The food was nice, but with 30 people you couldn’t really learn anything. It started with a trip around the already crowded mercat bouqueria, which detracted rather than adding to the experience. I wouldn’t recommend.

The host showed up 45 minutes late, no market on Sunday and the group was too large for the small kitchen. Most of the ingredients were already prepared. It was fun, but mainly due to the other guests and the large amount of sangria. Not...More

If you are looking for a traditional Spanish cooking experience this is not it. I wish I would have listened to the previous negative reviews. The tour starts at a local bar that pushes you to order drinks and only takes cash. The class then...More

With 22 people all keen to get their hands onto some Spanish cooking skills this was a disappointing experience. Going to the market was just a filler - but we did go back to explore better on another day. The kitchen could accomodate 10, possible...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
