We came here because of all the rave reviews on Youtube and Tripadvisor. Ordered the house special - baby squid with eggs. Also got the foie gras with mushroom. Firstly, the baby squid with eggs was very very salty. It contains the ink, so it...More

We went for breakfast, and as others have mentioned there was a short wait. Not bad, just find someone who looks like they are finishing up and stand behind. Sitting on the high stools was not particularly comfortable, but that may be intentional so you...More

El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this
gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an
excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic
spots in the entire city. A sense of humble

record stores, second hand shops, and student bars
that seem to light up the streets day and night. The
rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day
