We decided to try Mexican in Madrid for a change and found this delightful little bar serving great Mexican food... 


Funny name... It translates from Catalan as The Fifteen Nights. Located on a corner of Plaça Reial in the heart of the Gothic Quarter, Quinze Nits was one of our favourite restaurants in Barca... On a balmy evening grab a table outside under the colonnade and order a jug of Sangria while you peruse the menu. We ordered Rocket, Pear and Parmesan Salad,  Crispy Skin Salmon, Slow Cooked Lamb and Salmon Carpaccio. And of course Patatas Bravas... arguably the best we had in all of Spain. As was the sensational Apple Tarte Tartin, washed down with a crisp glass of Rosé.


Lateral is situated on Plaza de Santa Ana in the heart of Madrid. The place was all abuzz and the food was so amazing we didn't want to waste time taking photos... that and it was also pretty dark. So don't judge the food by the not-so-good iphone pics below...

Why Ronda? This is why... Walk down into the valley in the late afternoon and you'll be rewarded with this view. Oh and that's where we stayed up there on the left. The Parador de Ronda, make sure you ask for a room overlooking the valley. The view is breathtaking.

Ok, so I don't know what this pastry is called, but it was pretty darn delicious. We bought it on in a little store on Calle Tenorio in Ronda. It was like a giant Palmiere comprised mostly of butter and sugar I think. One between 2 people is recommended.

Granada = Free Tapas with every drink you order... How cool is that!

 El Bar de Fede makes the best Sangria in all of Spain... in my opinion. We stopped at this bar initially because the music pouring out it's door captivated us. We sat up at the bar and watched excitedly as the barman constructed gigantic glasses of Sangria in front of us. First we tried the red... and then we tried the white. The Tapas just kept coming, we dined on vongole and slow-cooked lamb. I recommend sitting up at the bar and enjoy the vibe. The staff were friendly and happy to translate the menu for us. Even my Sangria was smiling!

Of course you can order a la carte too, but wait and see what Tapas is on offer first.

TAPAS! Try everything... it's all good! We loved the bright clean interior, the green bottle lightfittings, the Sangria the friendly staff and especially the Tapas... Make sure you leave room for dessert and complimentary Pedro Ximinez Nectar. You won't regret it... "And if one green bottle should accidently fall"... just order another Sangria. :)

Florence Broadhurst wallpaper, hand-made sofas, chandeliers, gilded pictures frames in the heart of the Gothic Quarter. This place is oozing atmosphere... We arrived at 9 am for “Recovery Brunch” and tried the Waffles with fresh berries and the Bircher Museli with fresh fruit and yoghurt. Great breakfast location if you are looking for an alternative to a Jamon y Queso Bocadillo. Perfect start to a big day sightseeing in Barcelona and open late for cocktails too!

Milk is open everyday from 9.00am to 2.00am

Brunch 9.00am to 4.30pm and Dinner from 7.00pm to 12.00am

Modern cuisine meets Catalan bourgeoisie. Enjoy the glorious interior of a building that dates back to 1902, you can’t go wrong. 

Carrer dels Escudellers, 8

Funky little cafe and bar just off Plaça de George Orwell in the Gothic Quarter. Simple, honest food and a laid back ambiance. Settle in and relax and enjoy the wall art...
