Our rental agent recommended this place as good and convenient. We liked it so well we returned 2xs in our short 4 day stay. The food was simple but excellently prepared. The staff were efficient, helpful and made the experience, "of course you must have some garlic toastada and olives with that, how about some vino tinto...." and they were... More

Knowledgeable and friendly staff helped translate the Spanish/Catalan menu and suggested a range of tapas for starters. All good - plenty to eat. Main courses a bit more variable. Fish excellent - simply cooked and tasty. Children had pasta - less interesting. Good value and within stones throw of sagrada familia.

Our family are all about the local/ authentic cuisine so when we saw the reviews on trip advisor and decided to go to La Llesca. We had the lamb, pork cheek, grilled vegies, cod, and the bread with garlic tomato and a sangaria! It was very delicious and the bill was 66 euro for four people! The waiter was very... More

The restaurant is small but cosy and welcoming, we almost missed it as there were no pushy staff outside trying to get our trade, just a very polite waiter who came outside to ask us if we needed help translating the menu into English, it sounded authentic and tasty, and we were not disappointed, the food was delicious, the staff...

To this wonderful family run gem. AMAZING food and charming staff. Would eat here every night if we could. We wanted to try other restaurants, and did for lunch......but were drawn back for dinner every night. Do not confuse this restaurant with others that are similarly named. La Llesca is located on Avinguda de Gaudi, right around the corner from... More

If you have to stop for lunch or dinner - DO NOT miss out on this excellent hideaway just steps from the sagrada familia basilica at 12 av. Gaudi. NOT to be confused with restaurant of similar name located near waterfront in Barcelona. A bit dated but very quaint atmosphere - family run business for more than 40 years. Menus... More

We visited Barcelona in May and came across this fantastic restaurant at the foot of the Sagrada Familia. We are vegetarian and we had no problem getting wonderful food. The waiter and waitress were just lovely - really helpful and despite our lack of Spanish/Catalan. We loved the place and returned there for another meal. The food was authentic Catalan... More

Our family stayed 6 days in Barcelona & this restaurant stood out as the best one so we went back multiple times. Although there is no menu in English, the staff is very friendly & translates/answers questions. The 4 of us ordered separate fish dishes that were all excellent. I would describe this place as a small family restaurant with... More

This restaurant was near our hotel so we ate there the first night. I was a little concerned that the menu was only in Spanish and we could only guess at it. But the waiter could not have been more charming, personable and helpful. Our first meal was great, so great that we didn't see any point in going elsewhere... More

This place was right near the Basilica which had us concerned, but after being seated we decided it was a place worth trying. There are no English (or other language) menus, but the servers were very helpful for translation and recommendations. The food was very delicious and savory - we had 4 dishes and bread and it was too much... More
