“Lively but touristic place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2014 via mobile

If you are looking for some bars and fun, especially in high season, this is the place to be. It is quite touristic though, so dont expect low prices or authentic stuff here... My tip would be to go to Cafe Royale where there is always live music, just around the corner...

“Street Vendors”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2014

Lots of restaurants lined the plaza and it seemed like a nice place to eat. While I was there I saw lots of street vendors selling things.

“Very good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2014

Nice place in Las Rambla! Nice small restaurants with good dishes, and a small restaurant, can not remember the name(on the right side when come from Las Rambla) with homemade soup! The day menu is 7-8 euro. Clean kitchen, nice staff and good prices.

“A pleasant break from La Rambla”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 December 2013

We stumbled upon this beautiful plaza one early morning while walking on La Rambla. It was quiet and there were only a few other tourists there and had a very nice feel to it. It's truly lovely with a fountain in the centre, the palm trees all around, beautiful architecture, and lots of restaurants/cafes to sit it. We had a very simple but delicious breakfast in one of those cafes and just took in the atmosphere. And even though it was mid November the weather was sunny and comfortable.
