As an American who prefers to eat at 7, I appreciate that you can get their whole menu before 8:00. A good not-fancy place to grab a drink and a quality snack

Tipical Basque Country tavern (Sant Sebastian origin) where you can enjoy too many cooked and also fresh delicious pintxos like Spanish "tortilla", "xistorra" and so on. You can also order bigger portions. Really nice quality and normal prices. Enjoy also typical white wine named txacoli.

Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you
enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally
translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes
recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant
atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district,
Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end
international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the
glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best

I'm sure it would be. I know they're currently on holiday until the 1st Sept. but you only need to give them a call for a reservation. Or you could try logging on to Tripadvisor restaurants and you can often book a table... More
