We had a great time at this restaurant that has a characteristic interior design of a tapas bar. The quality of the food and wines is great and there is a relaxed atmosphere with waiters shouting across the room, having fun, etc.

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
