We came back to this restaurant because we loved it and we were again happy to have chosen it for our anniversary lunch. The food is amazing. Authentic Korean cuisine in the heart of Barrio de Gracia. We were again impressed by the kindness of the owner, she was lovely with our two moths son. We will for sure come... More

This restaurant has incredible food and really nice service, the side dishes are for free like all korean restaurants and you can get the best bibimbap ever. I get one at last one time a month because I miss it....

We ordered seafood pancake, bibimbap, pork bulgogi, fried glass noodles and kimchi soup to share amongst 4 of us. The portions were generous and the cooking done with care and pride. All of them were excellent and we particularly liked the seafood pancake. Prices were a little high but we felt it was well worth it for the food quality... More

We have stumbled upon this well-hidden restaurant on our way back from Guell Park. It was, hands-down, the best Korean meal we had outside of Korea. I will say more: their bibimbap was the best I ever had! We also tried bulgogi and soft tofu stew (also great). Banchan (selection of kimchi side dishes) are complimentary. The menu is in... More

We had the bibimbap and I have not had a bibimbap this good even, in S Korea! I highly recommend the dolsot Bibimbap here, very tasty.... More

We've been to Korea and were amazed by every single meal we had there, and I must say Sna Kil is the best Korean restaurant in town. It's in Gracia, 2 min walk from Joanic Underground Station. The veggies always taste fresh and crunchy and everything is tasty, from the Pan Chan (starters) to their Bibimbap. My fav is their... More

The restaurant is in the periphery of the city and our cab driver was not familiar with the area. He had to program the address into his GPS to find it. My family live in NYC so we are accustomed to eating authentic Korean food. We had our fill of tapas during our vacation and craved Korean food. We found... More

I ordered rice noodle and my partner seafood tofu soup with rice. The rice noodle was tasty but the tofu soup was rather bland (a bit more salt can make a significant difference!). Both were prepared with too much oil - I could see so much oil residue on my noodle plate after. I'd say the taste was quite original... More

Staying in Gracia

Neighbourhood Profile
Gracia literally stands out from the pack. It used to be an independent town until late into the 19th century. Though it’s just a short commute away from the centre, a visit here feels like you’re in a whole different city. The bohemian vibe has drawn many international artists to this area, resulting in a wide selection of galleries, live music and artsy boutique stores. The nightlife is centered around the vibrant Gracia’s plaças, where young and old gather to enjoy a drink outside. Carrer de Verdi, its main street, offers affordable restaurants and a movie theatre that screens new as well as classic films in their original language. However Gracia's greatest treasure lies just up the hill at Guell Park, where Antoni Gaudi's vibrant and revolutionary art sculptures stand atop unequaled views of Barcelona.
