Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.

Well this place is rather cool. A small dining room with an open view kitchen and some seven or eight waitresses running around trying to serve the small tables crouded with customers hoping to taste great tapas. This is a sangria (multiple types available) and tapas place indeed. We loved fish meetballs and risotto tapas next to great plateau of traditional spanish cheeses. As a drink two pint of beautiful San Miguel. Do not forget the pies some gluten free cakes are also on the menu. The atmosphere makes this place very cool, this place is somehow warm and authentic and the food will surprise. If you can book in advance. You will find a line of waiting hopeful outside. And this is a good sign.

We come here every now and then. We're locals. I discovered Casa Lolea years ago and it has been my go-to restaurant since then. Lucky enough, recently I moved just 5 minutes from it. So now I do most of my business meetings here; I go with friends at every chance I get; sometimes I go alone if I'm craving some good ol' pasta risotto. If a friend or acquaintance is visiting the city I always bring them to Casa Lolea. The food is delicious and affordable, adding some nice twists to some classic dishes from the country and region. If visiting, I'd say the must-eat is the pasta risotto with truffle. It's just mind-blowing. Then I'd recommend some bravas to share too, as an appetizer. Finally I always recommend each person to choose a couple of montaditos. That (plus dessert) is often more than enough. And if someone is visiting from abroad, then maybe serrano or a table of cheeses. Dessert offers some nice twists on regional and national classics. I'd recommend the mel i mató; the ganache with salt and olive oil; or the torrija with ice cream. The service is great. Everyone treats you in a natural charming way and you get the impression the people working at the place is having a good time while there. And the place is very charming. It helps to make the time there memorable. I know this is such a long review to say everything is great. But dunno, it just is. There's a reason I go to Casa Lolea like once a week or every two weeks. Oh! Last time they even were super nice that I was ordering to bring food to the office and they bring it themselves there. The one who did that was Mónica. She was super nice about it. Thanks Mónica!

One of the nicest places I've dined in the last few years. I was skeptical at first since they seated us in the back room (the front area is nicer for sure) but after a few minutes we forgot all about it. The place have a cool and local vibe,, the food is very good, a lot of unique options to choose from, the sangria is excellent (all of them), and the service is out of this world. We had the fortunate to be served by THE nicest young lady named Victoria who helped us and others choosing the right dishes for us and we have great conversations with her. So refreshing to meet such great and professional people working in this line of business. I highly recommend going there at least once.

This is a little restaurant down a side street, but was easy to find with some help from Google maps. On arrival we were greeted by a really friendly waitress who gave us a menu and talked us through the different Sangrias they make there. We had the Sangria No2 which is the sweetest one they make with hints of vanilla - it was absolutely gorgeous. We ordered tomato bread, manchego cheese and cured meat to start off with. Before we got the food we were given complimentary pickled anchovy fillets which were gorgeous, and then when the food we'd ordered arrived we honestly couldn't fault it, it was amazing. We moved on to have the patatas bravas and the steak tartare, both of which were excellent and had the restaurant's spin on them, you could tell it was really authentic food. We had dessert as well - the creme brulee and the french toast with cinnamon ice cream - for these we had no words, absolute perfection. Would recommend this place to anyone visiting Barcelona. It isn't the cheapest place but so worth it for the quality of food and service you get. Really authentic tapas and a great atmosphere in the restaurant. Thank you!

This place is a mandatory visit when in Barcelona. We came across that place when walking out of our Yurbbann Passage hotel, googled the place, saw the good reviews and entered of course!!:) They have seating inside and always two tables outside. We visited them three times during our stay in Barcelona, always choosing outside seating with no reservation. We had visited plenty of other places of course but Casalolea gave us great food experience every time, we wanted to try more of their food too. You cannot try everything at once even if they are tapas :) The portions are very well sized even for small plates and they have additional daily menu in addition to their regular menu which is very nice. On top of that their wine menu is fantastic, very good prices, and the service is excellent. We always had some chat with our servers. I dont remember all the food we had but cannot say that anything was bland or not tasty, each dish was lively and delicious. Daily special Risotto with truffle cream was a blast. We loved their way of serving Patatas BRavas which is a must. We had great octopus, ceviche , tartare, beef carpacio was amazing. If you want great tapas a little bit away from crowdy center this is the place to go, no questions asked.

