Very well decorated place with a nice atmosphere. They have wide variety of cakes and pastry and teas and coffes. Good quality-price.

Thanks for writing about the decoration and the atmosphere. It's important for us to offer you the best catalan products in the best posible way. How and Where it's as important as what we serve. We have redecorated some spots in our café and we're working in new areas. We hope to see you soon with some news. More

The atmosphere here is nice, but there was not much seating downstairs (maybe there is upstairs seating?). The staff were friendly and helpful, so we are sad to say that the churros were disappointing. The churros were hot, but chewy, and the chocolate was sweeter than other places we had tried, so it was more to our taste.

We're sorry to read that you had a bad experience with our churros. Churros and chocolate it's one of our clients favourite product so it was really rare that they become chewy as you say. Anyway, next time you find something that it's not as good as it would, talk to our staff, the will check it and change it... More

Not sure if i need give any details. Phenominal ice cream in the heart of Rambla. I sumply loved. Tried a few flavors and they were all to fie for. Even the cone was perfectly crunchy and was worth every bite into it. A must try if ur in Barcelona visiting Rambla.

Thanks for writing about our icecreams and sorbets. In summer it's our star product, (but we have it 365 days a year) lots of people come to visit us only to try and take some of them... to many flavours to decide, right? But we love to know your opinions so thanks a lot for writing about our traditional gelato... More

Good food, atmosphere and people watching spot. Just off las Rambla at entrance to Plaza Real. Fair prices too. No outside seating the only downside.

My hubby and I ate here a couple of times whilst in Barcelona. The ham and cheese croissant and orange juice is a lovely way to start the morning. Please bear with the staff they are friendly with good English but it appears a little short staffed in a morning so under pressure.

We visited Artisa twice today, once for breakfast and once at the end of the evening for churros and chocolate (well, when in Spain and all that...) Both were of a very high standard...breakfast a lovely ham, cheese croissant and fruit juice and a damn good coffee, and supper churros with a rich hot chocolate sauce...mmmm.

Okay so my Mom and I spent 5 nights in Barcelona last week and we had been eyeing up this little gelaterie / creperie / cafe for the first four-five days and on the last day we took the plunge and went in... Firstly, it was very strange as EVERY customer inside the café stared us up and down (inexplainable.)... More
