First the location is perfect away from all the noise of tourists. And yes this is Spain and they speak Spanish and little English (so for those who think they are rude, it's only a language barrier) and that's what makes the experience eve better. The food is great and price is very reasonable

We did not get a table, which is fine. The problem was that the staff treated us rudely and showed no interest on helping us. Manners are important.

We walked by the beautiful house and were drawn to it because it looked very authentic. Erika greeted us at the door and was extremely helpful the entire visit. She was funny and helped us practice our Spanish while ordering. The vegetarian in our group had a few options and chose the lasagna which she liked. The rest of our... More

Staying in Gracia

Neighbourhood Profile
Gracia literally stands out from the pack. It used to be an independent town until late into the 19th century. Though it’s just a short commute away from the centre, a visit here feels like you’re in a whole different city. The bohemian vibe has drawn many international artists to this area, resulting in a wide selection of galleries, live music and artsy boutique stores. The nightlife is centered around the vibrant Gracia’s plaças, where young and old gather to enjoy a drink outside. Carrer de Verdi, its main street, offers affordable restaurants and a movie theatre that screens new as well as classic films in their original language. However Gracia's greatest treasure lies just up the hill at Guell Park, where Antoni Gaudi's vibrant and revolutionary art sculptures stand atop unequaled views of Barcelona.
