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.
