Mandatory stop when in Barcelona. Booking in advance is a must but if you don't want to eat at 10pm you will find the place almoat empty at 8.30 when they open. The menu with fix price is a very good deal and the wine very fairly priced. All in all given the quality and price a real bargain

Great atmosphere and an exciting menu of fusion tapas with combinations that you've probably never tried before. The service can be a bit slow at first but once the drinks and food starts coming you're in good hands. Be prepared for 2-3 hours of pure pleasure. And don't spend too much time reading tips and reviews. Everything is worth trying.... More

We always book at least a day ahead just to be sure, but around 20:45 on a Monday night it was not busy. We got the menu for 3 (where you pick a number of items from the menu plus a drink) - reasonably priced and very tasty, worth a visit.

We had mainly vegetarian tapas with the exception of one dish. Food was delicious, desserts were especially good! Service was fantastic. Only downfall: no coffee/tea and no water jug on table. Prices were good, cava was lovely! Really nice place to go in Gracia

Samsara is the Best fusion tapas bar in Gràcia. If you want to have dinner at weekend it is highly recommended to book a table.

We ate here on a recommendation, the menu looked a little bizarre and we thought it could go either way... The food was incredible, amazing flavours and unique sauces. (Never thought seafood and white chocolate would work together!?) the service was a bit slow considering we were the only ones there to begin with and the seating was quite awkward... More

I was recommended by a local friend to try this, love the ambience and their suggested tapas, especially the sweet potatoes with pesto. Friendly staff, good value for money.

Tried this place for dinner with a friend, which we both enjoyed. We only just squeezed onto the last table in the place at about 21:30, so go earlier to avoid the busiest time. Service was very friendly, perhaps a little slow but can be forgiven. We shared 5 tapas, which was enough between two. The salad with prawns was... More

We came to this restaurant thanks to my friend who lives in the area and it was definitely wort the trip! The tapas are really amazing - we had a salad with shrimp and fruits, squid with white chocolate (the taste was so good) and lots of other things. Oh, and their patatas bravas (with pesto) were the best I... More

Staying in Gracia

Neighbourhood Profile
Gracia
Gracia literally stands out from the pack. It used to be an independent town until late into the 19th century. Though it’s just a short commute away from the centre, a visit here feels like you’re in a whole different city. The bohemian vibe has drawn many international artists to this area, resulting in a wide selection of galleries, live music and artsy boutique stores. The nightlife is centered around the vibrant Gracia’s plaças, where young and old gather to enjoy a drink outside. Carrer de Verdi, its main street, offers affordable restaurants and a movie theatre that screens new as well as classic films in their original language. However Gracia's greatest treasure lies just up the hill at Guell Park, where Antoni Gaudi's vibrant and revolutionary art sculptures stand atop unequaled views of Barcelona.
