we found this restaurant by accident, but it was a very good choice. Although we didn't know the half of the food, we tried to risk it. The food was delicious, some of it was a little bit spicy, but the combinations were something new. It wasn't expensive for a Sunday lunch, because they have a menu for a good... More

I went here with my boyfriend and I really enjoyed the food and the general ambience. The waitress was very friendly and helpful when it came to accommodating to my gluten and dairy allergies. I am definitely going to go back soon!

Karakala is an authentic Lebanese restaurant which serves excellent food. We decided to go for a mezze dinner and ordered 6-7 dishes which was the perfect amount. Chose the Lebanese flan for dessert. Very nice staff.

A very good ambience and menu with traditional lebanese fares. Although small and unpretentious it is worth the visit.

Mezze Karakala is a Lebanese restaurant in the Gracia district We went there as a group of 5, the restaurant had been chosen by one of the others and proved to be an excellent choice. The place was fairly quiet, and they had reserved a circular table for us by the window. The waitress (owner?) was really knowledgeable about the... More

Staying in Gracia

Neighbourhood Profile
Gracia literally stands out from the pack. It used to be an independent town until late into the 19th century. Though it’s just a short commute away from the centre, a visit here feels like you’re in a whole different city. The bohemian vibe has drawn many international artists to this area, resulting in a wide selection of galleries, live music and artsy boutique stores. The nightlife is centered around the vibrant Gracia’s plaças, where young and old gather to enjoy a drink outside. Carrer de Verdi, its main street, offers affordable restaurants and a movie theatre that screens new as well as classic films in their original language. However Gracia's greatest treasure lies just up the hill at Guell Park, where Antoni Gaudi's vibrant and revolutionary art sculptures stand atop unequaled views of Barcelona.
