Went to there as a recommendation for Tapas. I probably would look else where in what I view as a tapas. But can't fault the restaurant. Staff where friendly. Tapas was ok. Would recommend the chicken croquettes. You get a sense of history and is just off the las Ramblas.

We went for dinner and had the black seafood paella which was very good! Decent prices compared to other restaurants on Las Ramblas. Would definitely go again.

I really liked this place in 2015 and wanted to go back to it. But now it was totally another experience. First, many menus were available only for at least four people. The service was bad. The starter and main course came at the same time. The main course was totally tasteless. And then suddenly they came to ask to... More

Beverages were forgotten, one main dish was served when the others were already done, the wrong bill was given ... and all without any hint of "sorry" - the food was ok, but nothing special. Barcelona has better options, by far!

This restaurant offers a tapas tasting menu. It is a great experience trying this menu because the dishes just keep coming and with each delivery the friendly waiter tells you what they are. It is a lot to eat so go when hungry. Not so hungry? Then pick from the normal menu.

My boyfriend and I split 3 tapas, seafood paella, and a liter of Sangria for 40 euro. The calamari was amazing and the tomato-rubbed bread was simple but not to be missed. I had my first ever paella in Spain and was not dissapointed- lots of fresh seafood and wonderful spices. It was easy to find and located in a... More

Description
This historical place, defined as a museum by many people, is one of the few restaurants in Catalonia where you can enjoy several tapas and paella in a very special taurine/bullfighting ambiance with old pictures, paints and trophies that remember how bullfighters lived some time ago, when Barcelona was an important place for bulls! Take note that, at the beginning of the XXth century, bullfighting was as important as football in all Spain... This restaurant opened in 1950 being the headquarter of one of the oldest taurine/bullfighter association in Catalonia, called Peña de Gallito y Belmonte, created in 1920 and still alive in spite of the current situation (bullfighting is now forbidden in Catalonia). Thanks to this association, our restaurant received many famous bullfighters like José Tomas, Luis Miguel Dominguin or El Cordobes, well known dancers & singers as Lola Flores and other important people as Matias Prat. Even a movie called "tiempos mejores" with Arturo Fernandez has been filmed here in 1994! We kindly invite you to discover the photos hung on the walls around you... Conscious of this important historical heritage, we refurbished a few months ago our restaurant and tried to enhance all these testimonies. We maintained a classic decoration with warm colors and stones at sight. We placed a small red wood wall around our two main rooms in order to imitate a Taurus square and in our two smaller rooms, we used old ceramics and rustic painting to recreate the Andalusia style. We remain specialized in tapas and paellas but we also offer salads, meat and fish with a special mention to our traditional and delicious oxtail... As a complement, we offer different kinds of menus for groups too, with prices between 17,90 Eur and 22,50 Eur per person (beverage included like sangria, wine, water, softdrink or beer). These menus are compound by several tapas to share and it is a good way to discover many typical Spanish dishes at a very reasonable price. We hope you will enjoy our restaurant!

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.
