Gorgeous food, great ambience, octopus melts in the mouth, steak was superb. The waiting staff were hilarious and made the visit very personal. Quite hidden in the back streets but worth the effort

This was a superb dinner - in a relaxed informal and friendly small place. Food was fantastic (slow cooked lamb was wonderful) house wine was local and to die for. This place deserves its high rating - very special.

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

We had the concierge of our hotel call them directly and make a reservation for us. That was the easiest and most secure way to do it I think.

If we have tickets for a performance at 21:30 and our dinner reservations is 19:00. Will we be able to complete dinner in 2 hours or less?

I think so, yes. Just ask the staff to call a taxi for you right when you finish.
