We had lovely lunch at Petra today. We both were awestruck by delicious and memorable prix fixe 3 course lunch menu with choice of a drink for 12.5 Euros! This quant, cozy, friendly restaurant is a must if you are in Picasso Museum area.

We had a very nice meal a Petra. The food is prepared with love and very good. Prices are also acceptable. The place of course has tourists (like us) but is the closest to a real Spanish restaurant in the quarter. Certainly recommendable...

This restaurant is one of the best in Barcelona. I've been quite a few times for lunch and even had their New Year's Eve dinner menu with my husband this past year. I highly recommend it! The house wine is tasty and the menu changes regularly, I've had several dishes on the menu and every one of them was superb!... More

Had high expectations based on tripadvisor reviews. Very disappointing experience. Portions were tiny compared to other restaurants we've eaten at in Barcelona. Food ideas were good, but quality just wasn't there. It cost us literally 2x as much as other restaurants for about half the quantity of food. Not sure if it was an off day or what, but most...

Not sure if you can make reservations but we went and there was an hour wait. We loved the food, service and atmosphere. What a first class food!

We hadn't booked a table, but we were lucky, as we arrived quite early and managed to get a table,before the restaurant started to fill up. A very quirky place, with all the menus on wine bottles and cutlery used as lamp shades, very unusual. We all opted for different dishes on the menu and each one was delicious and... More

We were 5 people that arrived much later than we had booked, but they didn't complain at all, waited patiently for us to order the dishes and all with a very frank smile in the face at all times. We order a little bit of everything (various salads, pasta, fish, duck, burratas, hamburger) and every dish came with a very... More

This restaurant is right in the El Born district and is a great choice for the selection and the price. Their menus and specials are printed on wine glasses! I did one of the daily specials and was NOT disappointed!

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.
