Very small yet cosy place. I had a veal burger that was very dull and boring. No flavors no twist. Came with boiled potato and veggies o hot stone?! Fo not see the point of hot stone when food was already cooked and grilled. Service below expectation. Soup was includes in price.

On a week's holiday with friends we stayed in an apartment on Carrer de Commerc in El Born. One night we went into Pirineu with no expectations; the menu looked interesting. We were seated by a very welcoming waiter/ manager. It was hard to make a choice, it all looked so good. The food is based on produce of the... More

La Llavor dels Orígens is a small restaurant but very atmospheric. The authentic Catalan food is well presented and tasty. The variety available will please most groups of people, even with finicky appetites. The revamped menu makes it easy to select without unwelcome surprises. And the prices are extremely agreeable. I would strongly recommend the cod, the fisherman's soup, and... More

This was around the corner from where we stayed and we walked past this restaurant quite a few times before realizing it was more than a butchers shop. The owner welcomed us and we walked up the back to the lovely restaurant. The staff were very friendly and explained the menu, recommended a wine and we had a fantastic few... More

We dropped by La Llavor dels Origens more or less by coincidence, and were very happy with the choice. We chose the 22 euro set menu which gave us plenty of very tasty food. The five (!) starters were perhaps the highlight of the meal.

We have found that place wondering on the narrow streets of Born! It's very pleasant! Rather small but with nice decor! It was busy Sunday lunch service and we ordered two salads with turkey, peach, pear and hazelnut vinaigrette! The waiter arrived telling us that there is no turkey left but they could swap it for duck - so we... More

This restaurant is not fancy. It is authentic. Located in the old Born area of Barcelona, close to the port, this place is housed in an old wood & glass store front on one of the winding lanes. Recommended by a local tour guide, we could not have been happier with our meal. The server spoke limited English, but was... More

I have been many times to Barcelona and each time I am in the area of Paseig de Born I stop for lunch or dinner at La Llavor dels Origens. A simple space with minimal design and zero pretentious, a few steps in front of the majestic gothic church of Santa maria del Mar, Origen serves Catalan dishes and wines.... More

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.
