You’ll maybe see a few strolling by but you won’t see or hear many tourists in Casa Albert – they’re all too busy spending their money in the nearby overpriced trendy bars and restaurants. For about the same price of a starter (€ 8.50 incl.tax) at a nearby ‘name’ restaurant you can sit yourself at a table in the small square just around the corner from the grand church of Santa Maria and enjoy a three-course lunch complete with bread, water and a bottle of table wine.
This unassuming restaurant-bar serves locals good, cheap traditional wholesome food.
You’ll have a choice of five or six first courses and five or six second courses and a selection of desserts (including homemade chocolate mousse).
You won’t have to make a reservation, you won’t have to join a line, and you won’t have to pay a supplement to eat on the terrace.
Probably the best lunchtime deal you’ll find in the old part of the city (Barrio Gotico and El Born). It’s not fancy but it’s friendly, and the waiter and waitress will speak English if you need help. A good place to eat and drink while watching the world go by.
Please be aware Casa Albert closes at 15:30 and is not open in the evening.
