We visited here last year and couldn't wait to rerun. It's a traditional restaurant that has a great three course menu with a drink for €13.50.

The restaurant isn't open at night... More

Accidentally found that restourant. It's not s big of luxury place, but very authentic. The menu was written by hand and in Spanish, I didn't understand anything and just asked to bring me something tasty. They brought for me very fast : amazing white fish, grilled vegetables garlic bread and cold beer. Clean place, really tasty food, very friendly stuff... More

Found this place through TripAdvisor when our originally researched choice couldn't accommodate the size of our group. Incredible food, which was amazingly priced and totally a local Catalan haunt (we were the only primary English speakers there). The servers were great fun and we both tried out our English and Spanish on each other. The "menu del día" choices, quality... More

We know Barcelona well and were wandering vaguely around the back streets of the Gothic Quarter when we came across this little gem.
