We joined some of our traveling friends from our tour at La Botiga Restaurant. The restaurant was well positioned with views of the Plaza d’Espanya through their large windows. It had a good vibe. Everyone there was raving about the menu and happily, so taking...the advise of our friends, we tasted the local favorites such as the Acorn fed Iberian ham croquettes, l’Escala anchovies, Patate Braves and coca bread with tomato. The lunch was surprisingly reasonable for a tourist spot and fairly decent Spanish food.More

We found it as a good intro to the local food scene. Menu has daily specials, fixed price or a la carte. Paella was fine, you can order single pan portions. Sangria was better than most, service was attentive. Few complaints.

We went here before a concert, price was good and service was good but food was just ok, however chocolate pudding was amazing

This is a joke of restaurant! The grilled vegetables were literally floating in oil. The dorada (supposedly a fillet) was filled with bones, fatty and lacking any seasoning. The coca (traditional bread with tomato) was burned. Horrible heavy food, even when you choose healthier options.👎

Me and my husband celebrate our first wedding anniversary in the restaurant. Our experience were fantastic. The view is amazing at night, the food was delicious and the service, perfect. Our waiter Juan was looking after us very well. He was very professional, nice and...kind. He made our day much better. Big thank you for him and all of the team to make our celebrate perfect. Highly recommend this restaurant. Berni and RamonMore

In a great location, this restaurant has well-priced delicious food with lots of choices. The staff are all friendly and extremely helpful. You get a panorama of the city from the viewing platform too. Well worth the trip to Arenas de Barcelona.

Went there last night, choice of 6 restaurants to choose from so opted for the menu of the day including a drink. Only read reviews while we ordered the drinks and felt apprehensive about the food. Choice of beer, soft drink or glass wine and...bread included. Waiter was friendly and ordered promptly as restaurant was getting full. Starters came, portions were generous and quite tasty I particularly enjoyed the ham croquettes and the grilled vegetables were pretty good too. My partner ordered the broken eggs with serrano ham and fries cooked in olive oil, she was very happy. The main courses were average, tuna, a burger and a chicken dish but still enjoyed though the burger came with hand cut thick crisp I found too dry and the tuna came with just fresh tomatoes.we all opted for coffee instead of the cake as we were all too full and the white Americanos were pretty good. In all euro18.50 per head was pretty good value but tonight we will try another restaurant in the Arenas, you get a great view of the fountains and surrounding area on the 6th floor.More

There are plenty restaurants much better value for money than this one in Barcelona. Service was good and waitresses were friendly hence the two stars but the food was very poor. Small portions but that was a god send in truth as it really wasn’t...great. Can cook better food myself and that’s saying something.More

Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you
enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally
translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes
recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant
atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district,
Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end
international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the
glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best
