This restaurant is located in the busiest square in Barcelona. This is a very touristy area and the food quality to price cost can often get out of whack. In this case the food was ok but the location over compensated for it. I will say the beer was nice and cold. In the future if probably wouldn't eat there... More

Very nice big and icecold beers served with delicious snack. A perfect place to cool down from very busy and overcrowded Ramblas situated at lovely square with plam trees

I have visited at this place with my wife. She enjoyed her food very much, so did I. Waiter was very friendly (and busy) since the place located in very crowded area. Nothing special but ok, not as horrible as other reviews suggested. A bit expencive,but those are the prices at such crowded places.

The meat was dry and old in the steaks. The caneloni were no caneloni, something with too much powder and some mixed meat. The paella Negro got just two calms and two small gambas. The campingons were not fresh. Every meal was no salt in it. The spinach omelet, tomato and mozarella are not well. The price is to expensive... More

Horrible food, horrible service and bird poo on the plate! Worst place I've ever been to, just relying on the passing high numbers I a busy place, can't see anyone ever visiting twice, over priced and terrible food!

We chose this bar over all the others in the Plaza as it was one of the only ones with seating available; in hindsight this was a bad decision! We were asked if we wanted a small or large beer, and thinking this meant either a small schooner or a half litre (as was the case everywhere else), we asked... More

What to say, you come to Plaza Reial and you wonder which place to pick when every single one is fully packed. So we grabbed the first open table at Alex brewery. I can't say this was the most lucky pick. The staff is friendly, not too pushy, but the food is really nothing special. Prices are so so, like... More

In Barcelona for the day having arrived on the Thomson Dream cruise liner. After a somewhat exhausting day taking in the sights we decided to go for somewhere quiet to eat. We were on La Rambla at the time and decided to look at restaurants in adjoining side streets. We came across Cervecria Alex in the quiet shady Plaza Real.... More
