We received a recommendation from a guide to go here, so we checked it out and it did not disappoint. Staff was great and very friendly food was delicious.

We found this place thanks to our lonely planet books. We had tried to get in for dinner (on a Thursday night in December- make sure you book!) but we tried early after opening on the Friday and they found us a space at the...More

Spent hours here! Absolutely amazing tapas and great range of wine. Friendly, helpful and fun staff. Thought we’d only been here for a couple of hours and suddenly it was four hours! The environment was very relaxed. It’s in the Gothic Quarter, off the beaten...More

Very good cooking at moderate prices, inventive dishes and lovely relaxed atmosphere. Genereally a very friendly and busy place - just the way you expect a good tapas place to be. Booking is essential.

We have just returned to New Zealand after a wonderful European holiday. The food everywhere was terrific but Bar del Pla is something really special. We discovered it on day 4 of 6 in Barcelona. From then on this was the only restaurant for us....More

I came here to meet some friends for food at the tables at the back not the bar. Good food and service. You must book if possible if not get there early

El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
places that live and breathe such exciting energy
regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants

I'd recommend it especially if you want a table or decent bar seats. We turned up without but we're very early so managed to find 2 unreserved bar stools.
