On my second trip to Barcelona I wanted to return to this tapas restaurant as I had enjoyed it twice on my previous visit. This time it was more convenient as my hotel was on Mallorca. Whay differed this time was that it was standing room only at an early hour, which we had not experienced on our previous trip. However, we were seated fairly quickly and served by two gracious servers. Everything we ordered was perfectly done and really tasty. It is well-worth the visit and the wait to get in.

When we came to Barcelona, cerveceria was ranked top 10 in trip advisor. Since that time it just keeps getting busier and busier. The tapas are very well prepared and affordable, but it feels like a tapas factory now. We've had to wait consistently between 30 to 45 minutes to get a table for an early dinner (8 or 9 o'clock) and we haven't been going back mostly due to the wait times. The service is quick but it feels like they want to get you in and out as fast as possible so that they can seat more customers. Good food and good value, if you can get in.

I have gone here with friends on many trips to Barcelona. It is always very crowded and the wait is long (no reservations). The tapas are good but certainly not worth the rave reviews and hype shown on Trip Advisor.

This was a true GEM in Barcelona. We visited midweek and it was busy but with efficiency and friendliness we were served well despite being vegetarian we were advised on a wide range of dishes that were very tasty and washed down with local beer suggested by our very friendly waiter.

Unfortunately on the Friday night we couldn't find the place till later and it was then BUSY and the wait for a table was going to be 50mins but we could have sat at the bar.

When in Barcelona next, this is the place for me. It is where the locals are as well as some tourists in the know.
