Good quality pasta and steaks were a nice change to the excellent tapas we had eaten on other evenings. Nice table outside and nice efficient service. The food was great, the staff friendly and the area nice and safe.

While visiting Barcelona we were walking back to our hotel and saw this restaurant. It was packed with locals rather rather than tourist. We knew it had to be good. We had to wait for an outside table, not very long, and it was well worth it. Delicious, local specialties and reasonably priced. We liked it so much we went... More

We went in for a late lunch, and we found the service very disappointing. Unmotivated and cold, long wait for an empty restaurant. Maybe due to the late hour? But once the pizza's came, our attitude changed, they were delicious. They were served on a very heavy slate. Whatever happened to plain old-fashioned dishes?

We had gone looking for a South American steak house but couldn't find it! Found this instead! Great service. Made us a table at short notice. My medium rare steak with peppercorn sauce was just right. Wife had Lasagne which was a little cool in the centre centre. Wine options. Great. Sweets Good. Coffee and brandy just fine. But coffee...

we where staying in a hotel opposite El raco and for that reason had dismissed it on previous occasions plus the fact that the outside seating always seemed low compared to other restaurants on the same strip. After 3 days of reading menus that just seemed very repetitive and being all tapas out we decided on our last night to... More

El Raco is just off Caralunya Square, centrally located close to La Rambla in Barcelona. The food is fresh, presentation is fantastic and the taste is worth coming back! We had the smoked pizza and olive bread. I can only wish I could get this in Canada!

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Eixample
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 exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
