With little windy streets of cafes, bars and shops and open squares of lush greenery and outdoor bars, El Raval definitely has a laid back and local vibe to it. It is one of the lesser known areas of Barcelona for tourists but we were immediately fond of it and liked the fact it was less touristy and busy.

As we were shown to our table, we walked through the open plan kitchen and saw the chefs at work before being seated at a table at the end of the room with great views of the city and the mountains. Dos Cielos is surprisingly small and intimate and with every table occupied, we definitely felt very lucky to be dining there.

For our second night in Barcelona, we caught the Metro over to the other side of the city arriving at Poble Nou. For those who haven't been to Barcelona before, the Metro is extremely easy to use and is a quick and cheap way to get around the city.
