Visited here one night, as our first choice restaurant was closed for refurbishment. Not disappointed though as the range of food on offer was good and all the dishes we tried (tapas) were well cooked and presented. Service a little slow at times - considering it wasn't busy

We had two halves of chicken and chips, both of which were delicious. It's a warm and welcoming restaurant with friendly and attentive service, there is a heated seating area outside but plenty of seating inside as well. Would visit again.

We were looking forward to experiencing authentic Spanish food and we received anything but authentic. The inedible "food" that was presented was cold pork and brown sludge that was Masquerading as a Paella. The seafood looked as if it was at least a week old. It is devastating to think that this restaurant is taking advantage of tourists by producing... More

There is a menu during weekdays from 12:00 - 16:00 that is incredibly good. We had the option with a ceasar salad and chicken. We weren't able to finish the chicken because it was a lot (wr are both female). The only thing that needs to improve is the service.The place was full and there was only one waitress so... More

Just got back from dinner but we're still hungry. Why? Arrived at restaurant around 9.30pm, wanted some paella and was told waiting time was half hour - fair enough, they needed time to prepare the dish. Went with waitress' recommendation for some tapas. However, at close to 11pm, we were still waiting for our paella. That was despite being assured... More

As most bars in Borne charge up to 6 euros for a simple beer, El Guindilla does not! It's a typical Spanish bar with a typical Spanish menu. Service is awesome, we just got invited to two extra beers, just like that! And at the end, that's what makes a bar awesome, it's service. I couldn't be happier! Good food,... More

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighbourhood Profile
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 ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
