We stumbled upon this little gem whilst walking around the old town. Great little find. We had salads and tomato bread which were all lovely. Friendly staff and lovely surroundings. Well worth a visit

A really great place! Food, service, and atmosphere were all really great. Good spot for a date without being way too pricey or pretentious. I'll definitely go back next time I'm in Barcelona.

We went in the middle of the afternoon, outside meal hours and were served beautiful, flavorful interesting food at a reasonable price. We wanted a place away from the tourists and found it here. Real, authentic food.

We had a group of over 2o people. The food was absolutely amazing and they managed my very special dietary requirements perfectly. We had such a good time, such a lot to eat and drink - we were merry. The service was impeccable. When I go back to Barcelona I will make sure I book again.

We stumbled across El Portalon on a lazy Sunday afternoon while looking for an authentic Spanish meal. We were not disappointed. The service was prompt and enthusistic and the restaurant has a historic and authentic ambience. We ordered a range of tapas dishes and all were delicious; fresh and generous. A delighful way to dine and quite reasonable value. We are already planning to return for an evening meal.
