We’re on a family cruise on stopover in Barcelona. We by coincidence sat down at Cafe Emma, and what a great experience with the food. This great quality and we can only recommend this place for others, who want quality food.

I hate the ordeal of finding a place to eat in a foreign city. I am no foodie, so when I do identify a nice, quiet, ordinary restaurant that serves good, basic food and isn't outrageously expensive, I go back. We ate at Cafe Emma...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
