El Born restaurants is a selection of my favorite places in this beautiful & cozy neighborhood  and  defiantly my favorite one, and a place that deserves a few visits during your time in Barcelona, I never get tired of El Born. It is between Via Laietana and Barceloneta, Born has grown into one of the most modern parts of the city,

      EL BORN is one of the most beautiful parts off Barcelona, with its charming restaurants, cozy shops off the old town, a place to get lost is between Via Laietana and BarcelonetaBorn has grown into one of the most modern parts of the city.

      During the day the coffes are packed and at night people go to Passeig de Born, also on Passeig de Born is said to be located the best pizza place in Barcelona; and by € 1.50 lot you can not complain!

      However, Born is not only nightlife; there are also a lot of culture to see. On the Street Montcada, in the ancient medieval street, the Picasso Museum and the Textile Museum, which in turn has a small cafe with terrace are located. Also in this neighborhood there is the most beautiful church , Santa Maria del Mar and maybe have the chance to witness a wedding!

      Today, it attracts people to visit the Born by the number of shops, including amazing boutiques and shoe stores, great for finding a dream piece. Some of the most modern stores such as Brazilian company Colcci , Adolfo Dominguez, Hugo Boss, La comercial, have chosen Born as their home.

        My recommendations are;



#Luis de Piados 2   A French corner at the charming Born, where lovers of good Wine & Cheese will be delight.Deco and furniture are just gorgeous, and their terrace in a sunny day a real pleasure. 



 #Paseo de Picasso 32   It is defiantly one of my top 5 restaurants in town. I highly recommend their lunch menu for only 16€ to try this amazing combination of Japanese and Brazilian cosine, do not leave without trying the cheesecake, this is absolutely mandatory. 



#Calle rec 31   If i feel like tapas at El Born, Bormuth is defiantly one of my options, i´ve been many times and it has never been dissapointed.Price is very reasonable and their tapas are really good, I love, cazuelitas, calamares a la andaluza, ensalada de tomate y atun….

#Calle comercial 7  If you love fish and seafood and you are in a budget, this place is right for you.It is also a fun way to order, as it is like a market where you choose what you want to eat and they make if for you, they have a few restaurants and they are always very busy, Deep fried fish,  Clams and Mussels are always on my table.



#Calle carders 12    I discovered this place by chance, as i passed by many times and never got my attention, I was wrong  as the place is spectacular and I am a regular now.A beautiful courtyard with sublime food where ordering several dishes is also the best way to enjoy your meal, as the most of the places in this area, look for it and try it, you will probably go back.  


 #Esparteria 9    It was recommended by my guest Stephanie.An old tavern that seems from another century and serves Catalan tapas between old stone walls and ancient jars. 


#Francesc cambo 16   An exquisite Mediterranean menu of meat, fish and fresh vegetables direct from the market. Their cold tapas at the bar are tremendous and their terrace is open all year long, but the place inside is just cozy and make you feel like you never want to leave, is another alive place with soul. Do not miss out the ceiling of the market, is a piece of art
