We have been visiting Barcelona for the last 16 years and every time we pop in and have lunch a few drinks in this place. It's easy to walk into thousands of bars and restaurants in this City serving every imaginable cuisine, many cater for tourists selling generic 'picture food' but if you are looking for old school Spanish family...

Friendly place but there are better options. Although the owner is nice and friendly but the food is all served defrosted and the cooked a bit. If wandering near the place, could just come in and check it with a quick drink just to feel the family business being done.

This is one of my favourite places for a Menu del Dia lunch in Barcelona. A real family-run bar, the food is fresh and always tasty. The homemade tortilla is amazing, especially the squid ink one! There aren't many places in the Gothic Quarter where the menu is read out to you at your table in Spanish - no laminated... More

One of my favorite memories in Barcelona was meeting the owner and his great family. We were exploring Barrio Gotica and we saw a sign with a cheap price for beer at Meson Burgales/El Cid, so we made note knowing that we would return. We sat down, had some beers, great tapas (tuna empandas...mmmm! trust me) and nice conversation with... More
