We had amazing food here - was our first tapas in Barcelona and we've not found anything to beat it in 3 days. The food was amazing, my only critique would be the skirt steak was a tad chewy - the black pudding was so...More

La Prudencia stands above the average fare for the area. A full bar, and a limited but solid wine selection. However, the reason to go is small and extraordinarily creative and luscious snall plates. Be sure to check out the daily specials and ask about...More

Great tapas! Small portions for 4.5€, but the food would not have been out of place in a fine dining establishment. Got the friendly bar tender to recommend a wine and was not disappointed. Also has free WiFi. Surprised it was so empty! They also...More

The concept of the restaurant is very interesting: small plates to share or not for a limited price. We were 6 and we were able to try most of the dishes in the menu. When you go you have to try the Risotto and the...More

The restaurant is small but even if you have to wait to get a table, it'll be worth your while. We were three and shared different tapas (different plates in small servings). We fell particularly in love with the squid canelon: the filling, the sauce,...More

Great little tapas bar with the best staff! We reserved a table for 13 people for a friend's hen party and they produced a menu especially for us. We even had to choose a cake beforehand, which they then baked especially for us. Amazing!

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

Only tapas. But can be shared by 2. The beet salmorejo is a good portion size as is the risotto, ravioli, carpaccio and the desserts. Not huge but pretty decent size considering they are tapas. And even more based on the... More
