The Barri Gotic, its Catalan name (Gothic Quarter), is no doubt the true heart of the city. In its labyrinth of winding streets and asymmetric squares which goes from the famous Las Ramblas to the sea at ‘Drassanes’ you can find some really good Tapas places and restaurants.. here our recommendations: 4_gats_barcelona
ELS QUATRE GATS
Famous for being one of Picasso’s old watering holes, Els Quatre Gats is a classic that still enjoys the patronage of upper class Barcelona society. Good quality food served by very formal waiting staff in a charming venue, but the history of the place is what sets it apart.
Price: Expensive
Address: Calle Montsió 3 bis (Metro L1- L3, Catalunya)
Telephone: +34 93 302 41 40
VILDSVIN L’ANTIGA TAVERNA
Elegant restaurant with a marble and polished wood interior. A good option for those who prefer international food. Oysters are the house speciality.
Price: Medium / Expensive
Address: Calle Ferran 38 (Metro L3, Liceu)
Telephone: +34 93 317 94 07
plaza_reial_barcelona
LES QUINZE NITS 
Large restaurant, with terrace, serving good quality modern mediterranean food at reasonable prices in the centre of the Barrio Gótico. It is not possible to book a table and, in the evening, long queues often form up outside the restaurant.
Price: Medium
Address: Plaça Reial 6 (Metro L3, Liceu)
Telephone: +34 93 317 30 75
los_caracoles_barcelona
LOS CARACOLES
Voluminous restaurant whose name means “snails” in Spanish. Unsurprisingly, snails are a speciality, but so also is spit-roasted chicken, slowly turning on the grills in front of you. There is also a full menu of Catalan and Spanish dishes. The Plaza Reial apartments are in the same building as Los Caracoles.
Price: Medium
Address: Calle Escudellers 14 (Metro L3, Liceu)
Telephone: 93 302 31 85
Website: Los Caracoles

Bar Polaroid Barcelona

The 80s is a decade that lot of people will never overcome; it is a magic period where every thing was wonderful and trendy, people still remember how awesome it was and that is totally understandable. Eighties were the best decade for entertainment: music, movies, series... Who does not remember songs like Billie Jean, Girls Just Want to Have Fun? Even in Spanish songs like Agüita Amarilla and Devuelveme a mi Chica? … sincerely it is simple irresistible.

Bar Polaroid

Do you feel the same way, are you still missing the 80s? Do you want to know a place totally 80s?  If the answer is yes, Polaroid Bar in Barcelona is the perfect place for you.

El Chapulin in PolaroidPolaroid is a Venezuelan bar located in Gotic neighborhood in Carrer dels Còdols 29, it is a small bar with 80s theme decoration: VHS tapes, E.T with its bike, Pac Man, posters of representative films of the time as Top Gun, Ghostbusters and NeverEnding Story and display cases with items representing the 80s as Chespirito (famous mexican actor, writer and comedian), Care Bears, Alf, the Garbage and Pac Man.

The bar has a cool and relax atmosphere, the drinks are good and cheap, especially if you ask for the 1 € caña (small beer) or for the mohitos. The music is excellent, really worth spending a whole night listening to all the 80s classics, that music that brings to your mind the best times of your live.

Xampanyeria “Can Paixano” – a MUST when in Barcelona

Ok guys, you already know about my favourite pizza place in Barcelona.. now it’s time to have some drinks in one of the amazing bars in BARcelona!! What do you think about self-made cava (Catalonians champagne) and some chorizo, Manchego cheese and spanish sausages. It’s actually always the same when I tell people to go there and give them the direction. When I meet them again, I always hear.. Can paixano “Yeah and then we walked down to the port, into Carrer de la Reina Cristina.. we didn’t see anything which looked liked that place u were talking about.. just some random shops with watches and stuff.. and THEN we looked to the left.. a bar, completely packed, ham was hanging on the ceiling, we smelled the sandwiches already outside on the street and the glasses of cava, standing on the bar, seemed like calling us” Honestly.. it’s always something like that. well. let’s get a bit more into the details. The Xampanyeria Bar Barcelona was founded in 1969.. so I already heard my uncle talking about his visit there in 1985. He was extremely excited when I told him that I go there every week now since I live here in Barcelona. Can Paixano has still the atmosphere of a traditional sailors tavern. You won’t find any seats.. no.. everybody is standing, handing glasses of cava over heads to friends and eating these amazing bocadillos and tapas they are offering there. You are not getting “any” cava there.. the 4 kinds offered are self-made and very very tasty. I do prefer the Rosat, which costs just 0.95 € a glass (the “most expensive” is 1.45 €, I think). They never serve you the first glass of cava there unless you also order something to eat (just for the first glass) - which is good, because everybody should try the bocadillos (spanish for “sandwiches”) they serve there. You can choose between hot (melted cheese and bacon, chorizo etc.) and cold ones (ham, salmon, cheese etc.) and as well plates with manchego cheese, ham or pieces of hot Spanish sausages. Also the food is really cheap – I love the bocadillo with chorizo and it’s just 1.80 €. When you go there before 5pm they also serve bottles, which start at 4.60 €. You will also find a little shop at the back of the bar, where you can buy bottles to take home (bottles start at 2.30 €) It’s always pretty packed in this bar in Barcelona ..but don’t get scared..haha..you will find Spanish and catalan people drinking their cava next to Barcelona Erasmus students and people from all over the world – it’s a really nice atmosphere there and you always meet new people. So guys, what are you waiting for? Go there, have some glasses and after that you can hang out a bit under the palmtrees at the amazing port of Barcelona – that’s how we do it here! The best is to go there at 8ish for a little pregame before partying, because they close at 10.30pm. Here is the complete address: Can Paixano Carrer de la Reina Cristina 7 08003 Barcelona Metro: Barceloneta (Line 4)
