Don't waste your time and rush to this place. The taste of "Pulpo a la Gallega" is just to good to be true cooked to perfection. Now on more serious topics...if you happen to be a "Croqueta" connoisseur....the bechamel...ham flavor and cooking technique of this place will blow your palate. Best croqueta by far in the city guaranteed. Service was... More

I enjoyed both of my two visits in Bar Celta. The variety of tapas is impressive, the prices are not too high but the problem is they don't give you any specific menu - the tapas are written on the wall but for me it was a little unclear and eventually I chose something more expensive than I planned. So... More

This place was quite crowded and a bit small but the food was very delicious and we enjoyed a lunch here. The place was recommended to us by a tour guide. We ordered a mix of tapas for 5 people for cca 10euros per person.

My boyfriend and I stumbled upon this place while we were looking for another restaurant that we still have not found. We thought it looked good and went in. The waiter spoke no English which I do not fault him for because we are in his country, we do fault them for being dishonest about the prices. My boyfriend asked... More

Perhaps not the place for a quiet romantic meal for two, as it's a brightly lit bar with locals popping in for a quick drink and bite to eat but we had a great time non the less. The service was very quick and friendly, and the Pulpo is just fabulous. There is a good range of tapas, although seafood... More

Be carefully tourist !! ... Mediocre quality, demeaning personal's treatment and fraud when you ask for the bill. This place it's NOT recommended, treated with rudeness and lack of to the customer, and they commit fraud on the final bill. BE CAREFULLY !! We have just reported this accion to the Consumer Authority of Catalunya.

Searched long for a sandwich and beer for lunch kind of place. Didn't try the tapas because we saved that for dinner. Had an iberico ham sandwich and a chorizo sandwich. With two draft beers. Such simple food had so much remarkable flavor. Now I need to get back there for their tapas.

We found this by accident, not inspiring on the outside but the 'Polperia' above the door caught our attention. Excellent tapas, with an unbeatable speciality of Polpo Gallega, the most expensive thing on the menu but well worth it. Otherwise prices very average. We went back the next night and intend to do so whenever we visit Barcelona again. They... More

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
