It's a perfect place for a group of people who can't decide on what to eat. This food hall in El Born has something for everyone. Tacos, pizza, sushi, hamburgers, fish, croquettes, fried cheese, desserts, etc. We skipped purchasing tickets and opted to pay for...More

If you want to experience the real deal about cooking, start to look another options. Here you coul enter with your familiy, like entering to a museum of tourism food. It's not cheap at all.

Hmmm....a food court in the middle of historic El Born. What a great concept. They had tacos, fries, sushi, eggs, fish, pizza, sweets and probably other things that I don't remember. Would be great for a larger group that can't come to agreement as to...More

We were recommended by friends to come here. You buy a bulk of tickets, e.g. 5 units, and then you walk around in the food market and change your ticket to the tapas styled food you want. It includes a wide variety of options. Food...More

Mercat Princesa is probably one of the larger restaurants you'll find in El Born. So if you're having trouble getting into one of the other restaurants on the neighborhood, this is a relatively quick and easy option. That said, the food and experience were underwhelming,...More

We went here for dinner after reading the positive comments, but were disappointed. The place was almost empty and serveral food stalls did not have any personnel present. The vegetarian options were limited to pizza and veggie sandwiches. We left without ordering. I do not...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

We ordered at each counter what we wanted, ate it then went to the next counter. It is a fun place to go.
