I went to this little place twice in three days in November, it was so good. Just went last Friday also for my birthday meal as it was so great. Wonderful calçots, amazing lamb chops, wonderful wine. Really nice guys. Don't all speak English but it all works. Close to Plaça de Sants Metro so not city centre but well... More

Can Manel is a great neighbourhood grill house and is perfect for trying local specialties where the locals eat them. We've been there a few times now and it's a great introduction to Catalan food. Their calcots are amazing and lots of fun to eat with friends, especially if they've never had them before. It's very interactive and of course,... More

We came because it was one of the few restaurants in the area that served calcots (grilled spring onions served with a tomato based sauce), which we heard about from some local friends. We came around lunch time, and although we came a little before opening time, the waiter greeted us cheerfully, showed us to the table, and surprised us... More

The biggest and best cooked sirloin steaks - one of the easiest things to get wrong - made the evening. We were mooching round the local area looking for a decent bar and stumbled across Can Manel. Didn't look much from the outside and its dark interior decor meant it didn't look a great deal better inside, but looks proved... More

If you are one of those persons looking for ¨Not tourist places¨ (rare in the center but with a bit of investigation you can find it within 10-15 minutes of metro from there) this could be for you. The decoracion in few words, wood colors, big wine barels, mosaic windows, a bit of a bodega to it. They specialise in... More
