The food journey with Xavi & Nico was very impressive! We feel it is better than a Michelin 3 Stars restaurant!

El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this
gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an
excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic
spots in the entire city. A sense of humble
authenticity protrudes from the many independent
record stores, second hand shops, and student bars
that seem to light up the streets day and night. The
rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day

Xavi and Nico can cater for all your needs as long as you advise them in advance. We were both vegetarians and ate with meat eaters and were offered excellent choices. Hope you have an amazing visit!
