We found this by accident, not inspiring on the outside but the 'Polperia' above the door caught our attention. Excellent tapas, with an unbeatable speciality of Polpo Gallega, the most expensive thing on the menu but well worth it. Otherwise prices very average. We went...More

I am sorry to say but was not really surprised by the octopus here. At the end of a tour the guide said this is the place where local eats. Went there, ask for it, and was really disappointed.

We stumbled on it quite accidentally, and we were glad we did. Food was good and we all agreed that it was the best octopus we had ever tasted. Staff was friendly and helpful. Only one thing bothered - the place is quite small, so...More

El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
places that live and breathe such exciting energy
regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants
