Barcelona is a city of variables, you can meet really great folk such as the staff of this pretty good restaurant in the El Gotic area of town and love the place then the next day get your bag stolen by some thieving scumbag in Montjuic and decide you never want to come back to the city. Which is a real shame because the people who you should remember are the lovely souls who make places like the Venus so great to visit.
My wife is vegetarian so the Venus scored for us by having some really good veggie options and a range of meat and fish dishes for me. Two nice courses each, a decent bottle of Rioja and more than a couple of coffee and Veterano brandies came to a reasonable €60. Recommended!
