€€ – Spanish
Les Quinze Nits (The 15 nights) …. There is no other way to get in then join the queue.
Was in Barcelona the first time 1997 – and the queue was there … both for lunch and dinner. And it’s still there!!! Every time I been to Barcelona I have been in the dinner queue. They have outside tables, of course they goes first.
Today they have a website, but that took time – but still no pre-booking – the queues are their trademark. Since they expanded and made the second floor into dinning room too – the place is just swallowing up the queue.
Buzzing, electric and not really a typical tourist trap – mostly Spanish guests. Food is fresh and local with a twist. Have never tried their Paella, that seems to be their signature dish. Their salads are delicious fresh, lamb, meats, chicken and fish – well cooked and tasty. Cheap and chic, will never win a Michelin star. Don’t think they really cares with queues like theirs.
Very enjoyable – both surroundings and the food. Service very quick, friendly and they really look after you even if they have quite a few tables, each waiter. An evening here with 3 courses and wine doesn’t empty the bank account neither plus the Sangria is very good.
Placa Reial – is just off the La Ramblas – opsite the market more or less. A beautiful enclosed square.
This is a MUST when visiting Barcelona, so I tell you to join the queue too. *smile
Another of my Barcelona favorite waterholes are “Agua” – but it will get its own space.
