Roasted meat and burguers are great but side dishes fail to be a 'modernized' version of the original. Desserts must definitely improve.

We were walking around looking for somewhere to eat and stumbled across this place. Having a fussy teenager it depended on the menu being satisfactory for her! It was, so we went in without a reservation. After a little sorting out we were well accommodated. The menu is quite quirky and the emphasis is on organic foods (and wines it... More

This place is a short walk from the Palau de la Música Catalana. We stopped in, without a reservation, after enjoying a concert. This restaurant is owned by the same folks that own Els 4 Gats (located just down the street). It is a compact brasserie that offers a regular menu plus daily specials. We tried to show restraint in... More

We booked this restaurant on the back of trip advisor reviews . We must be fussy because this is just a typical tourist place that doesn't expect to see you again and the food is quite average . The service was very friendly from the girls though! I guess most people as tourists don't return???? But this is not 'cordon... More

A little hard to find but we got it recommended by a friend of mine that had been here 2 years earlier. Great service and food. They seem to really enjoy working there!

Three of us had a fantastic evening meal here. We wandered by one afternoon and popped in to book a meal for later. Very friendly attitude from the waitress. When we arrived later our name was recalled immediately - always a good sign. By 8pm the restaurant looked full, so I would advise booking. The menu isn't huge, but if... More

Good place to eat in the very middle of Gotic Barri, traditional menu with useful "menu of the day", medium prices, wide working hours without break (it's a problem for Barcelona), nice personal.

I had no plans to visit El Melic but it was close to where I needed to be. I had a surprisingly good burger (yes I am American but that is what I wanted that afternoon). Service and food was good.

Visited after finding great reviews on trip adviser. Seated 6 of us straight away. Waited a long time to be offered drinks, then a long time to order. The food was reasonably priced and tasted good, but the downfall was there being no jugs available for sangria (twice) and only 8 beers between 6 of us before they ran out.... More
