I came here tonight on the recommendation of my local friend - it was his backup referral as the first restaurant he recommended was closed on Sundays. I've since had words with him and told him I won't accept his recommendations again. The food here...was VERY average - there was nothing bad about the tapas that I had, but there was certainly nothing to brag about. The quality was the same you'd get anywhere in Catalonia, really. The service, however, was disgraceful. The maître d'hôtel was actually very nice and friendly, but that's where it ended. I was seated by myself at a table by the window inside and then was ignored for some time by the waitress working this side of the restaurant. She literally served newer arrivals before me, presumably because they were larger parties and would tip better. At one point I even waved her down, she said 'Hola' and kept walking..! Eventually, I was served and placed my order - two tapas dishes and a beer. She brought one dish and the beer and walked away without a word. She then swapped out with another waitress from behind the bar. The new waitress wasn't much better. She eventually brought the second dish - tapas should be had at the same time to mix it up, from my understanding - then she went on to ignore me. I soon wanted to order a water, but that took forever to get her attention. It was, however, brought promptly once ordered. Later, I wanted to order another tapas dish and another beer (I was also considering a dessert) - it was almost 25 minutes before I got her attention - she just walked past me time and again, ignoring my words and waves. When she did finally look at me, she immediately made the international gesture for the bill, so I guess it was my time to go... I simply said Yes. Screw her and the restaurant, if they don't want a single person's money, they don't get it. I'll go to their competition. She then proceeded to serve SIX other tables before she brought me my bill. When she did so, she simply dropped it on the table, said 'Sixteen!' and walked away!! The rudeness just keep coming! I also don't know why she said this in English since our entire interaction had been in Spanish to this point: perhaps the rudeness was based on racism all this time? I was made to sit and wait some more - I had to wait to give them my money like it was a privilege! I couldn't get out of there fast enough, so when she finally took my payment, I didn't even want the receipt; I flew out of there as fast as I could. One waiter being rude and lacking customer focus is one thing. For two consecutive waiters to do shows that this is their standard culture - they understand they're popular, so they very literally don't care. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS ESTABLISHMENT. Take your money elsewhere to where they'll either give you proper service or quality food - one or the other would be fine; Ciudad Condal offers neither.More

Certainly one of the best tapas bars in Barcelona. The food and service were very good. The prices are absolutely ok.

From the same owner of Cevecería Catalana, the tapas-bar Ciudad Condal is a great place to eat, have a couple of drinks and enjoy nightlife in Barcelona. Definitely one of my favorite places in town. Great service from waiter Sergi.

I have been coming to Ciudad condal for more than 10 years. Unfortunately I will not go there again. With Covid they laid off a lot of their staff. Service is terrible now. Quality of food has decreased a lot. What a pity. I know...that tourists still love the place. But for anybody who knew the restaurant before Covid Ciudad Condal is not the same.More

Delicious and affordable! We had the beef baguette sandwich, asparagus and the most amazing churros with dipping chocolate. The outside seating is perfect for people watching too!

They serve all night! Until 02:30am I believe. It’s super popular so most people eat at around 22:00.
