Journalists, students, and artists haunt this romantic little spot near the MACBA (contemporary art museum), across the street from Barcelona's journalism school, and around the block from the former offices of Barcelona's La Vanguardia daily newspaper. Estevet and family are charming, and the carefully elaborated Catalan cuisine sings, especially at these prices. Try the asparagus cooked over coals, the chopitos gaditanos (deep-fried baby octopus), or the magret de pato (duck breast). The house wine is inexpensive, light, and perfectly drinkable.

We were a little lost as to what to have for dinner, since we are new to Barcelona, short on money, but still looking for good Catalan food. We saw this place on fodors.com and it didn't disappoint. The price was very affordable, and the presentation was impressive. Recommended to anyone wanting good Catalan food.

If you like a restaurant with an eclectic but romantic atmosphere; this is the place to go to. Easy to find from Gran Via and just in the beginning of Raval this is a great find for great taste and little money. The food is great and service is excellent and professional! Main courses are available between EUR 6 and EUR 17. Try the Esparrago verde with a great sauce as an appetizer or the Butifarra artesana as main course.
