El Laurel is one of the "cheap eats" on Trip Advisor and we keep a list when visiting a city. El Laurel did not disappoint...a small 'hole in the wall' restaurant with big flavours. I had an interesting salad with purple endive, oranges, olives and dates wrapped in bacon--delicious! My husband had their good value 9.90E set menu with salad, 3 empanadas (of your choice) and a drink. The empanadas are delicious and the "colored" ones a delectable foodie treat. The restaurant is at the top edge of El Raval and the east side of Sant Antoni...very safe neighborhoods!

Empanadas are delicious and original, some of them never tried before, at €2,5 each. I didn't try another food.
Place is small, a little uncomfortable on crowded nights .

Found this place by accident while wandering around in the area. Stopped for empanadas, that other visitors have been so fond of. The older man who served us didn't care too much if we were there or not and empanadas weren't anything to die for. Wouldn't go back for a second taste.

The tittle speaks for itself. Their empanadas are just fabulous! There are many different kinds of them! And there are other types of Argentinian food if you don't like empanadas.
Also, the staff is very kind and friendly.
A must!

We stumbled upomn the Laurel by accident a year or two ago, but we now make a point of visiting every time we visit Barcelona. A slightly hipsterish ambience, possibly due to the proximity to the university, but a fabulous range of Argentinean wines and some really gorgeous empanadillas.
