We stopped at the El Cochinillo after wandering around the market and having difficulty finding a table at one of the many tapas bars. The restaurant is situated at the side of the market so was excellent to sit and watch the droves of tourists...More

Not your white tablecloth restaurant but great seafood at a very reasonable price. Hard to find an empty seat at the tapas places in the market. So this restaurant is a good alternative. Order the grilled mixed fish and shellfish plate for one (30 euros)...More

This place is awful. The food is completly tasteless. Their "patata bravas" are a complete joke. I've eaten a few in Barcelona but this are by far the worst. They are just some fried patatos with some cream on top. Calamari are no way near...More

This is a great local and unpretentious restaurant serving amazing seafood just feet away from the market fish stalls! The seafood is so fresh and well cooked. Highly recommended!

We weren't expecting much from this restaurant which I suspected to be a typical tourist hotspot and how mistaken were we. The seafood plaster that my wife and I shared (cost €35) was one of the best we have had! Generous quantity that we struggled...More

Went twice during our stay in Barcelona. There are several outdoor restaurants in La Boqueria, side to side and this one is always full. Good variety of food on a 3 course menu, great paella, fish is freshly prepared, excellent sangria.

El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this
gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an
excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic
spots in the entire city. A sense of humble
authenticity protrudes from the many independent
record stores, second hand shops, and student bars
that seem to light up the streets day and night. The
rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day
