Very disappointed with the breakfast. We went at around 9am and saw that a few people were eating and thought it looked good to try. We ordered coffees, orange juice, a tortilla and ham sandwich and a ham and cheese toastie. The coffees were fine, but the juice was bottled (which is a little odd considering we were in the...

It wasn't that special but it was still very good and the location (inside the market) made it an interesting experience. We had a plate of grilled shellfish and some wine . During lunch time it is very crowded so you may have to wait a while to be seated,as alot of tourists go there.

This quick eat is a must. Located on the skirt of the market, look for red place-mat settings and grab your bar stool seat. We ordered the 30e sampler which obviously isn't enough for 4 but it includes: 2 prawns, 1 crayfish, 2 sardines, baby octopus, scallops (really good), cuttlefish, mussels and clams - ALL GRILLED TO PERFECTION with a...

Busy bar around the open 'market stall' restaurant! We waited for stools and the server was excellent in noticing us and giving us menus and billing people who had finished. We ordered the mixed seafood platter with half a lobster and the tripe and the greek salad and two glasses of cava. It came to E63 which was very fair... More

I was very disappointed, as it used to be a good experience coming to eat at La Boqueria. Now it seems like everyone just wants to get as much profit as possible giving the least possible. It was very greasy - specially vegetables (mixed plate for 9euros), churasco (11€) - greasy and fat, and the winner - shrimps with garlic... More

Hidden treasure in the middle of a Barcelona food market. One of the top places to have lunch - amazing fresh food cooked in front of you, pleasant waiters, reasonable pricing - key to enjoyable leisure for Barcelona visitors!

We enjoyed our lunch here and the waiter looked after us well. It was fun to sit at the counter and watch the busy chefs preparing lunches. We had a seafood platter which gave us the opportunity to try razor clams which were a bit over cooked and gritty. Overall a good experience eating in the amazing market. A little... More

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.
