Raval is one of my favorite neighborhoods. It’s a little rough around the edges, but so charming, like a beautiful flower growing through the asphalt. Anyway, enough with the poetics. In Raval you can find little gems here and there, on dark and quiet streets, where you wouldn’t expect anything in particular. Las Fernández is a place just like that. You need to know where it is, because you won’t stumble upon it, unless you’re visiting your heroin dealer in the neighborhood. No, just kidding..!
Las Fernández is like Raval: a bit rugged, but cosy, dark, casual and inviting. The restaurant has a menu, but wait for the specials before you decide. The specials come on a handwritten piece of paper, and they are many of them. The staff explains the details of the dishes, and now is when it gets difficult. Which one should you choose? A good idea is to choose several different starters and main courses (and why not desserts too) and share, then you get to try out many different things.

Las Fernandez Restaurant Barcelona
IN A NUTSHELL
Atmosphere: Because it’s all hidden away on a side street in the Raval it feels secluded and secret. It’s cosy too!
Recommended: Anything on the menu that is the little piece of paper..!
Specifics: Not touristy at all, mostly because of its secluded location.
Reservations: Better to book ahead on the weekend.
