I went there with a group of colleagues on Thanksgiving Day and it was a lovely and delicious way to celebrate. There were seven of us, one of us vegetarian, we each bought three or so dishes and shared freely -- everyone was more than satisfied. A little pricey but worth it.

Canete turned out to be perfect for tapas. The place was abuzz with energy and activity. We sat at the bar, picked out a couple of items: duck, supergenes and shrimp and then watched the show happen in the kitchen as all kinds of other delicacies passed by. We finished up with a super rich chocolate desert: a kind of... More

Fist night in Barcelona and our hotel gave us this recommendation. The atmosphere was fun, if not a bit noisy, and the tapas were delicious but it's a bit over priced. I left hungry before I ran out of money. I think there are probably equally good places to eat in Barcelona for less.

This was the tapas bar I most wanted to visit, and the eggplant ribbon tapa was spectacular. Other customers mid-afternoon were locals. The interior was beautiful. But we found the service brusque and condescending and the prices higher than comparable tapas bars we visited.

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.
