Wow is this place terrible. Took over an hour to get the food. I ordered sea bass and no where does it state on menu it is a whole fish. It was the entire fish, head, eyes, scales and all. No one wants to cut off a fish head and pick out scales with every bite at dinner. When I... More

We ordered one of the evening set menus. The quality of the food was excellent and the portion size was generous. The welcome and the service were also great.

We have ordered a seafood Paella for four people. It was not paella absolutely. It was full of liquid when paella should be dry or creamy. The seafood was very good but the paella execution was completely wrong in our opinion. Probabily other typical plates are better.

The place is very original, you have a rough and particular service, but if you don't take it seriously, it's fine. The food is regular, nothing amazing, but not bad at all. Good menus, check them.

I have had a dinner here. I ate a very very tasty black paella, I drunk 4 glasses of sangria (amazing gin sangria) and I ordered a coffee. In the end I spent 27 euros. It's a very honest price. The service was simple PERFECT. Congrats to all the staff!

Excellent drinks - the mojito is fantastic and minty, and only 5,50 euro. Beer and vermouth only 2 euro and really fresh, lots of seating outside, friendly service. The patatas caleuche were fantastic and great value. The perfect place to chill and relax with a great atmosphere.

Good local experience, old timey restaurant. Next time will ask for the Catalan menu. Olives were something else, also great anchovies. Monkfish main dishes pretty good.

Can Lluis is one of my favorite restaurants in Barcelona, and I have been coming here for more than thirty years. My wife, however, who also loves Barcelona and food, is not as fanatic. She complains that the food is heavy. I think that we each are right in different ways. The food is traditional Catalan cuisine, without flourishes. The... More

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.
