When La Muscleria opened approx. 15 years ago (do not remember exactly), it was a new concept in Barcelona: to have moules/frites like in Belgium. No restaurant like that in Barcelona. The restaurant became immediately popular among neighbours (for eating there or take-away) and it...More

One of the best restaurants in Barcelona. We were a group of five, barely found a place to sit. Delicious food, and friendly waitresses. I do recommend, they have a big variety of muscles.

Popular little restaurant specialising in mussels and other seafood. The choice of sauces for the mussels is vast.

A really nice place to eat, not a lot of choice if you don't like mussels but a huge choice if you do! At first glance around €11 for a bowl of mussels seems a bit on the high side, but then you see how...More

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
