We were really looking forward to eating in the restaurant, as we had already ate at the Tapas Bar adjoining the restaurant, which was very good. We were seated and although it was not busy we had to wait a while to be served. We kept our order simple, I ordered the cannelloni and my partner ordered the moussaka, not... More

Wonderful place for tapas or a full meal after 7pm. This was the first restaurant I visited upon arrival in Barcelona and what a treat! I started with Tapas at the bar- grilled calamari- delicious and sangria and then my daughter joined me for a full meal. The restaurant was very busy on a Thursday night, so glad we were... More

The newly built Santa Catharina market is a nice place to visit. Just a few minutes from the cathedral. The restaurant and tapasbar Cuines Santa Caterina has a good selection of tapas in a modern Spanish environment.

I heard many good thongs about this restaurant that is attached to the fresh food market. We arrived at 7:30, early for Spanish dinner, and it was not busy, yet! The menu is quite extensive offering meals from a world of menus, but our server advised that a number of items were not availble. This was not an issue as... More

We found this restaurant by chance: go into the excellent Mercat (market) de Santa Catarina near Barcelona Cathedral in the old town, turn right as soon as you enter and there is a delightful,modern, inexpensive yet smart restaurant offering veggie, fish, meat and east-west fusion food. Airy, fun and good local buzz. Opens for lunch at 1.00: great place to... More

I didn't visit each restaurant in Barcelona of course, but this was by far the best restaurant we dined at during our stay in this city. The restaurant itself presents quite an interesting and original concept. Food is mouth watering. Service is very good. Fairly priced. Very vast choice of dishes. Had I discovered this place earlier we would have... More

A friend from Barcelona recommended this restaurant as the best in city, and it is absolutely true. The fish is extremely fresh and cooked at perfection. we tried the Mediterranean dishes and everything was amazing. Forget about the international dishes, there is no sense to taste sushi or noodles then the kitchen just crying out Spanish cuisine at its perfection.... More

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighborhood Profile
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 ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
