My friend and I had been wandering around Barcelona all day, and were totally famished by the time we arrived at the taverna after 10pm. It took us a little while to find this place, but I'm glad we kept searching.
When we arrived, this place was bustling and almost full. We were immediately asked if we wanted some wine and were directed to the self-service tasting barrels. We tried the 4 different wines there, and that took the edge off the hunger.
We were immediately seated afterwards, and began perusing the menu. Even though this is billed as "medieval" food, there were plenty of options for this pesco-vegetarian. My friend and I ordered the following:
1 jarra vino pequeno -- small jug of wine
2 pan payes con tomate -- bread with tomato rubbed on it
1 ensalada varias -- salted cod over potatoes
1 sardinas o boquerones -- fried sardines
1 ensalada verde -- green salad
1 esparrago de calahorra -- white regional asparagus
2 budins de la casa -- almond cake desserts
I wouldn't say the food was amazing, but it was really good, simple and well done, and the dessert, served with a digestif, really rounded out the meal. The plates were just the right size to split between two (or more) people, which allowed us to try more things and gave us a good sense of the different flavors. The total bill was 35 euros, which absolutely floored us! What an incredible price!
