A gourmand's paradise for traditional cuisine. Recommended by locals and worth the visit (but not if on a budget!).

Ate two out of three nights ,husband loved the suckling pig and the tenderloin of steak the second meal.I stuck with cheese plate and amazing tiramisu as the main course not really veggie friendly.Excellent service and the most beautiful room.

Fonda España was our last dinner in Barcelona which we had chosen based on good reviews. So we had big expectations. I was very satisfied with my first and main courses: tuna tartar and pigeon. Tuna was nicely seasoned and nicely put on the plate....More

Amazing restaurant located at a beautiful hotel. Extremely friendly staff, ready to assist on every request. The degustation menu is recommended to those who have time to spend. Every dish different from the other, a lot of creativity, beautiful to the eye and tasty.

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
