Thankfully we booked a place at this buzzing place because it was very busy when we arrived. The kitchen is in the middle of the restaurant semi closed off with the bar winding around it. We sat at one of the high rise tables. Our waiter was pretty surly and a bit sniffy when I asked him loads of questions... More

Went out as a family on the recommendation of our Air BnB host, food was delicious. Our waiter was really friendly and very helpful. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for good quality tapas bar.

Loved it so much i hugged my waiter, great food in a super busy place, service was outstanding . The red prawns and anchovies were a real highlight and the wine list is extensive enough with fantastic value.

The red prawns with garlic sauce were amazing! Very simple, excellent cooked and extremely tasty because their raw materials are very good. We also had paella with seafood, both with white rice and black rice, cod croquettes with sauce, and crema catalana and also were good. Also the service was very fast, polite and helpfull!! I would definitely go again!

Cerveceria Catalana had an hour-long wait so we decided to give this one a try. It was before 8 pm and we were seated immediately at the bar. We liked most of the dishes the waiter recommended especially the Obama (fried cuttlefish balls) and fried baby squids. We came back for lunch the next day and tried a few new... More

We enjoyed the variety of tapas at this restaurant. The service was good. Pricing is fair for the quality. The problem is that Paco Meralgo is very popular. Lots of locals eat here. The diners waiting for seats are too close to the people already seated. Also, we were seated near the door and the constant opening and closing was... More

This was absolutely amazing. The place was recommended to me by a local friend and we were not disappointed. This was Spanish tapas at its best and there were so many good and different options that I struggle to pick some out. Also very good wines at reasonable prices. Note that it is possible to book a table if you... More

I give this rating not because of the food (which was very good) but because of the tourist scam that caught us off-guard. We were quickly pegged as tourists and given an English menu. This should have been our warning. We ordered some wine and several tapas. We looked forward to this visit as it came highly recommended. The tapas... More

Visited by chance 5 years ago, was so impressed had to come back! 4 adults & 4 children had an amazing dining experience. Our waiter recommended from the menu, helped us choose the must have dishes & the right quantity - and was available when we needed more. Clearly favoured by locals & also popular with tourists; you really need... More

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
Eixample
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.
