Literally around the corner from Les Rambles in El Raval, this casual dining spot attracts a largely local clientele. They come for the fresh-market dinner dishes (duck breast with glazed onions, steak tartare) and the extensive list of salads, soups, and tapas. In keeping with Barcelona's passion for Italian pasta, Bar Lobo offers such dishes as penne carbonara and rigatoni with pesto and chopped tomatoes. It also offers a long list of desserts, and many customers pop in for coffee and a sweet after an evening at one of the neighborhood theaters.
