This is a great place to have excellent simple food at reasonable prices in a friendly, rustic, unpretentious atmosphere. I never miss the opportunity to go when I'm in Barcelona. Don't miss the various rice dishes.

We spent a relaxing week in Barcelona and tried numerous restaurants while we were there. We visited El Glop for lunch on the recommendation of a local and were very pleasantly rewarded. It was one of the few restaurants we tried in Barcelona that we would actually recommend. Unlike many restaurants in this city:

1. the food was tasty and cooked well (not under or overdone or burnt),
2. the service was attentive, without being too much in your face,
3. the restaurant itself was clean and comfortable, and
4. the prices were reasonable

It is a little bit away from the beaten tourist track but that in itself was attractive because it caters more to local Catalans.

We tried a number of dishes including their paella, mixed grill, etc. and all were good.

The restaurant has two dinning areas. We were sitted on the front one, in the very first table. We couldn't sit properly, there was not enough space with the table behind, so we ask for another table. The waitress told us there was no more tables, so we get up to leave and told her so. Immediately, she offered another table on the inner dinning area...
Food is fine, typical Catalan cuisine. Fishes in the menu are cooked in too much oil, but you can ask them grilled instead. Portions are big, too much in some cases, so better to share. They have a good selection of wines, both Spanish and Catalan. Decoration is nice, but chairs and tables are plastic like in a restaurant on the beach.

Had a great lunch here recently. They had a nice lunch special that included several courses for 8 euros. Everything was very fresh and tasty. Very friendly staff that were very attentive. You can eat outside on the street if you like. Location very close to Plaza Catalunya and Hotel Husa Barcelona.
