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

Description
The restaurant has the appearance of a French bistro, the ambience and decoration are part of its charm, but above all, what makes it special and what explains the resounding success is that it is an Argentine restaurant in Barcelona, that offers quality –and price, and it has been doing that for 20 years. We offer an extensive menu with meats imported from Argentina, famous for its cut, taste and quality; handmade pastas; pizzas and grilled cheeses (like the famous provolone) salads, homemade desserts and a variety of vegetarian dishes. At noon, from Tuesday to Friday, we offer a menu of Mediterranean fusion cuisine. Drinks are also included. Also we offer four types of steak daily menu. The restaurant has a two private rooms for groups, located on the main floor for capacity between 9 and 25 people. In the cellar, known as "El Foro Club", with capacity for up to 80 people sitting and 120 standing.
