The food was pretty good, prices were moderate to low. For beer drinkers from North America and Germany, the "pitcher" is just a pint glass. The service is not proactive, but if you call out to them they do take care of you in a...More

Woeful! A disgrace. The worse customer service in a very long time. So so rude. The waiter was disinterested, arrogant, simply lacking in even the bare minimum in customer service skills. Yes, Spanish men can be rude and arrogant, generally speaking that is, but this...More

El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this
gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an
excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic
spots in the entire city. A sense of humble
authenticity protrudes from the many independent
record stores, second hand shops, and student bars
that seem to light up the streets day and night. The
rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day
