Food was fresh and amazing, the portion size was freaking small, the staff was bit judgemental when she knew we booked through Fork.com with discount. So the only 2 stars deducted was for first 15-20mints when we felt a bit unwelcomed. Even when the restaurant...More

Our hotel recommended Trobador which is nearby. We were disappointed in the food. The low point was the paella which seemed to have been prepared previously and heated up to be served. The rest of the food was mediocre to poor. Service was OK.

This cafe/bar was a few doors away from our hotel. We went every morning for what we found to be the most British style breakfast. Enjoyed the food and the staff were great.

I ordered the chicken and it was charcole on the outside and bloody in the centre. When I sent it back and ordered a ceasar salad instead it was drenched in mayonaise and really soggy.

Had a good meal , onion soup was fab, my husband said his steak was "flavoursome and tender " great ambience, not so touristy as in the larger squares. Worthy of a relaxed visit

Happened upon this little restaurant in a beautiful quiet square in Barcelona on our last night. Enjoyed the whole meal but particularly a very authentic and perfectly cooked vegetable paella! My cousin had the seafood and meat paella and was also suitably impressed! Best paella...More

We visited here last summer and had a good lunch so we went again. At this time the food was quite average and little bit touristic. The Daily menu was around 12€ including very tasty bread and wine so not very expensive at all. Service...More

Set on a bustling street in the heart of old Barcelona near the gothic cathedral, El Trobador Ferran is a popular choice for fusion Mediterranean brasserie food in very stylish setting. The decor is bold and colourful, like a troubadour's costume, with harlequin floors and chair backs, purples and reds splashed everywhere, musically themed graphics on the walls and cheery lighting. Lightfooted waiters zip through the dining room. The menu is grill-based, with dishes like starter of grilled artichokes, mains of skewers of prawns with bacon, grilled fish and meat dishes, pastas and risottos, and dessert of crema catalena. There's a daily menu, too, featuring seasonal creations.
