This bar is worth to visit if you are close to Plaza Espanya. Always friendly stuff, great coffee, nice breakfast, very good snacks and a perfect (cheap) Menu del Dia! High recommended! !!

The menu of the day here (12 noon to 4pm) has easily been one of our favourites of our Spain holiday. At €10.90 you get an entree, main, drink, bread and choice of either dessert or coffee/tea. The entrees have been exceptional without fail. Beautifully presented and really delicious. The mains are slightly less enjoyable, but good value and well... More

This a low profile place, actually "a hidden gem" in Barcelona! Great place for having breakfast or lunch. The food is delicious and low cost. It is a family restaurant with a helpfull and lovely staff. A special kiss for the cheff and for the lovely Sofia, the owners' daughter.

More of a local place. Haven't seen any other tourists. Found it on TripAdvisor. Really good choice for a mid day meal. Probably the best apple pie I have had.

We called in to Mono Risto on our way back from seeing the Magic Fountain, after reading the previous good reviews on here. Our only disappointment was that it was our last evening, if it hadn't been we would have been in nearly daily. We had the curried chicken with apple and cous cous, which was divine, so tender and...

We were a bit hesitant to have dinner at Mono, as we were the only patrons in the restaurant. However, after reading the lunch reviews, and after the owner shared the chef's specials with us, we chose to stay. Our choice proved to be a very good one. We enjoyed an order of olives, hummus, goat cheese over eggplant (sublime!!),... More

Great sandwich. Really! Restaurant is mostly for locals, not a huge menu, but everything is good and the guys who run it are very friendly. Worth a stop if you're in the neighborhood

Staying in El Raval

Neighbourhood Profile
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 forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
