El 68 is a stylish gastrobar with a wonderful atmosphere on a corner of Milà i Fontanals, very close to Travessera de Gràcia. It’s a compact-sized restaurant with a few tables, enormous windows and a unique sense of decoration that really enhances your dining experience.

We went on a Wednesday night to enjoy some dinner and the results went beyond our expectations.

Our opinions
Eeva – “We are really lucky to have this amazing restaurant just around the corner. This restaurant is definitely one of the best restaurants we’ve tried in Barcelona. It’s such a cosy place with welcoming atmosphere. Service was excellent and well of course, the food was amazing. Flavours are definitely more important than the presentation in my opinion, but I have to say that in el 68 the way the food was presented was very beautiful as well. All the dishes had rich flavours and every bite was a pleasure. I loved the combination of spicy hot sauce and salmon “causa” and I think that the potatoes with the romesco sauce are the best I’ve tried so far in Barcelona. The potatoes were perfectly cooked and the sauce was scrumptious! Amazing experience, we will definitely go back there many times.”

Rafa – “I don’t have many words to describe how good this restaurant is. Every dish was extraordinary and it’s impossible to choose my favourite, the flavours were so special that they’re now etched into my mind and I cannot wait to go back and eat there again. The service and atmosphere were incredible as well. One of my favourite dining experiences in all of Barcelona”

Final Ratings
Eeva – 9.4 / Rafa – 9.6

Consensus: 9.5 (Best of Barcelona)
