This taveren felt real authentic and local. I know they have been here since the sixties and after my meal I know why. The menu featured grilled meats, stews, seafood and much more.

Yes the value is good. My husband's chicken and fries, which tasted great, was very undercooked in places and couldn't be eaten. I had the butifarra and beans which I thought should be stellar here as it was touted as a traditional catalan restaurant... but I have had much better - best was at the restaurant that I can never...

We stumbled across this place and were seriously impressed! The Pica Pica seafood platter for 2 is an absolute gem, really well cooked, fresh and plenty of it. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The house red wine was fantastic for €6.50 a bottle. In an expensive city, this restaurant represents real value when considering the quality of food you're... More

Don't go here. Walking in the neighborhood we choose this restaurant lured in by the decoration and the attractive prices. The menu is pretty standard with a selection of meats and fish. I got a mixed platter of grilled meat and my girlfriend some fried fish. The meat was terribly cooked. Dry, fat and without flavor. The side of french... More

Had good quality Spanish cuisine at very reasonable prices. Nice atmosphere with friendly staff. Not fine dining but a very pleasant evening meal with wine, cost for two circa 45 euro's. If you are looking for a nice meal with no frills at good prices give this place a go.

Stumbled upon this when we were in Barcelona last week, best find of the holiday. Perfect if you want a coffee and even better if you want a feast. The food is great, very reasonably priced and good variety. We were there on a beautiful day.so sat in their lovely terrace. The service was ok, they were clearly understaffed on... More

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.
