“Gem of a patisserie”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014

Bubo is Born's gem and is a must-visit !!!
The tapas bar is located directly opposite the Basilica of Santa Maria del Mar and has both indoor and outdoor seating(facing the Basilica!). The patisserie is round the corner and since they have limited seating, you can order your cake/pastry at the patisserie and they will bring it to your table at the tapas bar.
My husband and I visited Bubo on 25th July and were so impressed we came back for breakfast on 27th. The food and service was excellent both times.
On 25th, we ordered the Dark Chocolate Sneken (with Raspberries-Raisin) and Xabina (Olive oil cake with spices, praline, vanilla cake, chocolate mousse). Both the desserts were outstanding.
Our bill came to 11.40 with 3 coffees included.
On 29th, we ordered the Global Breakfast, Spanish omelette, Sacher De Gerds pastry and 3 coffees. Our bill - 20 euros only!
The cakes are priced 4.40 and the croissants 1.80 euros. Absolute value for money!

“Best Chocolate Cake in the World indeed!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014

As the title depicted. Bubo really lives up to its reputation of its award-winning chocolate cake! Try the "Best Chocolate Cake in the World 2005" and bewildered!

“Truffle macarons!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014

Wonderful, incredible, fantastic...
Bubo follows the traditions of best french confectioners introducing his own elements. If you want to have coffee with a sweet masterpiece, go to Bubo. There you find some well-known desserts as "Saint-Honoré", new Bubo's creations, series of chocolates and macarons.
I am fond of truffle macarons and highly recommend it if you enjoy truffle taste and smell. Awesome! I saw these macarons only here and would like to find it somewhere else.

“Don't sit down if you aren't going to eat!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014 via mobile

When staying in El Born for the weekend, we came across Bubo Bar and decided to have a drink. Having been ok'd to take one of the vacant tables and ordered and received our drinks a waiter came over and asked what we wanted to eat. On indicating we were just going to stick with our drink we were told we could not sit at a table outside and would have to move, I offered to leave but would was then told we would have to pay for the untouched drinks. To be honest the red wine could have stripped paint so there was little to be lost! Go to Casa Delfin (2 min walk away) less touristy, great service an fabulous food!

“Pleasant in good weather”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014 via mobile

Had a late dinner ar Bubo after a long day of walking. Despite it being more of a cafe and breafast place, turned out to be a good dinner option. Location just by Santa Maria del Mar cannot be faulted and outdoor seating is very pleasant. Limited food and drink options (nice prawns, good options in Cocas (pizza type slices). Very friendly and personable service. Overall, won't seek out the place for meals but if you are nearby and out of options, a perfectly adequate meal option if you can sit ourside.
