I am quite a foodie, despite my small frame, so I love finding little gems in the most unexpected of places. We found El Jardín by accident when searching for a different tapas restaurant near by. Nestled into garden in a side street off of Plaça Reial, the restaurant/bar is aptly named. The serene atmosphere with outdoor seating, twinkling fairy lights draped along the terrace and a helpful friendly (hippie) staff. It was perfect for a small, quick meal, before heading to a flamenco show at Tarantos. We sampled almost everything on the menu (the picture doesn’t quite our visit justice)…and even cleared them out of cava in just under and hour – we have quite a healthy thirst that day.
Definitely worth a visit if you’re in town! I know I’ll be going back for certain. I can’t even recommend something to try because we loved everything!
