Bodega was close to our apartment and we were glad that it was open all day especially longer hours on the weekends. Great tapas and super delicious Catalonian food. We had several meals at Bodega that included breakfast (fried eggs with bacon), tapas and dinner. There are no cocktails but the bartenders (Juan and Raaja) will prepare you a great... More

This was just the place we were looking for--lots of locals and regulars, and a little out of the way with respect to the tourist sites. We had several tapas along with some pizza and paella. We would definitely be regulars if we lived here.

We searched for a local restaurant around the place we stayed. We found Bodega Joan and we were very satisfied by the food, the stuff, the location. There were a lot of local clients and that was the point, to try something that was not a "tourist" restaurant. We highly recomand the tapas, the paella and the "crema catalana".

I turned up here very hunger on a Sunday afternoon when everywhere else - except la ramblas- was not serving food. As I found the service good, staff are friendly and the food is great, and I didn't have to wait to 9 pm to eat. Great

We stumbled across this place near our apartment. The food was very tasty, especially the potato omelette, Russian Salad and cuttlefish. Pizzas were pretty good also (not by Italian standards but good anyway) Very helpful and patient service. Great prices. It was full of locals the day we had lunch.

Opened since July 1, 1942, Bodega Joan is one of the oldest restaurants in Barcelona and always has belonged to the same family. Joan's grandfather, actual director of the local, was the founder, and since then,it passed from father to son until today. Specialists in Spanish food and catalan food. Here you will find the true experience of a catalan restaurant bar, where we support the FC Barcelona with pasion and where the movement of people and joy are our dishes every day.

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
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 exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
