We adored this place. It is not a tourist restaurant (phew!) but was jammed with locals. The atmosphere is great, old-time, and the food was very good. It was one of our favorite dining experiences in Barcelona - especially this part of town where it...More

My family visited Barcelona over the holidays and we all agreed that the dinner at Bar Canete was our best from the meatballs, the artichoke with jamon and dessert. A great spot!

We got there without a reservation (huge mistake), but the maitre d’ said it would be 20-25 minutes, so we waited. It actually took more than an hour, so we were annoyed at being misled. After that, the restaurant set itself very high expectations. Some...More

I would strongly recommend The Aged Beef Steak with Foie for one of your main courses. It's 24€ but worth it. Don't forget to make a reservation.
