Delicious meal. My wife had the pork shoulder dinner, which wasn't the "fight the bone" experience (fortunately), but was great tasty, pork slices. I had the grilled octopus & grilled razor clams, both very good & flavorful. We also shared the padron peppers--excellent if you...More

The restaurant is slightly removed from the hustle and bustle of Barri Gotic, but well worth a pleasant stroll through the backstreets to enjoy a meal. We booked as a group through bcnrestaurants and could not have been more pleased with the result. The staff...More

Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this
picturesque neighbourhood is the very heart of
Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days
under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War
with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and
authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be
thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas
brought to life by the many small bars and local
