Eixample Esquerra in Barcelona, also known as the Left Eixample, doesn’t have the glow of the modernist architecture that you can find in its neighbor Eixample Dret in Barcelona; however, Esquerra de l’Eixample district is widely known for Barcelona’s inhabitants for concentrating an important entertainment area.

Eixample Esquerre is located in the heart of Barcelona and is well connected to the rest of the city by public transportation. This neighborhood is close to Plaza España and the convention center Fira de Barcelona, and to the main railway station in Barcelona, Sants Estació.  This is a residential area where a large part of middle class population of Barcelona lives, so it has many metro and bus stations.

Restaurants:

You can get ice cream fresh yogurt or fresh yogurt with delicious toppings (we tried the wild strawberry and loved it), and it is also a healthy food restaurant (close on Sundays).
  • Lanina Restaurant (Calle Aribau 27).We went to this restaurant and ate a grilled cuttlefish and sea-mountain rice (seafood and rabbit rice) really delicious. Good customer service.
