Description: Princesa 23. Not just a name but also the location set in the heart of the 'el Born' area which refers to its history being based outside the old city to accommodate those who were providers of services but unable by law to live within the city confines.Having had an extremely varied history of Arabic, Roman, French, Moroccan, English and Catalan influences. Today it is a concoction of styles, tastes and passion. This the reason we established Princesa 23 as a reflection of the areas history.Our desire for Princesa 23 is to remain close to it's roots and consider the modern requirements of our customers too this end we believe in our cause of Drink, Food, life giving every possible for all to enjoy.The principles having reconised a need in the industry have enhanced the décor and attitude to be a safe and enjoyable experience for females which has resulted in Princesa 23.Archiving to female client base of in excess of 65% which the guys enjoy likewise.Located two minutes from the world famous Picasso Museum and the central park, also the Ramblas we can offer an experience to write home about.

“Nice bar- rude owners”
Reviewed November 4, 2012 via mobile

Very nice bar. Very rude owners - we couldn't order tapas for one person only! As we have just finshed burgers at KIOSK I didn't need another snack. But my wife did. Unless you don't expect anything but cava oraz sangria it is a place worth staying.

“Food and Drink”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

We called in here after been rather rudely dealt with in a little place off the beaten track. What a find. The place is clean and friendly. Big long couches if you want to chill or tables and chairs if you are eating, which I would recommend. The food was lovely.

“Nice bar, shame about the staff”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

We dropped into this bar/restaurant as it looked really nice from the outside, the menu was varied and the PA talked us into it. After being shown to our table we waited about 20 mins before being asked if we wanted a drink and then a further 20 before our food order was taken. The staff were more interested in talking to each other than their paying guests.
The bar was stacked up with glasses cleared from tables and whilst we were there, no one attempted to more, or wash them.
Once we'd eaten we downed our drinks and left - I couldn't wait to get out. Sorry but I wouldn't recommend.
