The place is quite cosy and quiet. The staff are a bit serious but professional. The meal in general was good: a delicious burrata salad, a very tasty chicken and a dish of past, which was rather ordinary.

We ate here 4 years ago and had such good memories we made a point of going back this time. The lemon pasta with hake was lovely as was everyone else's food. We did not have a reservation but they made sure to get us a table and the service was terrific with the owner coming over to make sure... More

We were googling and found this place. It was a real tourist trap. We were ten persons, adaults and teenagers and tested different kind of patas as well as pasta. Half of us were ok with it but half of us was disipointed. My wife almost spitted up here pasta that should have pesto but had not. I tasted and... More

I have to say that after reading the high rating reviews for this restaurant, I wonder whether they are authentic... They have noting to do with the place we've been to. Very pricy (main of munkfish with just a few cherry tomatoes, couple of asparagus and sauce, no sides, for 23 Euros), very slow service, eventhough the waiter tried to... More

Stumbled upon this place and was not disappointed! Mixture of tapas to start and entrecôte and monk fish for main. It was all delicious and beautifully cooked. Staff were so lovely and helpful. Fairly expensive but so worth the money. Would 100% recommend.

This is a nice restaurant on a pedestrian street. They have outside and inside tables. The owners are from southern Italy and the food is very good- of course they suggested Italian wine! The owner came by at the end and it was clear that he was proud of this family restaurant.

Just about to leave for our restaurant of choice when a sudden thunderstorm halted us at the hotel door. Noticed that this restaurant was across the road and thought why not try this place? And what an amazing decision this was, we loved the Italian/Spanish fusion with their amazing tapas selection (you have to try the Grana Padano Croquettes and... More

Really good quality of pasta dishes, good choice for vegetarians - they even had more than 2 dishes to choose from(!) and nice vibe. Pleasant staff and would definitely try again.

Gravin is a cute little place and good for a romantic meal. The food was ok, and the wine was really nice, but not fantastic. There is probably better Italian restaurants around. We had a nice experience though and it does have a great atmosphere!

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.
