Came here for dinner with my boyfriend, the look of the place definitely made me feel a little like back home, the decor and music was point on with the name of the place. We were nicely welcomed by the person in charge Leandro. Our meal was great, very good portions for the price and good flavors as well the... More

They have no idea on how to prep nachos, burger was average at best, slow service (starters arrived before our drinks! ) and then burgers whilst we were still eating the nachos. Desert took an age to arrive and not sure why as place was less then 1/4 full at best, friendly service though

Excellent diner, good burgers, fries etc. Ideal for when you have overdosed on the local cuisine (which of course is absolutely brilliant)

Came with family who prefer traditional British type food. We all found something that we liked and the service was excellent. Had booked via the Fork website advertised on TripAdvisor and was very easy. Also got the 30% discount applied with no problem promised via 'the Fork'. The cocktails we had were excellent! Thanks for a lovely evening

We visited twice during our stay, an afternoon and an evening and never had to book a reservation. This little hidden diner is absolutely gorgeous, the food and the staff were lovely! Every member of staff was helpful and polite, they also seemed to really know their customers who were regulars. The food was great, we had no complaints, I... More

Had a rodeo burger, fries and milkshake. Not much flavour in the burger unfortunately however the meat was cooked well. Sorry but wouldn't go back.

Bernie’s feels like a step back in time and a trip across the Atlantic to the United States of the 1950s (period décor, the Three Stooges – albeit on a large flat screen TV, period advertising posters, Vargas Girls, etc.). The food was good – a rich and well flavored vanilla shake, good and relatively hot fries, a tasty chicken... More

Ate here for a dinner and a lunch on a 7-day trip to Barcelona during the Christmas week. Good old fashioned American diner. Welcomed the respite from the Tapas and the ability to eat a burger and onion rings around the corner from our Gothic quarter hotel. Service was a bit slow, prices were fair and food was hot and...

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighbourhood Profile
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 ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
