We were short on time and hungry. Expensive and not good service, our food for 2 of us was brought out 25 minutes apart. Go somewhere else if you can.

I came here with a friend who lives in Barcelona. She had had good experiences in the past. I was unimpressed. The tapas were OK but they weren't anything special. We also ordered a paella. When it came my friend noted it was quite small compared to what you usually get served in Barcelona. On the plus side, El Rosal... More

We went here hungry after a long walking tour and weren't disappointed. The best potatas bravas we had in Spain and some other good vegetarian options.

This restaurant is overpriced with terrible food and terrible service, but ok on the wine front. We paid approx. €6 for 4 half anchovies which appeared to come from a tin (looks & taste). The potatoes were soggy, perhaps microwaved? The sauces may have been mayonnaise and mayonnaise mixed with ketchup. The croquettes were tasty, but a total rip -... More

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.
