We had a lovely meal for 4 people at Govinda's. The vegetarian food was excellent and enjoyed by all, and the waitress was attentive. However, the restaurant, considering it is so near Las Ramblas, was relatively empty. They need to advertise themselves better and make...More

We went here as I had been missing Indian food over the last few months in Spain, and as a vegetarian this seemed an obvious choice. The food was okay, but was very simple and not particularly flavoursome. Service was slow

with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and
authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be
thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas
brought to life by the many small bars and local
