La comida digna de un día de navidad en mayúsculas. So good food for a Chrismas day Como la cocina se ve desde el pasillo, se podia ver como trabajaba el equipo de cocina. Desde mi punto de vista volcados en su hacer y con una limpieza total. Because you can see a part of the kitchen from the corridor,... More

We've only ever been here for lunch, but each time the food's been great. Tasty and creative, plus good bread and olive oil, and nice house wine. Recommended.

We went to this place for a late dinner. Atmosphere and interior design is great. Menu is limited, but with enough choice. Staff is very friendly but a bit chaotically organised. But that's ok. The level of English is bad, hard to explain if you want a dish with some small change (like different vegetables e.g.). The wine we ordered... More

Served relatively good food and you can sit outdoors. A good selection of Spanish wines, for example Priorat and Albariño

We live a few blocks away and really enjoy going to Llamber for drinks and appetizers. We realized we had never been to Kafka which is just next to Llamber and gave it a try. Verdict: excellent food and nice service and atmosphere. The sashimi tuna and salmon were very fresh and well seasoned as was the grilled tuna. The... More

Came here with 3 British and one Spanish friend. Great fun decor with beautiful lamps above the bar. Nice food particularly enjoyed the oysters which seemed good and fresh.

nice food, staff and exellent terrace in the sun. They have a good lunch menu. It is not so easy to find a quiet restaurant in the sun in Barcelona so this is a good place to go to.

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

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.
