MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View
Sandwiched among a throng of attention-seeking storefronts, mighty little Las Ramblas is easy to spot—just look for the crowd of happy, munching faces. The scene spills out onto the sidewalk when the weather allows. Named for Barcelona's historic commercial thoroughfare, Las Ramblas is a tapas treat. A copper-plated bar and collection of tiny tables provide a perch for snacking on an array of earnestly prepared items. Check out the wall-mounted blackboard for especiales. Bring friends (it's that kind of place) to fully explore the menu, which serves up delights such as succulent head-on prawns roasted in a terra-cotta dish and sauced with cava vinegar, ginger and basil; or béchamel creamed spinach topped by a molten cap of Mahón cheese.
