The Box is a great find in the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona. The food was delicious and so reasonably priced. Best hot dog ever! The bartender was very friendly as well. I would definitely go here again if I'm ever back in Barcelona.

Fun and unique place! We had a quesadilla and a burrito accompanied by their specialty cocktails with infused rums. Everything was very tasty and didn’t hurt the wallet much.
