Went there to celebrate two birthdays for friends coming from abroad, called the night before to make sure a birthday celebration would be planned at dessert, and they forgot!

This was some of the best food I have ever had. It was wonderful to have such an exquisite meal in a relaxed and casual atmosphere. We were in Barcelona for a week and went here three times!

Tapas was delightful and wonderfully presented. Easy and hassle free cafe/restaurant located just off the main Las Ramblas. Perfect for a chilled afternoon of sangria and good tapas!

My wife and I came across this wonderful little bar that also served tapas as we looked for a bar to have a cheeky pre dinner drink and nibbles to see us through to dinner. The two bar staff were excellent, very friendly, accommodating and helpful. We had a glass of wine and an aperol spritz, one of the best... More

Wandering around, we stumbled across this place and almost walked by. So glad we didn't as the food here was nothing short of sublime. There can be no complaints about any of the food; it was all creatively put together and tasted wonderful. Full marks to the chef. The bar staff were incredibly helpful and informative about making recommendations and... More

We found La Castanya by accident and were very pleased to have done so as it was by far the best Tapas we had during our stay in Barcelona - excellent food and very helpful and attentive staff all at very reasonable prices

I did like and enjoy dinner here, although I don't see how this can be one of Barcelona's top 100 restaurants. We had to wait 15 minutes after we asked for the bill, we were left with the machine and ended up doing it ourselves - short staffed, I'd say! Food was good, but again, nothing too extraordinary or worth... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
