I came here on the recommendation of a friend. After feeling a bit lost, we were happy to find the restaurant and really pleased with the food. It was all extremely good quality - not your typical spanish meal, but amazing nonetheless. The tuna tartar...More

Tucked away in a dodgy side street, this friendly bistro has lively and fun staff and an interesting short menu. The food was bistro good but certainly not the best we had in Barcelona. Good for an inexpensive casual supper ( about € 60 for...More

Someone wrote earlier here in TA, that area of Cera 23 looked like "not that safe". That really came to reality when we walked along the Carrer de la Cera. The street is just 8-10 minutes from Rambla, but the atmosphere is from the lights...More

Without a doubt our favorite place in Barcelona. We were there for a long weekend and found this little gem tucked on a side street on the last night. It's a friendly little place that's very popular and thankfully they managed to squeeze us in...More

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

We had the concierge of our hotel call them directly and make a reservation for us. That was the easiest and most secure way to do it I think.

I think so, yes. Just ask the staff to call a taxi for you right when you finish.
