside. Carrer de Verdi, its main street, offers affordable restaurants and a movie theater that screens new as well as classic films in their original language. However Gracia's greatest treasure lies just up the hill at Guell Park, where Antoni Gaudi's vibrant and revolutionary art sculptures stand atop unequaled views of Barcelona.
