Was passing and fancied a beer and some churros. Service was okay and the beer was nice and chilled. Sadly the churros were underwhelming. The tables needed a good wipe down.

We stopped for a quick lunch here and found it served good-value, tasty food although it wasn't exactly Michelin-starred cooking, it sated our appetites. We only had soft drinks and so can't really comment on the bar although it seemed well-stocked. The churros seemed popular...More

We stopped here at the end of a walking tour of Barcelona. The tour included stop-offs at a few different places for food and this was easily the worst. It is on La Rambla opposite the Opera. We were ushered upstairs to a hot room...More

La Rambla
Barcelona's most famous street was once a dry
riverbed. Now, La Rambla is a 1200-metre boulevard,
and a major draw for visitors. During the day, La
Rambla fills with pedestrians, some of which stroll
past impressive human statues and artists while others
take a break to people-watch while enjoying a drink at
