We stopped in the wine bar for a late lunch. Everything was fantastic - great wine recommended by the friendly staff, a great beer for my husband, and the pork sandwiches were amazing! Would absolutely make a point of going back next time we are...in Barcelona.More

My husband had seen this bar profiled on TV before we left for Barcelona so I e-mailed and made a reservation (which was needed!). Service was friendly and efficient and the food was very tasty. Obviously the wine was great! It was very busy but...this just added to the great vibe. We recommend that you pay this bar a visit if you are in Barcelona - very enjoyable!More

This place has two names: the front is a bar (Bar Brutal), the back is a restaurant (Can Cisa). Both are excellent. You enter through the bar. On my recent vacation to Barcelona, my friends and I ended up at Bar Brutal three nights out...of our week there. The bar is fun and lively with 80s music. Bartender super nice. The dinner was fantastic! We tried Hay smoked oysters and I want to go back for more!!! The entire meal was very good. Our waitress was so fun and personable. She helped pair a few bottles of wine with our dinner selections. Delicious wine too!More

We had such a lovely time at bar brutal. The staff are so knowledgable and will assist all your enquiries. They are brilliant with allergens and the meat platter is amazing! We have returned on each visit to Barcelona and it keeps getting better!

A must if you enjoy natural wine. Great ambiance. Very busy so make a reservation any day I’d the week unless you plan to go right when they open. Very very good wine of course and we had snacks which were very good. Service depends...on which server you get.More

We were looking for a place to eat that was still open and found Bar Brutal. The food was fantastic. I was nervous to try calf brains but the waiter convinced us and I was pleasantly surprised. The octopus was incredible and I have never...had a flan like that before. I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for fine cuisine.More

El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
places that live and breathe such exciting energy
regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants
