If you're in Barcelona, do yourself a favour and visit Els Barrils!! What an evening, what a meal and what service. The house wine, cloudy white, unbelievable quality and a whole 8 Euro a bottle. Salted cod salad was something else, veal sirloin epic. Enjoy....More

We came across this restaurant in the way back to our hotel. My fish was delicious, simply grilled and fresh. The mixed shared starter platter was fine. This is simple cooking in a friendly environment, no fancy, unnecessary stuff!

Good quality product plus a good price. Owners are from Galicia and they offer top quality product from that region of Spain. Meat is a must plus the fish.

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
