Description: "A place where gastronomy, art and culture come together" An Argentinean restaurant in "El Born", Barcelona The restaurant has the appearance of a French bistro, the ambience and decor are part of its charm, but above all, what makes it special and what explains the resounding success is that it is an Argentine restaurant in Barcelona, that offers quality –and price. We offer an extensive menu with meats imported from Argentina, famous for its cut, taste and quality; handmade pastas; pizzas and grilled cheeses (like the famous provolone) . At noon, from Tuesday to Friday, we offer a menu of Mediterranean fusion cuisine, comprising a cream soup followed by a starter ,main course and desserts . Drinks are also included. There are four types of meat on the menu, these include an authentic Argentinean grill called "Criollo", plus another grill from the La Pampa region called "Pampero" and the Patagonian mixed Grill. The restaurant has a few private rooms for groups, located on the main floor. In the cellar, known as "El Foro Club" is a space available for a more intimate dinner or simply to have a drink.

“Great restaurant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013

I've spent a couple of days in BCN, and I had a breakfast and a dinner in El foro, service was great. There are a variety of tasty meats in the menu that even having a good quality are cheap .
I really recommend.

“Very good place in El Borne”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

El Foro is a comfortable restaurant for every part of the day with a small but adequate menu. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We went there a couple of times during our stay in Barcelona not in the least place bcecause of the free wifi over there!

“Average food, lousey service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2013 via mobile

If you have plenty of time and don't care about customer service then this is the place for you! The waiters here are just awful- expect to wait a long time for your food, expect to wait for your menu, your drinks and your bill. And don't expect a smile or a thank you , because you won't get it.
Ultimately the food is average and not even a decent price- I live in the local area in Barcelona and I can tell you there are much better restaurants here!!
Stay away.

“Don't get the pizza”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2013

Stopped in to El Foro for a simple snack on our last night in the city. With all the great food in Barcelona it was definitely our mistake to get pizza. However, if a restaurant can't make a dish at least satisfactorily, it shouldn't be on the menu. This was clearly a reheated, frozen pizza, and not even a good one. I can't speak to the rest of their entre menu. Our desserts were pretty good.
