Quality and atmosphere for a good price

La Crema Canela

Crema Canela, a small and pretty little restaurant located at Plaza Real certainly is one of our favourites. The menu doesn't have a very wide choice - about 15 main courses - but each and every dish is truly delicious. And we can tell as we have already tried most of them. We suggest the 'Duck breast with strawberries' or the 'Tagliatelli with entrecôte, sweet pepper and a dressing of sun dried tomatoes'. Besides the main dishes there are several starters, salads and desserts. The prices are really good for the high level of quality that is being served. For a main course or a salad you pay around 8 to 10 Euro. The wines are good and definitely have a good pric/quality level. The restaurant opens evenings at 8 pm, but you better be there on time, because it's usually quite busy.

In Allium you can enjoy the real Catalan kitchen. The small, smoke free restaurant is situated in the middle of Barrio Gótico, but inside it's an oasis of relaxation. There's an offer of tapas quite different from most restaurants in both variation and quality. We recommend meat eaters to try the 'Surtido de embutidos Catalanes', and vegetarians can pick from a variety of salads. You can choose from around 10 different starters and the same number of main dishes. We already tried the 'Bacalao confitado' which we certainly suggest if you like fish. The restaurant is opened every day from 8 am to 11 pm.
