We didn't make a reservation here but only had to wait 20 minutes or so. Well worth waiting. Sat at the bar and got to witness the "acton." High energy and lots of moving parts. Very nice waiter. My favorite was the large meatball, which...More

I ate at Paco Meralgo with my sons (age 11 and 14). The service was excellent and the food divine. The atmosphere is great and well worth the wait at this buzzing restaurant. We recommend the rabbit and the pan con tomat!

Best to book in advance. Can get very busy because it is excellent. Lively atmosphere. Food is delicious - meat, fish or vegetable. Highly recommended.

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

Like other reviewers, we didn't see upstairs, however it cannot have the atmosphere of downstairs, where the kitchen is and all the staff are busy working, talking etc. It doesn't sound like the experience you're looking... More
