we didn't book in advance and there was a bit of a queue when we got there around 1, and it took about 30 minutes to get a seat. the food was nice, though some of it could have used some salt/ lemon juice. The service was good.

We had breakfast here every morning of our stay. Delicious coffee, Madeleines and flautas kept us going until lunch. The orange juice is freshly squeezed. We didn't try the beer but even in the morning it seemed popular!

This is the first name that would come up if you search tapas bar on tripadvisor, yelp, etc. so it gotta be good. It happened that it was just down the block from our hotel so of course we had to try it once we arrived Barcelona. There's always a line. We came at 7pm and luckily there were 2... More

Cervecería catalana is amazing! Besides the local brewed beer, they have a great (and delicius) variety of tapas! I recommend the huevos cabreados y los quesos con marmelada de fresa. Perfect!!

Whilst Cerveceria Catalana did not blow me away, I would definitely recommend this place for what it is. The food is good authentic tapas, and the prices are great, definitely nothing to grumble about there. The service however is quite rushed and not in the slightest bit personable. I think we arrived during their peak time (around 8pm) as we... More

Visited this restaurant last week and would highly recommend it. We ordered a mixture of tapas ranging from calamares, pulpo a la gallega, patatas bravas and croquetas de jamon. I could have ate 20 of the croquetes alone , they were delicious :) Overall: Fresh authentic spanish food. What more can you ask for!

Perfect place for: Lovers of fresh seafood (squid, shellfish) and tapas. Not annoyed by having to wait in a likely noisy and crowded environment, all for great food. Price Point: Not a cheap eat place. Reasonably priced for the quality of food and cooking. Environment: Bar area - first come first serve, more crowded & can be chaotic. Restaurant -... More

Stopped here at 1900 on a Tuesday. I was seated immediately and able to choose my tapas fresh. They were the best I had in Barcelona and the sangria was delicious!

Thank KaylenJane

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.
