El Berro Review

Why did we choose El Berro for our Barcelona Gay Escape? There are lots of restaurants and bars in the gay district of Barcelona (Eixample) but El Berro stands out for two simple reasons. The first reason is because it’s popular. Popular doesn’t always mean good but it’s often an indication that there’s something worth going for.

The second reason is because there is something worth going for. Even better, there are lots of reasons worth going for. That’s why the restaurant is always busy. Luckily, however, the numbers don’t affect the service (that really can’t be said for every restaurant in Spain!).

The service then is one of the reasons El Berro stands out from other restaurants in the area (and even Barcelona as a whole). What’s the main reason to go to a restaurant? Food, of course, and the food is delicious. They have a varied menu to suit all tastes, from authentic Spanish to the comfort foods we all know and love such as steak and hamburgers. With our Barcelona Gay Escape, it gets even better: two menu del dia (menu of the day) for €20!

The location is another big reason. It’s not just in the famous gay neighbourhood of Eixample, it is very central within the neighbourhood as well. You’re a matter of minutes from lots of famous gay bars and clubs (all in our guide). It’s friendly. Very friendly. Like its surrounding area, you can just be yourself! Finally, these sorts of qualities usually demand high prices too. The prices are very reasonable, however. What more could you ask for?
