We had just completed a tour of Casa Mila "La Pedrera" and were hungry. I had read about L'Anxoveta ("Anchovy" in Catalan) on Trip Advisor so we walked to it. "A wonderful Mom and Pop spot" is how Constant Companion first described it when we...More

Really enjoyed this restaurant. The service was really friendly and quick. The food was also delicious and the patatas bravas were spicy like they should be!

My husband and I went past for a tapas lunch. Very friendly and excellent food. Minimalistic and trendy but they serve a mix of traditional tapas and other food. Very nice!

No idea how this place could get such good reviews. Everything was covered in so much salt that it was borderline inedible. Please don't waste your time. Really bad.

The owner was very nice and welcoming. Service was fast and efficient, even though the restaurant was almost full. The food was quite good; I particularly enjoyed the mushroom cannellonis. Overall a good choice when you're in the Gracia neighborhood!

The owner was very friendly and the service was fast. Sadly, the food was quite average and a bit pricey for what was in our plate. Overall, a good place to have lunch or to dine with friends. Don't expect an exceptional experience.

Gracia literally stands out from the pack. It used to
be an independent town until late into the 19th
century. Though it’s just a short commute away from
the centre, a visit here feels like you’re in a whole
different city. The bohemian vibe has drawn many
international artists to this area, resulting in a
wide selection of galleries, live music and artsy
boutique stores. The nightlife is centered around the
