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 their first 5 years of running in, Elsa y Fred has captured the attention of all who pass through this area and seduce with the delights of their dishes. With an offer based on a great variety of tapas and dishes made with products of good quality selected by Chef Ramon Miracle Segura, this gastrobar has managed to stand out among the local cuisine.

Noisey and not a lot of space to eat as there are so many people packed in, but what a nice place to eat. Service was excellent, food was great, prices were ok. We were luckly to get in without a booking.

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
