Nice upper town Japanese Restaurant at the pedestrian walkway between Paseo de Gracia and Rambla de Catalunya. I tried Gyosas which were very good, some decent Sushi (nothing special) and Soba Noodles (little too salty, but Ok). The place has nice open kitchen and social...More

We sat at the bar and had an enjoyable experience sharing the many delicious dishes on the menu. One of our favorites was the fried rice -- but everything was great! Olga, our server and bartender, was terrific and made sure we were well taken...More

5 minutes on the answering machine waiting for them to make up on their promise to attend to me in a few minutes? On the web no chance to book a table? Get your act together! Otherwise, thank you but no thank you!

Everytime I visit BCN I visit El Japones. Fresh and still trendy after all these years. It is young and the volume is high. Perfect place before the big night out.

Just like a japanese restaurant should be, nice and fresh. Even though it was a little more expensive than other restaurants in the city, it's not that expensive compared to other countries. Nice and fresh and a friendly atmosphere.

While this restaurant has a few pluses like a nice, contemporary design and a lively atmosphere, it doesn't live up to its hype. The bottom line is that the food...asian tapas and sushi...is quite average and overpriced. Despite this, the restaurant because of its hype,...More

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
