Vacation apartments in Barcelona
Barcelona is one of the largest tourist destinations not only in Europe, but in the world. For a comfortable alternative to hotels, consider choosing short-term apartment rentals in Barcelona that constitute a successful and secure market in Europe.
Rental apartments in Barcelona cost less than hotel rooms of comparable sizes, and yet offer you a real home where you would love to come back after a day out in Barcelona.
You get all the advantages of independent living and working in a rental apartment: you may choose to cook in a fully-equipped kitchen, you may entertain guests in the living room, you have the privacy of your own bedroom. Would you have all that in a hotel? More and more travellers prefer to rent an apartment in Barcelona for these reasons.
If you frequently travel with family or friends, you know how difficult it may be to book adjacent spacious rooms in a hotel. 1-, 2- or 3-bedroom apartments in Barcelona are easy to find. What is more, you pay per apartment, not per guest, which allows you to cut rental costs considerably, and spend quality time together.
Barcelona is a city you would not want to leave and where you would love to come back, but if you are set on more exploring, we also offer apartment, cottage and villa short-term and long-term rentals all over Europe and North America!

Restaurants in Eixample


Carrer d'Enric Granados 147
Tel. 932 002 214
Bardot unpretentiously positions itself as a wine bar, where you can take a high chair seat by a wine barrel and enjoy a glass of tinto from their impressive wine cellar. Do not be fooled; there are tables with cozy chairs and couches hiding in the interior behind the bar! Bardot is a wonderful Catalan restaurant that could feed you as well as quench your thirst.

The menu is short but sweet, catering both to meat and fish lovers, listing typical salads and Spanish tapas, and many, many desserts - all cooked with a twist that you would be hard-pressed to identify but will enjoy putting in your mouth. The most impressive (and the most expensive) item on the savoury menu is ox served with foie gras and parmeggiano, prepared to your liking: Bardot does not overcook its meat, so if you want it al punto (medium-medium-rare), you will get it al punto, and not bien hecho (well done) or poco hecho (rare).

The best dessert in the house is tortilla fea de chocolate (quite literally "an ugly chocolate crepe") which tastes anything but ugly and is throughly recommended by every single member of the waiting staff. Another dessert to consider is crema de fresitas ("cream with tiny strawberries") which in reality is an excellent version of crema catalana (the Catalan take on creme brulee).

All in all, Bardot offers exceptional service and ambiance, and is a great choice is you want to impress and/or spoil someone for the evening.

Da Greco

Carrer de Santa Teresa 10
Tel. 932 186 550
935 192 476
The Italian restaurant Da Greco is very easy to locate - its doors and a very legible sign are visible from all sides of Jardinets de Gràcia at the top of Passeig de Gràcia - but so much more diffcult to get into. You do not have to know celebrities or have a million-dollar bank account to get in, heck, you do not even need to wear a tie, but you do have to phone in advance even for Monday evening dinners, which is almost unheard of in Barcelona when it comes to reasonably priced local favourites. Da Greco is very much a local establishment, whose popularity spreads by word of mouth, and it is said that low-key atmosphere gets many famous personalities past the heavy wooden doors.

Chef Tony Greco makes pastas, risottos, salads and lasagnas in the kitchen where any guest can peek in, and his son is the in-house master of desserts. The food served at da Greco is exquisite, despite (or may be due to) its deceptive simplicity. Every pasta is cooked to the perfect finish, every sauce perfectly balances the pasta toppings, and every big dish you order comes with a small platter of the same food for your table to sample. This is a simple yet such an original idea: serving an additional small plate of lasagna, white truffles gnocchi or shrimp fettuccine costs the restaurant next to nothing, yet spares people the pain of sharing their dish or salivating at the sight of the food somebody else ordered while theirs is coming up. Too bad Da Greco does not do the same for desserts!

Visiting Da Greco truly makes up for a wonderful evening. Reservations highly advised.

Cornelia & Co

Carrer de València 225
Tel. 932 723 956
The tagline of Cornelia & Co is "Your daily picnic store", and indeed, here you can not only have a meal, a cup of coffee or an afternoon glass of wine, but buy fresh bread, jamón, wines and other delicacies. Cornelia & Co is the yesterday's fashion: it is a very trendy restaurant still, but it is going out of style for no other reason but the fickle nature of Barcelona restaurant-goers.

Their menu does not change, so if you visit often, you may find yourself a bit bored or, alternatively, comforted by the lack of surprises. Goat cheese salad served with honey and burrata cheese are two top appetizers recommended. For the main courses, Cornelia & Co offers a few types of hamburgers (that is to say, ground meat, as in Barcelona a hamburger does not necessarily have bread) and pasta dishes, and for dessert you are well-advised to go with coulant or apple pie. Their all-time dessert champion, chocolate soup with sea salt, has been recently removed from the menu, which makes one wonder if this could be the true reason behind Cornelia's dwindling popularity.

Cup and Cake

Carrer d'Enric Granados 145
A cute little cupcake shop at the top of Enric Granados (the nearest intersection is Carrer París), Cup & Cake has some ten different types of cupcakes featured daily, plus tea, coffee and cookies. All freshly baked cupcakes are on display, but since it is quite difficult to tell them apart (try distinguishing between vanilla and coconut, for instance), ask the barista for explanation, she will be happy to point out the flavours for you. All of them are delicious without fail, but our favourite flavour is Crema Catalana. The interior of the café is airy and quite spacious, and even though the seating is naturally limited there is no feeling of overcrowding. A few tables are also found outside.

El Kilo

Carrer de Balmes 165
Tel. 932 221 795
El Kilo got on the bad side of the reviewer when she was greeted with a completely empty restaurant and the news that everything but seats at the bar were reserved, given without a hint of a smile. Service appears to be neutrally unfriendly and rather dismissive, which could be explained but not excused by how busy El Kilo gets every night. Sitting at the bar proved rather comfortable, however, except for the unfortunate placement of the wheelchair ramp – when its usage was required, guests at the bar were asked to stand up and move to let the wheelchair pass.

All negative remarks aside, El Kilo serves astoundingly delicious small plates. It is the definition of a classy tapas bar, where everything ordered comes in just in one or two bites (and works out to be expensive because of it), but those two bites, no matter the course, melt in your mouth. Out of curiosity, the reviewer counted the number of octopus bites and potato wedges in the pulpo a la gallego ordered: there were five of each... This is the only place to date in Barcelona where you can spend 50€ and leave hungry. Reservations are highly recommended.

El Filete Ruso

Carrer d'Enric Granados 95
Tel. 932 171 310
El Filete Ruso is a trendy burger joint on one of the most glamorous street in the left Eixample - Carrer d'Enric Granados, which hides many other excellent places to eat. Hambuergueserias, as they are called in Spain, are a relatively new phenomenon in Barcelona, and even though locals know a good burger, it is not the most widely sought out food in Catalonia.

Be that as it may, El Filete Ruso is always full. Their menu has some twenty varieties of burger to choose from, all featuring organic meat and local produce, and a vegetarian option was spotted too. Several salads, patatas bravas, as well as New York style milkshakes make an appeareance, and the latter are commendably listed in the dessert section, as opposed to being considered drinks.

The decor is pleasant and is that of upscale SoHo vibe, but seating is limited, playing into the restaurant's exclusivity factor. El Filete Ruso is on the steeper side price-wise (about 15€ for a burger and a drink), and no menu del día was detected, which is very unusual for Barcelona.
