Here I had the most delicious sangria in the world. You must try it. It's number 2 in the menu. The other meal (tapas) was quite average, but still delicious. Service was quick. And during the lunch time it can be really crowded.

Good food, average service, noisy ambient. If you are near, it's an alternative, but nothing more than that.

with a little help from our hotel staff we were able to get in despite being fully booked. The service was very friendly, and the food fresh, delicious and well presented.

I came here for brunch on a friend's recommendation. It was awful. I ordered scrambled egg, tomatoes, avocado and toast. The egg arrived completely raw. I picked it up with my fork and it just dripped right through. It was disgusting. My friend had another...More

Hi anniep84, We are sorry to hear that your experience at Elsa y Fred was not as expected. When cooking eggs, it comes a very personal taste as some people prefer them rather raw than well cooked. But, in this case, if you found that...More

El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
places that live and breathe such exciting energy
regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants
