A very long waiting time. We were ignored several times and they forgot our orders while serving locals who arrive long after us. The food was good but not tourist friendly!

We've fallen in love with La Buena Vida! Very cozy interior and tasty food. There is both European and national Spanish dishes. Paella stole my heart )) We also took salad with chiсken and didn't regret. And what we really liked - big portions.

The food at this restaurant was some of the best we have eaten in Barcelona. Of particular note is the Salad with chicken. It was delicious, and the fries are fresh cut, not the frozen pre-fried kind. It is true that the staff are a...More

The futuristic Agbar Tower stands out from Barcelona's
skyline in Poblenou. It is no coincidence then that
this area of town is the newly crowned technological
park of the city, its own mini Silicon Valley
containing a tech incubator (Barcelona Activa) as well
as a host of local and international high tech
companies. To accommodate the onrush of new residents
and workers, the area of Poblenou has seen a surge of
