My wife and I were in Barcelona and we thought we would try a place recommended by our guide book, so we picked Els Ocellete,and it turned out to be a great find. We arrived at about 8:30 PM and were able to get a table because the Spanish often start dinner after 9:00 or later. We chose the 30... More

We ordered 2 types of paella, and bruschetta with ham x 2 to start, for mains we ordered 2 x Carpaccio, 1 x Cod and 1 x Steak. The paella was going to take 20 mins so they suggested we had our Carpaccio for our starter. The carpaccio was amazing, I could easily have eaten more. The problem started when... More

Best mussels I've ever tasted. 4 starters & main course with btl of wine for 2 only 30-35 euros each. Great food & service. Window seat added voyeuristic quality. No music though

Fabulous family run restaurant with amazing home cooked food! Everything is seasonal so the menu frequently changes, the steamed cockles are out of this world, the mussels are to die for and the baby squid are the best! Make sure you try the romesco sauce!

Good food, excellent service and a great price! I would recommend this to couples or groups. This was a great chance fine at 2230. We were bumbling around and hadn't booked on a Saturday night, turned away from three places and found this restaurant. We were shown the English translation of the menu and our waitress was amazing. We took... More

Barcelona has many good quality restaurants; Els Ocellets is one of them. After a concert we have seen this place on our way home and decided to have a late dinner here. It was a very good decision. All the dishes we ordered were outstanding. Mixed seafood plate and black paella were all very tasty. The ambient of the restaurant... More

Went here with my girlfriend for a lunch because the restaurant we originally planned to go was closed. Els Ocellets appeared to be a classy place where locals had lunch and after 10 minutes of our arrival the place was full. We had mussels for starters and delicious paella for main dish. Prices were a little over of my budget... More

The food was nice here but our main courses were very small and outrageously overpriced for what they were, I also asked for a medium rare steak and the top half was medium rare and the bottom half was almost well done.The pedro ximenez sauce was lovely though, very rich. The mussels were very good too. The English menu has... More

I loved the Paella in this restaurant. We were surprised to see that almost all tables were full (something very unusual on thursday noon in a non-touristic restaurant in Barcelona). We really enjoyed the great food & the efficient service. We will surely be back again!

Staying in El Raval

Neighborhood Profile
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 forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
