You have got to eat something at les quince nits. Everything they say about this restaurant is true: there's always a long long queue (we once waited 1,5 hour), the food and the atmosphere are worth waiting for, the food is absolutely delicious and very cheap. And the atmosphere is great.
Favorite Dish: A starter with a lot of different things, I forgot the name
And duck with apples:mmmmm
And roasted lamb:mmmmmm
And Sangre de Toro wine (bulls blood, hihi) : mmmmmmm
The restaurant is on located on Placa Reial. We went here after after reading recomendations on VT and weren't dissapointed. We arived at 9.45pm and queued for 30 minutes. It was definately worth the wait. My starter (veal carpachio) was excelent. I had duck with apple compote for my main course which was very nice but didn't come with any veg or rice. I guess their more bothered with quality than quantity. Desert was good too. I strongly recomend this restaurant.
WE FOUND THIS BY CHANCE. ONE OF THE FEW PLACES IN BARCA WITH MENU IN ENGLISH.GOT THERE ABOUT 9PM ON A SAT IN JAN.GOT A TABLE NO PROBLEM ,LOOKED OUT OF WINDOW AT 9.30PM TO A SEE AHUGE QUE TO GET IN.WE FOUND THE FOOD GOOD AND VERY GOOD VALUE .A 3COURSE MEAL FOR 4 AND 3 BOTTLES OF GOOD WINE FOR 85 EUROS! WHY CANT OTHER PLACES DO IT LIKE THIS?
Favorite Dish: CHICKEN STUFFED WITH HAM WAS GOOD ,SOME MAIN CORSES DONT COME WITH VEG OR RICE AND SOME DO.THE HOMADE CARAMEL ICE CREAM WAS LOVELY.
For many of you savvy VT travelers, the sight of an enormous line outside of a restaurant in a touristy part of town might discourage you. I had the same thought, but I was with others who really wanted to give it a try, so we decided to jump in line early and try it out. The place opens at 8:30pm and they don't take reservations, so your best bet is to get here by around 8. The food and service were both excellent and the prices were very reasonable.
Favorite Dish: The desserts tasted as good as they looked.
If you go to Placa Reial and see the big line going through it, it's the people queuing up to get to the restaurant, which has 3 floors and tables outside. It's still not enough for all the people who want to eat here.
Favorite Dish: Great variety of starters, fish and meat dishes. Codfish with beans is delicious and as for desserts...... I would eat them all but one of the best choices will for sure be Crema Catalana with almond ice-cream and chocolate syrup. Yummy... :-)))
This restaurant is a rather good option to try typical catalonian food in a nice environment.
I went there for lunch, and seated at the terrace they have in an alley at one side of the Placa Reial. They have room inside and upstairs too, but I found it nicer to seat outside and watch the people go by...
Most entrees were about 4 euros, and main dishes, about 6 euros.
Favorite Dish: Escalivada amb formatge fos i torradets: 3,81 euros
Botifarra amb mongetes saltades: 4,41 euros

A nice, varied menu (something for everyone) on a beautiful square with outdoor tables. Choose here rather than the ferociously popular (and queued!) Les Quinze Nits next door - you won't regret it. This place has nicer food for only a little more money and it's got a really interesting history. Plus you can laugh at the people queueing for Nits as you eat. Nice wine too :)
Favorite Dish: The goat's cheese starter... just a great salad!
There are hundreds of bars and restaurants in Barcelona, catering for all budgets. For lunch you should check out the menu del-dia’s (menu of the day), available in most restaurants and usually priced around 1000-1500ptas for a 3-course meal with wine. One of my favourite places to eat is Les Quinze Nits located in Placa Reial. The food is excellent and very reasonably priced, around (£10-15) a head, including wine. It is worth remembering that restaurants in Spain don’t usually open until 9pm in the evening.
There are long queues everyday, you should go a little bit early (before 9pm) so that not to wait too much.
Favorite Dish: Salad, mixed of French fris and spicy sausages.
No reservation possible. Go there around 8 and stay in line (don't be scared if there are more then 50 people standing in front of you, it's worth it...)
Favorite Dish: Just make your choice, it's really excellent.
