Bar Upiaywasi is a cool little bar on carrer de l'allada-vermell which is actually more a square than a street. It is a perfect place to relax in the evening and enjoy cocktails and snacks. Very friendly service. We love their coco mojito which comes with grated coconut and has wonderful flavor. Perfect with some nachos or hummus.

The focaccia tomato mozzarella was just cheap pizza, not thoroughly baked, with lots of cheese and a bit tomato sauce. Drinks came fast, but cheap pizza needed 30(!) Minutes. Just don't go - tourist trap. Save money and time, don't go :(

I had the loveliest dinner here with 4 friends. I had a chicken starter which was like a pie, and tuna nicoise salad. Prices were very fair and the service was very friendly!!! Thanks for a lovely dinner!

The place is nice and well located . However just good for a drink . The only tapas we tried (bravas) was very bad . Steam potatoes with salsa bravas ....

Not bad not good. A normal place to sit down and enjoy in a nice little square. The food is enjoyable but not really exotic. The prices fair.

DO NOT EAT HERE! I REPEAT! DO! NOT! EAT! HERE! I AM ABSOLUTELY SERIOUS ABOUT IT! THIS IS NOT A JOKE! The place seemed to be nice, however it was HORRIBLE. At first I didn't notice, but then I saw that they don't have stoves or ovens to cook, IT IS JUST MICROWAVE HEATED FOOD. Like food from DAYS ago!... More

Wondering around with some friends we found this bar/restaurant with a great location. What we didn't know was how terrible the food was and how expensive too. I ordered one of the most expensive yet disgusting burritos I have ever eaten. It was just minced meat with cheap tomato sauce in a wrap.

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.
