On Anthony Bourdain's suggestion, we added Bar Pinotxo to our agenda ... and it did not disappoint. Tucked away in the Mercat de la Boqueria, the small tapas stand delivers on creativity, flavor explosions and an overall no frills culinary experience. The menu may be...More

Simple high quality food cooked with good hands. They serve Pilsner Urquel that is a beautiful beer with a lot of flavor. The fried cream filled "Choocho" dessert is not to be missed.

Went in the morning for breakfast and plenty of spaces. Chick pea and pork was very bland and same with the omelette. The croissant was the highlight of the meal and bill was reasonable. Must try for the experience!

Everything is totally fresh in this small tapas bar in Mercado La Boqueria. We enjoyed the mussels, they were excellent. If in doubt, ask the waiter for recommendations on the fish/meat of the day. The place is fun, not to be missed.

Every time we go to buy some food here, we stop for lunch at this place - it's wonderful. Nothing fancy - at all - about the seating, but every plate is amazing. Yummmmm

Located in the fabulous Boqueria in the La Ramblas area of Barcelona this family owned and run bar is a must. Sit down for a snack and a drink and you will get a history of Catalonia and the Boqueria from three generations behind the...More

Located in Mercat de la Boqueria this is one of the those cultural touch stones that is really worth doing. We were fortunate to be served by the elder statesmen himself. He was very friendly and energetic which is quite remarkable considering his age. He's...More

Loved the Buzz of being in the market, food was okay however they forgot mine and only after waiting a while and reminding them did it arrive.I'd recommend it for the experience of eating in the Market only and not for the food itself.

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
