Very calm restaurant in the center of Barcelona. Unfortunately the staff weren't able to speak English so I had to order food with my perfect Spanish (I'm able to say about 10 words). Other than that the waitress was really nice. Food was delicious and we even get a bowl of olives as a gift as there was no gazpacho... More

I visited El Rincón twice in a month. Great food (the fried artichokes are a must), attentive staff and cozy place. The only thing I could go without were Julio Iglesias songs in the background.

Changed from the old dark style . Keeps the cochinillo and cordero , Aragonese food, from the past, but decorated to be light and clean. Good olives, bread , an interesting Cargol wine, bacalau, profiterolles ( very good) . Reasonable prices. We were surprised and pleased with the improvement

We ordered as well the seafood paella, a rate of 7/10, the baked cabrito was... More

I arrived in Barcelona this afternoon and really had no clue where to grab a bite of something authentic. Strolling down La Rambla I fell on Carmen street, #28. And it is worth the stop. Great food, good ambiance and the waiters are very welcoming and friendly. You will not regret it. We had Octopus, squid and see food paella.... More

They publish outside their menu del dia, and the when inside, they do not give you that menu. The food is basic and edible. But has no flavour. Frozen food. We overheard the waiter saying to make the people ordering menu of the day wait. Considering the menu of the day takes up 25% of their window, it is a... More

We had a lovely evening here...the food was excellent. We had paella and veal, food was fresh and portions were fairly big. Staff were super-friendly. Lobna was very welcoming and knew a few words in our language ...which was a ++ :). Cosy atmosphere and nice decor. Wish a was a local so I can re- visit :) AA+++

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.
