This was excellent. Beware - the trip advisor map is not accurate - copy the address into Google maps to find it. I had a superb meal with a bottle of wine for only €35. It is probably the best value I've ever had, and certainly one of the best meals. The pizza was excellent and the service excellent too. Cannot recommend highly enough. I can only imagine the negative reviews come from the place that is where the trip advisor map purports this place to be!

We were walking along the carrer de provenca on our second day in Barcelona, and saw this little place with an entryway that was about 5 feet high. After perusing the menu, we decided to give it a try for dinner (we were the first people there since it was only 7 pm, an ungodly early hour for a Spanish dinner). What we found was a very attractive little restaurant about 4 feet beneath street level with a very welcoming Italian/Catalan atmosphere.
The waitress made her first great move by suggesting a pitcher of sangria. I have had many sangrias before, but the way she made it with a variety of fruits, and who knows what the actual wine was; but the taste was just out of this world. And she was very serious about the sangria---she allowed us a bit of a taste at first, but told us not to drink any more for at least 15 minutes so that the flavor could pervade the whole pitcher.
On to the food. 1 order for pizza, 2 for pastas, one chicken marsala. 3 of us had salads to start, fresh ingredients, good tasting, and the portions were very generous. All the entrees were equally good, with my marsala equalling just about any I have ever had before. The pizza was a thin crispy pizza that my adult son devoured with pleasure. Both pasta dishes were praised by wife and adult daughter.
We meant to come back here before leaving Barcelona, but we didn't due to the fact that we went to 4 tapas restaurants over the next several days looking for the best tapas. We should have stopped at 2 or 3 and come back here (although there are some very fine tapas to be had in Barcelona!).
Very nice place, satisfying food. When you get sick of going to the tapas places, come here and you will be delighted.

The meal we had at Ristorante Eden was very good. Service was friendly and prompt. The atmosphere is charming.

The dishes are prepared fresh and the flavors are very pleasing. The penne with chicken dish would have been more enjoyable if there were more chicken in the entree and fresh ground pepper provided.

terrific restaurant in busy Barcelona. They have wonderful luncheon specials, the service is great - friendly and efficient, and no problem if you don't speak Spanish! It was a nice respite from a full day of touring and shopping, after just getting off a cruise ship. Great value, reasonably priced.

We stumbled across this restaurant one Friday lunch time, service was rather slow providing we were only us and one other couple when we arrived. However when we left it was jam packed full of locals. We had to keep reminding various waiting staff that we were still waiting for our drinks. The food arrived before we received our drinks but the Sangria was amazing, the best we have ever had.

My friends were vegetarian and went for the Margarita, it was a shame that they could not a basic classic dish right.

I had a delicious filling pasta dish and other friends enjoyed the Calzone

The restaurant was rather dark inside when you went down the stairs. It felt a waste sitting in the dark when it was a nice day outside but it was too windy to sit on the outside dining area.

Would definitely recommend this place!!
