The Born is a district full of restaurants and tapas places, it's hard to choose but El Guindilla caught our attention. We ate a great entrecôte and tapas were also really tasteful. Recommended!

This one jumped out at us, as it appeared a little more authentic and had lovely shaded outdoor seating (Upon inspection, it’s actually very smart inside!) We had fantastic Cheese and Nut Bread Tapas, Chorizo Mash (delicious!), Iberico Ham and the Chicken Fingers I’d say...More

We recently stopped here for lunch. It took some time for my meal to arrive but the chicken burger was delicious. The fries were fresh not frozen. Sitting outside on their patio was a very enjoyable retreat from the hustle of the district.

We totally agree with your comment: we do not eat chorizo with everything, and even less with paella, so in none of our paellas you will never find a piece of chorizo, because we cook them as close to the traditional recipe as posible. Regarding...More

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
