With 5 people who are Spanish and American and know Spanish food well - this place is completely underwhelming. The basics like croquettas and rice dishes were of poor quality. Just nearby there are a ton of wonderful local restaurants with excellent food and service for similar prices. We found Via Granados nearby that was far superior and many others... More

This place gave us a very positive surprise on a weekend, when most restaurants do not offer the set menu they have during the week. We had an excelent meal at a most than reasonable price. No doubt, the quality price ratio is very high.

I booked through The Fork with a 50% discount. The chef's suggestions promoted on The Fork website were not available at the restaurant and the alternative choices we were offered were not really comparable. We ordered one starter each: marinated salmon + avocado, pasta philo + tomatoes + camembert. They were both very tasty; perhaps there was a bit too... More

Passing by on a Saturday night looking for somewhere to eat and we stumbled upon this restaurant. Friendly waitress welcomed us in. They have a set menu for €15 but we went for just a main course as we weren't too hungry. I had the Argentinean steak which came with roast vegetables and my other half had the roast chicken....

Had the menu of the day, reasonably priced at around 15 euros per person. The food was ok - a decent lunchtime meal if you're passing - . Not worth a trip out of your way though.

Popped in for quick dinner, thought the menu looked nice. Dinner was served so quickly after we ordered it was apparent it must have been microwaved. Food was not warmed through. Very disappointing. Should have ordered room service!

I skipped there top sea food option as i opted for some grill with some rice as my friend went for full blast Spanish paella.. The desert Lemon ice drink should be a must for you please.. super...

Lunch menu 12 euro! 3 courses bread, water nd wine included! Delicious!!! All fresh amd local! Just wonderful! Some courses will have a surcharge of a couple of euros, but well worth it! We went twice and had a huge lunch!

This is a small but well presented restaurant in a Barcelona side street with a very attractive bar area. The menu was interesting and varied and the service very attentive. The dishes we chose were beautifully presented, very fresh and excellent quality. The wine list was very good value, from which we chose the "recommended" sparkling wine which was very... More

The Restaurant Canela at Carrer Aribau 16, Barcelona, is located very close to the University of Barcelona in the Eixample district (just off the Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes). It is a small but excellent venue that offers great Catalan food for an excellent price, especially the "menú del dia". Highly Recommended

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
Eixample
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 exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
