The starters were very nice especially the stuffed Avocado but the rib of beef on the grill was very tough and not cooked as well as it should be! Also the Provençal potatoes were just fries with garlic and herb on them! I was disappointed...More

We raise beef cattle in Canada and apart from our home grown steaks, this was the next best we have had in any restaurant around the world. The rib eye steaks were so tender and full of flavour. Very friendly and helpful waiters helped us...More

It wasn't that busy when we went so we didn't see any issues with the service. We had the steak which was perfectly cooked and the ravioli which was also really tasty. A nice change from the week of street food we had been having.

The food was good but the Pasta portions were too small. Also the side dishes of the Steak were not that spectacular. We also wanted to Order something before the kitchen closes but we couldn't. As an excuse we got a free drink.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

"A place where gastronomy, art and culture come together" An Argentinean restaurant in "El Born", Barcelona The restaurant has the appearance of a French bistro, the ambience and decor are part of its charm, but above all, what makes it special and what explains the resounding success is that it is an Argentine restaurant in Barcelona, that offers quality –and price. We offer an extensive menu with meats imported from Argentina, famous for its cut, taste and quality; handmade pastas; pizzas and grilled cheeses (like the famous provolone) . At noon, from Tuesday to Friday, we offer a menu of Mediterranean fusion cuisine, comprising a cream soup followed by a starter ,main course and desserts . Drinks are also included. There are four types of meat on the menu, these include an authentic Argentinean grill called "Criollo", plus another grill from the La Pampa region called "Pampero" and the Patagonian mixed Grill. The restaurant has a few private rooms for groups, located on the main floor. In the cellar, known as "El Foro Club" is a space available for a more intimate dinner or simply to have a drink.
