Elisabets Bar-Restaurant, Barcelona

Elisabets Bar-Restaurant, Barcelona
Carrer d'Elisabets, 2, 08001 Barcelona, Spain
Tel: +34 933 17 58 26

Elisabets is a traditional bar restaurant that is full of authenticity that is set in the middle of the trendy and grungy El Raval area.  The bar-Restaurant has shelves and shelves of antique radios and an old racing bike casually hung on the wall, this gives Elisabets a curiosity shop air.  

The menu del dia, however, is Elisabets’ real forte, especially for those who would like to try a little more traditional Catalan food but have no idea where to start.  This is a set menu that they have every lunchtime for €13.50 but we settled for the tapas menu which is all in Spanish but the staff are very helpful in translating and offering suggestions.  You have to try the patatas con bolonesa “rabiatta”  (chunky fried potato wedges with bolognese meat sauce)  – only € 3.10, and almost a meal in its own right.  This has a certain (very good) reputation among locals.

This is a little gem – get there early as it fills up quickly every lunchtime and evening for customers hungry for home-cooked, authentic and local food.  The prices are respectable and are extremely competitive. 

If you love food and want to experience local, home-cooked food that is extremely delicious and authentic you have to visit Elisabets in Barcelona.  It is a must – definitely the BEST Tapas we tasted in Barcelona.

What we ordered:
We ordered a selection of tapas which included;


Patatas con bolonesa “rabiatta” Tomato Bread, Iberico Ham & Calamari 

Garlic Prawns


Every single dish was absolutely delicious, authentic and value for money.  We washed down this amazing meal with a litre jug of beer for €4.55.
