Brilliant food and nice service. We had a mix of tapas and local dishes, partly based on the recommendations of the waiter. The setting was also nice.

Four of us ate lunch here. We chose Grilled sardines and also scrambled eggs with smoked salmon, truffle, fennel and trout eggs. Really very tasty fresh flavours. Lovely small place, cool temperature and a stone's throw from Barcelona Cathedral. The bill was €58 for four...More

Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this

under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War
with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and
authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be
thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas
brought to life by the many small bars and local
