  1. I posted a trip report recently, and there are several others here. We loved the food in Barcelona!

    1. The Eixample is a vast section of Barcelona that covers many neighbourhoods. If you're staying in the central part i.e. around Rambla de Catalunya and Passeig de Gracia, you shouldn't limit yourself to that one part of the city, You'll be within walking distance of the Cuitat Vella as well as Gracia and the lower part of Sant Gervasi. That means you can go to most of the restaurants discussed on this board.

            BTW, this is an example of why it would have been good to know where in the Eixample the OP will be staying. The Sant-Antoni area isn't exactly close to, let's say, Passeig de Sant-Joan.

            Anyway, the OP seems to have gone AWOL.
