We found this restaurant on TripAdvisor and stopped by for a quick lunch. The food was wonderful. A very flavourful mushroom and truffle risotto was lovely. Pasta fresca with shrimp was prepared with a great sauce. Service was very attentive and thoughtful. Highly recommended!

Down a street you probably would wander down out of choice, is this little place. Great food & nice atmosphere to be in. It got very busy as we were leaving, so I would highly recommend booking in advance. I would only say that I...More

All the family enjoyed this very nice restaurant. It is very small but everybody is welcomed with smile and a lot of attention. The menu offers various typical dishes and even our children were happy. What we got was delicious. Definitely recommend the place !...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
authenticity protrudes from the many independent
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

We had the concierge of our hotel call them directly and make a reservation for us. That was the easiest and most secure way to do it I think.

I think so, yes. Just ask the staff to call a taxi for you right when you finish.