On our first night we had some late night tapas and sangria at Casa Lolea. I strongly recommend getting a reservation as the place had a constant flow of customers wanting to come in - and no wonder! The food was incredibly delicious, was a perfect first meal in Barcelona. The staff, despite very hot and humid weather, we’re wonderful and friendly. The sangria certainly lived up to the hype and thankfully their sangria can be found at the airport to take home.

It was our first day in Barcelona, and we somehow were able to be seated without having a reservation. The waitress beautifully explained how the menu worked, and in less than 3 minutes, we decided to order two different sangrias, the matured carpaccio, risotto pasta with truffles, and the patatas bravas. It might just be the amazing atmosphere, but I have never felt a more complete and fulfilling experience from eating food and drinking a drink. And not by a small margin either, this was just absolutely incredible, I had to consciously hold back tears. Would recommend 6/5!

The restaurant was small but we did not feel crowded - definitely make reservations, even for lunch). The sangria was excellent & the food was delicious! We had patatas brava (small round potatoes with a creamy, cheesy drizzle) and the dried meat platter (made even better by the directions from our waitress on how to use the garlic cloves, whole tomatoes & olive oil to make a "sandwich). The wait staff spoke English & were very friendly. The desserts were also wonderful - especially the carrot cake!

Casa Lolea is a must for any foodie in Barca! We loved it so much, we went two days in a row. The staff is darling and the restaurant is charming. There are plenty of gluten free and vegetarian options. The tapas are perfevtly portioned and it is not pricey at all. Plus the sangria is divine. I highly suggest Sangria No. 4. If I lived in Barca, I would go multiple times per week. Casa Lolea will be my first stop next time I visit Barcelona. Me encanta Casa Lolea! 😍

Casa Lolea is a culinary gem. Delicious enough for me to go for dinner three nights in a row to try different dishes. Some dishes intriguingly pair sweet and savory flavors to highlight each other. Their sangria is available online on sites like Amazon.

This is a little restaurant that you won't easily find. But if you do, you will be rewarded the effort of getting here. Cozy, great ambience, great and attentive staff. The Sangria here is to die for. Seriously great. The food is fabulous. Every tapas is just spot on, from balance to texture. The black truffle orzo risotto is a taste of heaven as one example. Even something as simple as the bread - perfectly toasted, with amazing crunch, distributed evenly an all sides, with just the right amount of moisture inside. Most importantly, a good friend of mine always said "It's not if it's good the first time, the question should be - was it good the second time?" Last time was 2 years ago. This time was just as perfect. This place is a gem. May it live long and prosper.

A must go in Barcelona, in my opinion I ate there the best patatas bravas in BCN. I really enjoyed the classic sangria as much as I bought three bottles to bring at home. The staff was really helpful. Even though it was required to make a reservation they accommodated us without reservation. A good report of price and value.

We loved this place so much, we went twice during our 6 day stay. Without booking a table, you don't have much chance of getting a table. They offer 5 different sangrias and the two types we tried were delicous. The tapas were outstanding. We defenitely would go back.

Our group of 7 loved this place. The atmosphere is charming and the food was delicious. We started with a bottle of the sangria which was served with ice and an orange and lemon slice. It was refreshing and delicious! We ordered tapas to share including their special risotto of the day, creamed scrambled eggs with mushrooms, guacamole toast, roast beef toast, mini hamburgers ,and tomato toast. Everything was wonderful. i would make a point of stopping here. And I will be buying their bottles of Sangria when we are back in the States.

We have been eating there twice and all the staff was extremely friendly in a very natural way (in contrary to most of the UK places). And despite of long work hours the smile did not disappear from faces of those lovely ladies. The food was freshly made and of good quality ingredients. We were impressed when they thought to serve cold drinks for us and room temperature for our kids. This kind of extra touches were worth a generous tip.

El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
