Being Americans, we were ready to eat much earlier than Barcelonians...this restaurant accommodated us at 8 PM, and presented a wide range of options that accommodated gluten free, low fat, and low roughage diets. Great selection of wines.

We stayed in this restaurant for lunch; they had a interesting menu, maybe with not so much dishes to choose but very well described and good price. Everything that we eat was excellent and very well presented. The staff are very friendly. The only think that they have to improve is the timing between the dishes because it was a... More

Stayed in the area and this was a perfect spot for drinks and relaxation. The windows open up to make it a great spot to watch folks and enjoy the city.

In a town that where tapas & paella get old quickly, we were craving a plated lunch after walking through Born. Perfect atmosphere, clean, lovely decor, smiley staff & delicious pasta. We split the GINORMOUS pear/arugula salad with walnuts. I had a HUGE bowl of 'soup of the day' (cauliflower, potato & parm) which we shared also. My date had... More

We just stopped for an early drink and had a lovely bottle of their house wine (vino tinto), that was served by a charming waitress with a small plate of delicious olives. We had other dinner plans for the evening but will try to return sometime soon for their tempting dinner offerings.

We both ordered pasta. Both good flavored but mine was a bit too salty.. For 13.50 euro per dish, I expected a slightly larger portion or at least bread service. Ordered the chocolate fondant with ice cream dessert which was very tasty butt pricey. The service was attentive and polite and atmosphere was nice. C

Stumbled across this Italian restaurant accidentally for a quick lunch a while back and was pleasantly surprised. I have gone there on a few occasions since then. They have a great selection of Italian wines and authentic food, with some tapas mixed in for good measure. Nice to see dishes like the beetroot ravioli typical to Italy's northern regions, that...

Stumbled across this place and were totally hungry... can't complain about service or interior, but my dish just wasn't good... Had spaghetti with sea fruits (con marisco fresco). The cook doesn't know "al dente" and uses too much salt, the quid was a bit too tough and all but one Venus clams empty. The portion was definitely too small for... More

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.
