Reliable place for a quick & easy lunch, or alternatively linger on the outdoor tables over some beers. Prices very good and the size & quality of the sandwiches was unexpected surprise.

Our hotel was a block away and we ate here four times in five days. The empanadas are delicious - great variety, fresh ingredients and flaky pastries. Our favourites were the spicy meat, capresse, leek with goat cheese, meat with egg plant. The combination platter...More

Trip Advisor was how we found this gem. After trying several empanadas with very little satisfaction we turned to our faithful TA! Friendly staff, menu in several languages and very very nice empanadas! Well worth the train trip and walk to find them!

We loved the empanadas here. Loved the mushroom and chicken curry empanadas. The weather was perfect for the outdoor seating look at the city block. Traffic noise can be annoying at times but after all it's in the city. This is a highly recommended place...More

I was craving authentic empanadas, and a Google search turned up Rekons. The friendly woman at the counter handed me an english menu and patiently waited as I flitted back and forth admiring all of the perfectly crafted, golden empanadas. I settled on a few,...More

Empanadas were delicious - slightly smaller than I thought though (even though I could see them in the cabinet). Really friendly staff. High energy and efficient staff. Wife’s chicken and cheese sandwich was so tasty I didn’t get a look in!

This place hase realy good local food. Prices are low and saff is friendly (limited knowledge of english). The best deal is the salad with a drink and coffee that makes a perfect lunch for 10.90 eur.

hopeless service, offended waitress who brought empanada for 4 people on one plate, dry food, and far from the best. Tuna sandwich is a dry roll with a spoon of tuna, drama, we do not recommend it very much

My wife found this place on trip advisor and the moment we walked it seemed like a very popular local spot. We each got a couple of empanadas and they were the best empanadas we ever had. Also very reasonably priced would highly recommend it

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
