We were visiting Barcelona and researched a nice romantic restaurant so we settled on this place.. we ordered a main course each. My husband a beef bourgignon and I a Moroccan chicken dish. When my chicken dish came out I genuinely thought it was a dessert it was so small. I wasn't extremely hungry thankfully but this dish was the... More

Excellent food, this was a great find. The starter courses were large and had good variety. A few of us had the beef stew for main. I had oxtail which was very good. My wife had the cod also very good. Need to come back here again.

Charming, romantic atmosphere with an inventive menu. Surprised the reviews are so mixed. Our first courses were very good, esp the melon salad with pink peppercorns and cheese. Both second courses also very good, mine was a steak filet with chocolate sauce, what a great idea! Hubby's was grandmoms melt in your mouth veal both with very tasty mashed potatoes.... More

Lovely dinner in a romantic setting. Delicious and unusual dishes: turkey terraine, roasted "cock" (chicken) in pastry, grilled dorado (whole fish) with noodles, salmon burger. Wonderful appetizers of ham with toast and salad, melon and buratta, and crystal bread with onions and spices. Great red wine -romantic- in it's name under 17 euros- wonderful special dessert cake!

We were delighted to find this candle-lit, cosy little restaurant down a back-street in the lively neighbourhood of Born and the food did not disappoint! My husband had an extremely generous serving of pan-fried fois gras (which he would have liked served slightly warmer). I had a veal 'spiral' burger which was served with a delicious sauce. Our starters were... More

This restaurant has all that is in needed to provide a memorable dining experience, however it is unfortunately let down by the food and to some extent the price (just under €100). It is well located, has a good ambience and is tastefully decorated. The staff are friendly and attentive. The menu is inventive and eclectic, regrettably it just does... More

The ambience was great jazz music, tables beautifully set. We arrived a bit early around 9pm and we were the only guests in the restaurant. They had an English menu but the waitress was unable to elaborate. She told us the pasta of the day was a squid ravioli but after tasting it it was a squash parmesan It was... More

Just got back from a 3 day trip with a friend and this was the (only) low point. I've visited Barcelona several times and there are many, many lovely places to eat; this is not one of them. The food did not remotely live up to its description on the menu. 16 Euros for a 'carpaccio' of mushroom, mango and... More

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighbourhood Profile
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 ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
