Fodor's Expert Review L'Olivé

$$ Eixample Spanish

Streamlined but traditional Catalan cooking means this busy and attractive spot is always packed. The crowd may be boisterous, but the dining room is seriously elegant, with crisp white tablecloths, leather chairs, and a loftlike wall of windows. Excellent hearty food, smart service, and some of the best pa amb tomàquet in town will have you squeezing in for a table.
