We've eaten at La Bascula several times over three or four years. The menu is limited to around eight vegi dishes including two or three vegan and a couple of snack options. There's also usually several large sponge cakes on offer alongside the usual coffee,...More

I absolutely LOVE coming here. The sandwiches and the vegan burger are the absolute best, or the homemade icetea... and the cakes and coffees! The atmosphere is super relaxed and a bit alternative, its a vibe where everybody can just be themselves and it is...More

Saw this in the rough guide and thought we'd (mum and I) try it for dinner. I'm veggie but she's not. We had lovely starters (dips, pitta, breadsticks and carrots and cucumber, and also had a mozzarella, rocket, olive and tomato salad) but there was...More

It's a typical former Cereria (a place where candle were made) in the very center of the city! The staff is really kind and coffee & food are great! There are high table, except for an area for disabled people!

We were looking for something else than tapas and were attracted by the menu outside. Although it wasn't a restaurant we'd normally go to we where happy we had dinner here. Yes, it looks a bit messy inside, you have to eat from recyclable plates...More

Nice atmosphere in the middle of the gothic quarter. Very friendly service and tasty veggie food serve in single-serving dishes which add to the "organic" feel. All in all, great place for lunch.

El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
places that live and breathe such exciting energy
regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants
