Really enjoyed this bar! Seemed more authentic than the bigger (chain-ish) kind of restaurants! Me and my partner stayed in Barcelona for a weekend and we went here twice! Non expensive and super quick food with a good atmosphere. Also, I don’t eat pork. So...More

Place is located in the nice area with tables outside and that's a plus. There is a wide range of tapas but looking at the bar, it doesn't seem they are prepared in the most hygienic way.. We ate some (tasted fine) and had a...More

Your experience of Bar Zodiaco is likely to be affected by what you choose to eat, It certainly was for us. Our first time there we ordered two types of paella for dinner. Both were bland and tasteless - like sloppy rice with a few...More

Pintxos are marked with regular wooden sticks or with a little red dot so you know which ones are 1€ and which are €1.50. I’m a vegetarian and was amazed to find they had atleast 5-6 vegetarian options to choose from. They also warm them...More

The bar is around montjuic. You could go by walking after visiting Joan Miro Fundacion or Nacional Art Museum. Most of the pinchos are 1 euro and they are all tasty. You take as many pinchos as you want and in the end they count...More

Many vegetarian tapas options, mostly based on slices of baguette - but quite tasty. Two types of beer on tap, friendly service. We're able to get a table outside easily in the early evening.

Took a tube to Bar Zodiaco when we were looking for another tapas bar, Balia Tonight on the same street. I had researched the bar we were looking for before setting out. Once getting there, just did not get the right vibe, so walked on....More

We ran into Bar Zodiaco wandering around Poble Sec one evening before the Font Magica display. It was busy, but not so crowded that we struggled get a table, and the atmosphere was very relaxed. The people within the bar ranged from tourists (like ourselves)...More

Beyond the four columns standing guard at the Plaça
Espanya, beyond even the extravagant and colourful
fountains guiding your way up the boulevard, stands
the impressive and towering structure of the Palau
