My title says it all. We love the food and don't mind waiting but it's best to come after 2 PM when there are less people waiting for the limited bar spaces. The market closed at 3:30 so don't come here for dinner.

We are very sorry for the wait. This week we were a waiter less for reasons of health and that's why the delay. Thank you for your opinion and I hope you come back soon.

Fun place in a corner of a "Farmer's Market" type of building. Excellent mixed seafood platter pile high with a variety of shellfish, grilled fish, squid, etc. Not particularly cheap, but not a bad value. Very crowded, so probably need to wait a bit for...More

Located in the Mercado de Santa Catarina, this is an easy place to sit and get some quick snacks. Wandering in the market will make anybody hungry. Had papas bravas, Spanish omelette and calimari fritas with a couple beers was under €20.

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
