Tiny restaurant in the Raval neighbourhood, with short menu but real Venezuelan food. It's casual and with friendly staff; and even if the air conditioning should be improved, it's good value for money. Very good option to share a nice evening with friends.

Drinks and cocktails were amazing and the bar staff was really friendly. Price was okay (4-6€) and worth paying. Definitely a place to go! I recommend rum cocktails, mohito and piña colada.

We ordered a very nice and hearty Venezuelan food plate at Rabipelao, together with their classic beef burger. Both were very satisfying. It was happy hour as well, so we got a couple of banana mojitos, which were a little sugary, but a 4/5 nevertheless....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
