    Picasso and Miró used to go there when they were young and they payed the owner with their paintings. So you can eat while admiring Picasso and Miró original art. It's a must if you go to Bercelona.

    Go here for lunch and enjoy the menu del dia. Not just incredible Catalan food, but also a very unique atmosphere. Best value for money restaurant I found in BCN.

    The food is delicious tough its for a bite) Beautiful cafe with artistic interiors, though the staff think that if you work in some legendary places, you don't have to work well.

    Great place: there's a very good atmosphere and drinks are fantastic. But pay attention to prices! One decanter of sangria for 25€ it's a little bit expensive for every place!!!

    Inaugurated in 1897,Pere Romeu chose for an interior of refined artistic details. Picasso exhibitioned for the first time in 1899, and frequented by Gaudi. Well selected and inexpensive menu.

    This is a great place to break bread and wine with your friends or loved ones. Their food does not disappoint. If you want your meat medium rare make sure to emphasize it. they cook more well done.

    Great hidden centenarian restaurant where Picasso used to hang. If you order the 3-course lunch (about E16), the drinks are unlimited (cava/vino). Friendly staff! Great atmosphere!

    Used to be a nice place and I see why Picasso used to hang out here but now it's always full with every passerby...Despite the good service, it's crowded and noisy so you won't really enjoy your drink

    If the restaurant is closed and you end up in the cafe, you can still ask for the restaurant menu. You have to ask and insist, otherwise you will end up eating the oil-saturated tapas crap.

    Onion soup was ok, lobster salad had nearly no lobster in it. The oven cooked fish tasted like microwaved. Pretty steep prices. Oh and there is also "out of tune" piano music. Enjoy.
