Healthy ingredients, mostly from Catalonia, in a pleasant space in downtown Barcelona. Perfect for healthy breaks (with home made cakes made with locally produced, organic eggs, plus a wide choice of organic teas, organic soy milk). Come visit for lunch (at a special price, including starter, main course, drink and coffee or home-made cakes). Or come over at early evening for classic tapas (cheese from Pirineo mountains, Spanish cured ham, etc.) Or just enjoy our dinner, with tasty main courses and chef's specials, with a choice of beers and local organic wines.

Just excellent!

With so many places for a snack, meal or just a drink in delightful Barcelona, we were so lucky to find Tonka - just across the street! Very helpful waiter, delicious tapas, and wine - all extremely reasonably priced and decent sized servings. Ish I could take this place home with me!

Was here with family. Good reviews on trip advisor but can't agree. The hamburger didn't taste anything at all. alland the chickens.

Dear customer, I really don't see the point in leaving a comment that I'm afraid doesn't really help other customers but that at the end of the day DOES HURT us as a family-run, food-lover little restaurant. The only thing that I feel to add to your comment is that our hamburgers are home-made with meat proceeding from organic farming... More

First of all serviced was poor, took a long time to get a waiter to get our orders and a long time to get our food. The food was reasonable, however they say they serve brunch, which is correct but not during August as the waitress said and they "could do us a favor". They lacked in all juices except... More

Dear customer, thank you for making the effort to post your comment in English, unfortunately I'm afraid that you may have made a mistake when talking about the "brunch". We serve brunch all year round on weekends and bank holidays and there is a specific menu just for breakfast and brunch. Besides that, we additionally offer a special buffet on... More

This restaurant saved the evening. We got caught out in a heavy rain storm in Barcelona last November 2014. We were soaked through and desperate for some home comforts and friendly atmosphere. We stumbled upon this lovely little restaurant and boy were we glad we did. The lady serving us was friendly and made us feel a home. The food... More

Nice small restaurant. Food size a bit on the small size, nice presentation- and tastes really good. Slightly pricey but quality was worth it. Would definitely eat there again.

Started with a salad with blue cheese and figs. Then the sardines which were wonderful. Still hungry we shared the tempura of eggplant and artichokes. Service was slow as there is one waitress doing her best.

Our first tapas experience in Barecelona and it was excellent. The food came out staggered which was great and we left with full bellies and a smile. Took dessert away. A more varied children's menu would have been good.

I walked past this restaurant having never noticed it before and went in to eat the following day with my sister. We were very impressed. The produce is all local.

My boyfriend and I ate dinner here on our first night out in Barcelona. We shared: samosas with a fillig of brie and walnuts (our fave!), olives, croquettes, asian salad (very fresh and delish), shrimp spring rolls and then home made carrot cake for dessert... Mmmm.. Definitely go if you can! Very reasonably priced for the quality of the dishes... 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.
