Set back on a narrow street, El Paraguayo is brilliant. There were a lot of meat dishes- We went there twice and had the €37.00 steak for 2 people both times. It was the best steak I've had yet, simply wonderful. Also, try the sangria, it's fantastic.
Mariachis came by one of the 2 nights we went. The owners obviously knew them so they must come there frequently.
If you want your steak rare, order it medium. Also it's rather small and fills up after 20:00, so go early. (by Barcelona standards) Open for lunch & dinner Tuesday - Sunday.
They take American Express (and others).
