Went to this place after having read reviews on tripadvisor so we were expecting service to be poor. To our surprise, it wasn't really that bad with the exception of one Spanish speaking brunette.We were mostly served by this Filipino lady and she was very pleasant and helpful with recommending dishes. We ordered several tapas dishes: Squid ink rice -... More

Lovely tapas restaurant with a lively bar where you can watch the tapas being prepared. We were there around 4:00pm on a week day and the restaurant & bar were both full but we managed to get a table outside. There was a good selection of Tapas and a great wine list. Service was very friendly and efficient. Well worth... More

40 minutes waiting for table tells you a story of a popular restaurant frequently visited by locals. Tapas meny was mainstream and wine selection a little limited, but a quick service and an experience from the upper shelves.

The Cerveseria Catalana is considered as a must do in Barcelona, but to be honest they are victim of their reputation. You need to get there around 8 to put your name down and eat around 9. And then they serve you in a blink, throwing the plates on your table and speeding you up so you get out and... More

I loved this place - both the food and the fact that if you go early, you can sit at the bar and keep an eye on the new dishes as they arrive. It's a good way to eat lunch, particularly if you are eating alone. I choose a selection of savoury morsels. Those served on bread were a distinct... More

Must go to in Barcelona. Get the shrimp, clams, pan con tomate, croquettes. One of the best meals youll have in Barca. I studied food here for 4 months if that helps credibility.

The food is excellent and super fresh. The people there were very helpful in giving advice about what to pick. There's a large sit down portion of the restaurant, but we sat at the counter where there's more decent turnover, but there were constantly people behind us trying to order takeout or vying for our seats. 5 plates of tapas...

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
