You can't pay a separate account within a group, an obnoxious trend in Barcelona's restaurants. When questioned about this uncomfortable practice, the manager told me that the client is not right, at least not in his restaurant were he does as he pleases and applies whatever policy wether you, the client, likes it or not. I'm not going back of... More

Food is delicious and great variety of drinks and juices. Staff is a bit unfriendly and you can sit outside only if you're eating. But overall I would recommend it because of cute place and food. We had buddhabowls.

Food is not really good and mostly you will face a problem once you ask for bill, if you go there with friends you cannot decide to pay separately, they will ask you to pay all with one card or cash, that's really uncomfortable. The service is not nice also.

Such a cute/cosy cafe yet had a quirky vibe. The food was amazing, me and my boyfriend both had the 'Grilled cheese waffle sandwich and vanilla marshmallow lattes' both were incredibly tasty, filling and 100% worth it! We enjoyed our visit that much we returned later that night for a cocktail which as we expected were extremely nice and cheaper... More

The place is super nice and the service as well, very efficient. As for the food, everything we ordered was delicious. Especially the banana chocolate pancakes. You should definitely book ahead before coming, we were lucky to get a table because it's clearly a popular place to eat.

The amazing thing about Barcelona is you can get a three course meal for only about 14 EURO. Sometimes less. Its great to ask the locals about this as well as most restaurants will do this.

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.
