I stumbled upon this place while strolling around the Gothic Quarter in Barcelona. What a gem. Basic, rustic and authentic. Very relaxing vibe, and lovely wine. Fascinating to watch dishes and drinks being prepared behind the counter. Well worth a visit. There are also a few other nearby bars worth visiting such as Zona D'Ombra and Bodega Biarritz 1881. Enjoy!

Tired, hungry and in need of a cuppa we opened the door. It was 4pm and with respect the Spanish don't usually understand tea but I was wrong. Prepared to be wowed by the tea selection and gorgeous simple food. If you want your food served quickly and simultaneously stay away. If you want an amazingly different experience with taste and lovely people to match, this is your thing. I was so relaxed I nearly fell asleep after the warming tea and underground atmosphere.

We visited this little hidden restaurant at around 4pm so most other visitors were having tea or wine but we ordered some food and we're glad we did! We had the bread with tomatoes - something that was done in a unique way with tahini sauce and some herbs (basil?). We also ordered a larger warm dish (the only one without cheese as my other half is lactose intolerant - photo uploaded) and this was also delicious. The menu was quite short and all vegetarian but even my carnivore of a fiancé loved the food here. Would definitely recommend to vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike.

The setting was also interesting and had a kooky, hippy vibe to it. The staff were very friendly too.

My mother and I were actually staying in an Airbnb apartment right above this teahouse when we decided one afternoon - after exhaustively exploring Barcelona - to stop for some tea here.

It is absolutely beautiful, very dark, cozy, and stony, and truly feels like a private hideaway in one of Barcelona's most touristy areas. It's only a couple pedestrian-trafficked alleys away from the Gothic Quarter's most-frequented plazas - yet you feel a complete world away.

I can't attest to the food here as we didn't have any, but we sat at a cozy table in the back (the place is adorned, floor-to-ceiling, in the most interesting teapots and cups) and enjoyed two pots of wonderfully-brewed tea.

If you're looking for a relaxing, quiet place to enjoy a cozier, more intimate side of the Gothic Quarter, look no further than Salterio!
