We dropped into Chicoa as we veered off the main touristy strips. Our find proved to be exciting and surprising. The reception was 'cold' at first but warmed up after a little while-I think it mainly had to with the owner not being well versed...More

Was here for business but the atmosphere was just as good for romantic Dinners. Fairly intimate, with excellent food and wine and some of the best olives ever.

I had visited this restaurant a few times before and had good memories of it. Unfortunately it seems they changed owners. The incredibly unfriendly lady who runs the restaurant started ruining our lunch. Then the portions were small, overpriced and badly presented. Shame, since the...More

Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you
enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally
translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes
recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant

Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end
international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the
glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best
