Our last day in Barcelona, a tour guide had recommended Gavinet for tapas and wine. Wandered around until we found it, but they were welcoming even though we were a bit early for dinner service. They insisted we sit down and brought us drinks until...More

Wow! Thank you Gavinet for one of the best meals I have had in a long time. This place is tucked away (thank god for goggle maps) but close to the San Maria Church, so glad we made the effort to find it. We arrived...More

I found this little restaurant thanks to an app called "spotted by locals". Although not easy to find, we were able to sit outside in a quiet cobblestone street, and enjoyed tapas and good wine. Service was very good also. We enjoyed this restaurant.

We were recommended this restaurant after completing a tour, and after seeing favourable reviews on Trip Advisor. However, the selection of Tapas was limited, and what arrived was fairly average food. Certainly okay and filled us up at lunch, but not as exceptional as we...More

Quaint set out, not modern, trendy as suggested by other reviews. Fabulous tapas, recommend the Russian salad and meatballs amongst others. Reasonably priced with welcoming service, will definitely be returning...

El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
places that live and breathe such exciting energy
regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants
