The place was really cozy and the staff extremely helpful. Slightly pricey, but worth it. Either the the Swedish style "tapas" to share or the full dishes are just as good. Definitely worth a try!

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

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
