Boqueria market has many eating stalls. This is by far the best. The variety of dishes, the quality of the food, the simple cooking, the prices. Don't miss this gem. Amazing"!

I have to say that the food served here is stunning good. We tried many recommended restaurants in town and none of them is as good as this one. The seafood is fresh, well presented, cooked simply and nicely just the way seafood should be...More

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
