I loved the food here, particularly the Cabreaos. Seating on the street is good and the service is excellent. There is usually a queue for outdoor seating but you can sit on the bench opposite and wait there till the head waiter calls you. He is very organized and will have your name on the list till a table is... More

Visited Ciudad Condal around lunchtime last Friday. Came upon it by chance and just went inside hoping to get a table. After reading some of the other reviews we must have been lucky as we only waited a couple of minutes till we got a table. We were impressed with the selection of tapas available and everything looked so fresh... More

Apart from the rather long wait, nearly an hour before I was seated outside - it is cooler, more spacious and less noisy compared to the inside. The tapas was great. The place being busy is a good sign, food were served fresh. Among the dishes I ordered, the Cabreaos is a definite must-try! I also tried a peculiar mini-hamburgers... More

One of my preferred tapas and pinchos restaurants in Barcelona center, great food, great pinchos, great tapas, fast and happy service, when you get a table. Problem here is to get a table, no reservations accepted by phone only on arrival, and the waiting can go up to 45/60 minutes... Don't desperate, get something to drink, it will worth the... More

I have eaten at Ciudad Condal many times, but yesterday's visit prompted me to finally write a review. This is the kind of place that was probably one of the more traditional restaurants back in the day, but due to its reputation and central location also turned into a major tourist destination. Nothing wrong with that. The quality of the... More

Have the biggest variety of tapas and they were so delicious. The Sangria was so so but could still deliver a punch if you drink too many. I think on our four day stay we went here at least three times. The longest time we had to wait was fifteen minutes. It's a great place.

We were absolutely baffled. This place had been recommended by our taxi driver and also a waitress at another restaurant. The food was not any better than you would find in the deli case at Safeway. In fact, we ordered 5 different tapas and they were all horrible. Don't waste your money...we had a great meal the night before at... More

We were recommended this place by our hotel which was close by. We had a 20min wait for lunch but it was worth it! The portion size was pretty big which we didn't expect so we ordered 7 between two of us and it was quite a lot. We managed to struggle on! The highlights were the bravas and the... More

If you're in Barcelona, Ciudad Condal is a must!!! The tapas were superb, the Sangria excellent (I haven't stopped wanting another pitcher since I left) and the atmosphere was warm and inviting. There was a very short wait, but well worth it!
