This is, according to our concierge the only place to eat in Ramblas. It was everything you need to have in a local restaurant. Locals, quirky staff and fresh yummy food. Fish of the day was to die for. Don't forget to wander around the amazing food market next door.

Very similar to bar central in the market. Much better quality especially the baby suckling pig of the bone. When it's gone it's gone

another great place for some smaller or bigger food... always busy and after 9PM almost mission impossible without booking or a longer waiting time. smart and friendly staff behind the bar, a mixed crowd of locals and tourists on the bar. whatever you order will be fine, at least there was nothing to disappoint us. the tuna tartar is delicious.

We were asked to leave our seats at the bar, our replacements were regulars. Not a good experience. Very disappointed.

I was told this was the best tapas bar in Barcelona, and so far I have no reason to doubt this. The style is very traditional as we sat at the long bar and were served by apron-clad waiters. The service was very personable and professional, but obviously it is really about the food....which really was fantastic. Fresh fish is... More

It took my wife and I almost 2 years to discover Barcelona's best tapas restaurant. Don't look for other places, this is where you want to go. It has it all: nice setting, great service and fabulous food. They serve the usual tapas but simply much better with top ingredients and great preparation. Love sitting at the bar. Could not...

Staying in El Raval

Neighbourhood Profile
El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
