Set on the edge of an enchanting square in El Poblenou and surrounded by trees so ancient their roots burst through the tarmac, Els Pescadors is a traditional neighbourhood restaurant that attracts patrons from across the city. The building is 100 years old and it looks it – expect dark wood panelling, marble table tops and a sideboard mounted by a leg of serrano ham. At the weekend, families pile in for long lunches of fresh fish and rice dishes washed down with plenty dry white wine – and end up staying all afternoon.

Need to Book
Make sure you request a table in the front room by the entrance (the one at the back is modern and not as appealing).
