Location of the cafe is nice location in top of the famous street the la rambla. I ordered Muffin and cup of coffee late. One of the best chocolate muffins I ever taste. Also the late is perfect. A little bit expensive though.

The outside café was outstanding with very good services. The opportunity to sit back and have a casual lunch, with beer and to watch the people go by was very inspiring

The Zurich is one of the most known cafes in Barcelona because of its centric situation (near the Ramblas), which makes it a good choice for tourists visiting Barcelona. It's well communicated (close to a subway station), the service is nice, and you can enjoy the ocasional street artist while having a drink or a coffee.

The location is very convenient, it's a good spot to have a good coffee and snack for a break during a busy day wandering around Barcelona.

It is located right at the heart of the city on plaza catalunya, great place to stop for a break to catch your breath in between Ramblas and Passeio de Gracia. A good location, good coffee, and tourist price as to be expected.

This café is brilliantly situated right on Placa Cataluyna, so is a great place to recharge over lunch whilst watching everyone pass by! Not the cheapest in town, but not ridiculously expensive, and the waiter service is very efficient. My husband's cheese and ham croissant was excellent and my baguette was very good too.

This coffee bar is a tradition in Barcelona, so you do not have to miss to sit in one of the tables at the terrace and see the people passing in Plaza Cataluña and las Ramblas

The coffee was okay, the place at the Placa Catalunya is Great and the price was okay, not more. The coffee doesn't looked lovely and wasn't as good as other coffee here in Barcelona..

Cafe Zurich is in the Center Center of town, it s a perfect meeting point but no point to sit down and have a coffee there. It's very busy always, you will only meet tourists, it s too expensive for what it is serving. I always propose: meet there but dont sit down and go somewhere else. And as it... More
