The seafood was good but waited ages for someone to take order. If you are sitting next to the bar. Your cloth might smell of cooking after.

The most famous kiosk in the Boqueria. You need surely to wait for some time before being seated (ask a waiter and register your name). Yet it is worth waiting: the service is really nice, the food is not bad and the price is OK

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
