Maybe not the beautiful restaurant but definitely the best Pulpo and Sangria in this Area of Barcelona. We were there at three times at our weekend trip. Absolutely fresh and delicious food.

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
