Wonderful setting & delicious food. We booked the table for 8.30pm & were told we would need to leave the table by 10.15pm to accommodate the next sitting. Would have been nice to feel slightly less rushed - but we were warned so can't complain!

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

Yes, just make sure you have reservations. They turn away people without reservations all the time.
