Recommend steak and grill fish. Goat cheese is devious too. Lunch set start with 10 Euros with full dish. The owner is very friendly we really want to come back for the full steak if we have time.

Here you will get good meat, maybe we were expecting more as we are Argentines and meat eaters of course, so we had high expectations. Its is ok, you will have good food, service wasn't the best. I don't like it when they rush to...More

...what's more to say? This place is a kind of a secret place in Barcelona. Family-owned since many decades from a family they come from Uruguay. Hey, and they know about steaks. The place has a very special and nice ambience. It looks like an...More

Been there on my first day in Barcelona. The place is quiet and the interior is nice with good air quality. Food was fantastic and the price we paid was unexpectedly low for this level of service. Would recommend strongly.

As a regular customer of El Boliche, all I can say is it's one of the best Uruguayan steakhouses in the city. There you can enjoy the typical meat cuts such as "vacio" (flank steak) and "entraña" (thin skirt) or a just classic "entrecot" (ribeye...More

Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you
enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally
translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes

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
