Located in one of the quietest corners of the Barrio de Sant Pere, between a New York air and French character, it is Elsa y Fred. With an offer based on a great variety of tapas and dishes made with products of good quality selected by Ramon Miracle, this gastrobar has managed to stand out among the local cuisine

Although a Tapas restaurant is was different to some of the more cramped Tapas bars in the city. There were spacious tables inside and outside and you were able to book a table in advance. The menu has a good variation of dishes from meat...to fish and vegetarian. The portion sizes were big and more refined than other places that we visited, however this is reflected in the price. The one thing that was a slight let down was the service as some of our dishes were delivered 20 minutes or so after most of the others and I think the restaurant simply forgot about these. Other than that a great restaurant at the southern end of the Gothic QuarterMore

Came early to this restaurant to have dinner. The restaurant was not even half full and they refused me and said that I should go to a partner restaurant. Reason they gave me is that I was alone! Very bizarre considering a more than half...empty restaurant and the fact that they were accepting other people with 2 or more without reservation. They seem to care only about money (maybe they thought they could have used the table for 2 people), although they could have easily ran two shifts if they really wanted to. Very stupid. Will avoid this restaurant with such horrible service!More

We come here every morning for our coffee and breakfast. Since our hotel is next to it. The waitresses are nice. The price for breakfast is very nice. We love the scrambled eggs and sandwiches. And if you like matcha. the matcha orange is great....This place makes our stay in Barcelona wonderful.More

This restaurant has the name to be famous so it's always busy. Despite that we had a lovely late tapas lunch. Being just in front of our hotel, we had the opportunity to find a free table in 5 mins. We ordered several tapas which...all came quickly and tasted very good. The Iberico Jamon is a must-do. Period. As an extra service late in the evening I was allowed to take my gin-tonic to the hotel across the street (their bar was closed) and bring back the glass next day. Great service!More

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
