Bar Joan

Catalan in La Ribera

There are a couple of bar-restaurants in the Mercat de Santa Caterina, with Bar Joan known especially to locals for its arròs negre (cuttlefish-ink rice) on Tuesday at lunchtime and paella on Thursdays. It’s a simple spot, serving only tapas or the menú del día (daily set menu), but it's friendly and good value.
