Petit Montjuïc is in a cosy environment, surrounded by greenery, away from the busy city, so it is perfect when I look for a spot to chill and relax. For sure you will notice that most of the people greet the waitress when arriving, as most of them are from the neighbourhood, so certainly it is frequented by locals.
Marta and Souhail are the owners and will definitely welcome to their small restaurant with a friendly smile. Petit means small in Catalan, so don’t expect a huge restaurant, but rather a cosy and intimate bar with a short but successful offer.
Petit Montjuïc offers a Mediterranean menu with Algerian specialities. Souhail cooks one of the best couscous I have tried in Barcelona so it is worth going only for this. The original is with beef but there is also a vegetarian option.
There are some other small dishes to share such as salads, baked potatoes and baked millefeuille, all dishes with an Algerian touch. You cannot leave without tasting their baklavas for dessert!
It is very affordable, so I cannot think of a better experience in Barcelona!
