Just off La Rambla this is a great place to hang out and soak up the atmosphere. A sun trap during the day and sheltered from the breeze in the evening. Plenty of places to eat and drink, although it becomes very busy after 7pm so make sure you don't eat too late. We can recommend the restaurant 'Quinze Nits'. You may have to wait for a table and the service does sometimes seem a little slow - but hey you're on holiday so what's the rush! The food was excellent and quite cheap compared to some of the other places around.

You must stop ere and enjoy the culture and fun people. Enjoy a bite to eat. All the food is good and they speak a little English. We stayed a while

This is what the typical tourist imagines a Spanish / Catlaina Placa should look like. High stone walls surrounding a multitude of outdoor cafes with palm trees, statues and fountains. A place to meet, relax, eat and drink. Not sure if it is authentic or more staged for the tourist from the cruise ships and just off the la ramblas, but it was certainly a welcome break from our wanderings.

Next to the busy Ramblas. It's a hiding spot when the streets are full of people. You can relax on one of the terraces with a good glass of wine or tapa's. There are no cars passing as it is in a pedestrian zone. Literally you can say it's an oase in a busy city! A must visit is my opinion.

Really liked the vibe here - we stopped for a coffee during the day - the next day we came back for pre-dinner drinks and the next we dined at one of the restaurants.
