Do make a reservation as the restaurant gets pretty busy! There is a small bar and perhaps you can have a drink there while you want. Make sure to order the blackberry mojito - delicious and you will want a second one. The menu is fusion and pasta heavy. We had the volcan Arroz which is a black rice with... More

We only decided to approached the restaurant on the last day, which is a shame because we would have gone back again.

Atmosfere was cool and they could speak also... More

we absolutely loved it here. We didn't book in advance but they managed to squeeze us in, and so glad they did as it was definitely the best meal of our holiday! I recommend to all, and hopefully will return when next in Barcelona!

Wow! This place is so delicious. Just returned from Barcelona and cannot rave about this restaurant. Avoid the Rambla at all costs! Most if not all the restaurants have not as fresh food. Our tour guide said that the paella is pre made and frozen before serving. Once we heard that secret, we decided to try hidden spots in the... More

We were referred to this restaurant by it's more popular, and fully booked sister place: Viana. It was in walking distance of Las Ramblas in the Raval neighborhood. We had a big group and everyone enjoyed it. Lots of typical Catalan food.

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.
