Recommend steak and grill fish. Goat cheese is devious too. Lunch set start with 10 Euros with full dish. The owner is very friendly we really want to come back for the full steak if we have time.

Here you will get good meat, maybe we were expecting more as we are Argentines and meat eaters of course, so we had high expectations. Its is ok, you will have good food, service wasn't the best. I don't like it when they rush to take your plates, but they were ok, its not a personalized attention. The ambiance is... More

Just passed by on a business trip - the place is very inviting. They have this offer of a meal, drink etc and I picked the crumbed veal with cheese and ham because it was the item I like most. It was super as was wine, the venue and the service. I am really delighted.

...what's more to say? This place is a kind of a secret place in Barcelona. Family-owned since many decades from a family they come from Uruguay. Hey, and they know about steaks. The place has a very special and nice ambience. It looks like an old storage or manufacturing site. Quite and relaxed seating. it's good to go with friends,... More

Visited here mid week and it was very quiet so I was a bit apprehensive walking in knowing that the menu was a little on the expensive side. I was hoping it wasn't quiet because it was too dear and not very good. We don't speak Spanish or Catalan so the second apprehension was are we welcome when the first... More

Been there on my first day in Barcelona. The place is quiet and the interior is nice with good air quality. Food was fantastic and the price we paid was unexpectedly low for this level of service. Would recommend strongly.

As a regular customer of El Boliche, all I can say is it's one of the best Uruguayan steakhouses in the city. There you can enjoy the typical meat cuts such as "vacio" (flank steak) and "entraña" (thin skirt) or a just classic "entrecot" (ribeye steak), along with other grill specialties. Desserts are definitely a must. They offer different types... More

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
