Having read the reviews here we tried to find out he restaurant pictured (and possibly reviewed???), however the picture and address is not the restaurant La Llavor dels Origen, the picture is the restaurant Perineu en Boca, so I wonder are the positive reviews too? The web link attached to this review takes you to the developing pages of Perineu... More

Our local friends were celebrating an anniversary and we were invited to join them for lunch. It is a Catalan restaurant offering organic, local and slow food with meat, fish and other vegetarian options. Loved the atmosphere of this place –cozy and nicely decorated. The wood of the interior gives a warm touch. Quality food and friendly staff. The price... More

Very friendly place with terrific menu. The food is very good. The location is great. After and before the dinner you can take some tapas and drinks. The only point is that you need to book before fee chances you can have a table without reservation.

We took the chance on this restaurant and it surprised us nicely. It looks like a tourist trap, but it is certainly not. For 20 euros each, you get a delicious tapas menu. The service was equally pleasant.

Usually I am weary of 'politically correct' organic restaurants but this one is an exception! Very good food, an imaginative menu, very good service and great ambience

We were here for lunch and it was absolutely delicious. We had a menu which was worth for money. Everything was organic, which is not necessary for me, but the price was not higher compared to a "non-organic" restaurant. The beef and vegetables were fresh and in my opinion of very good quality. I will come back if I return... More

Great little restaurant with a very interesting menu (home cooked meals witg a twist, organic farm products), seasonal menu, great sweets and a simple but very cool interior. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Every time we visited the place was packed with locals and I guess they know where to go. Charming and pleasant place with lots of character.... More

Really felt like I was getting a taste of Catalonia when I was here - wild boar, cheese-stuffed onion, chocolate rabbit, Spanish rose - we ordered a wide selection in a group of 4 and we were not disappointed. Strongly recommend to anyone visiting Barcelona who wants to feel like they're in Michelin restaurant without the price-tag. The perfect holiday... More

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.
