We arrived about 5.45pm, so early by Barcelona standards. The restaurant was very busy but we had to wait less than 5 minutes. The waiters were very helpful, explaining what some dishes were and making recommendations. Despite being so busy the food came out quickly....More

A friend from Barcelona introduced me to this tapas place a few years ago and it really became my favorite restaurant in Barcelona. The offer of tapas is great for a decent price. My favorite tapas is definitely the crujiente de queso.

Disappointed. The waiter at the bar couldn't speak much English and recommended me anything. I have not been eating tapas often so I am unfamiliar with the menu.

The scaring crowd pushing in the afternoon at the entrance should not discourage you. The efficient lady will seat you in a surprisingly fast time. The waiters and waitresses will take care of you with surprising efficiency and speed. And tapas are just delicious, so...More

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

Hi! You can find photos of the menu online if you do a Google search (“Cerveceria Catalana Menu”). Remember this is a tapas restaurant so you don’t really order mains - you order lots of different little tapas plates which... More

Yes, you just have to wait after having your name listed and there is no waiting area where you can sit. Be prepared to wait at least 30 minutes during peak hour. As the others mentioned, it's worth the wait.
