Very nice place to grab late dinner and a drink or two. Sometimes it's hard to get a seat but they want to help you asap. Good tapas at the restaurant far in, to the right. Very good staff and environment is beautiful.

The place is huge, there is a lot of restaurants inside like if it is a "mercado" but fancy. We tried some tapas in the central bar, prices are ok. Not really cheap but the place deserves it. Restrooms are impressive.

An absolutely stunning place, so authentic in both food and atmosphere. The tapas were mainly seafood but had good options without fish also. Service was great fun, sometimes slow to bring out particular dishes you are waiting on. A bit pricy but definitely worth it...More

Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you
enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally
translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes
recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant
atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district,
Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end
international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the
glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best
