El Trapío is a beautiful restaurant located in a refurbished mansion in a quiet residential neighborhood. The garden is simply beautiful and indoors is just as nice. The food is excellent and the staff is friendly and easy going. I particularly like this restaurant because the noise level is low. I recommend making a reservation.

Nice and cozy restaurant in the hills in the upper part of Barcelona. We had tuna salad and tuna tartar and both dishes were delicous and fresh. The ambient is right for both business dinners or romantic dates, I even saw families having a good time. Perfect!

Went there with a couple of customers and I have to say that I really enjoyed. Food is very correct and the outside patio is amazing.

Went to El Trapio yesterday night and I was amazed. It's situated in a modernist villa and has a very nice backyard where you can also sit for lunch and dinner. The dishes are elaborate, with very high quality products, but a very fair price. They have some great, less known wines. Ask for their reccomendation! Going back soon!

It is located in a residential and quite neighbourhood at night, but it is an incredible well kept secret in Barcelona! The inside has a classic decoration and the outside terrace (great for summer time or lunch time) is full of green and very cozy. The food, oh well, please go and try. Absolutely everything, from appetizers, to starters, to... More

Nice ambience with a big inner covered patio very ideal for groups. A very good point is that the room is ver well conditioned to decrease the noise that sure come from big groups. Food is very correct but do not expect to go there for a foodie experience. Price is balanced. Recommendable for group meals. To be honest I... More

We were lucky, this restaurant was open and close to the hotel. Very quiet area, we were really wondering whether the restaurant was still accepting customers after 22.45. They were. Good surprise. Nice place, good service, in French for French-speakers (even the cards/menu), and good food. Quite some choice for wines, including some that you can order just for 1... More
