This was our first restaurant stop in Barcelona and we were so excited for tapas. The food was very good, not the greatest. But the restaurant was really cute, loved the atmosphere, and our waitress was so incredibly helpful. She recommended some places for us to go to at night and have a good time. Loved the croquette and the... More

My husband and I dined here almost a year ago and I enjoyed it so much that I had to find it on here to review. We only stopped in because we saw it was near us and had good reviews. Hard to find but worth it once inside. Nice ambiance and just enough romance for us. The food was... More

I think I we were dining with only1terible's family in the same room, at the same time. They had an event that night, wherein some of the choices for tapas were unavailable. We were given attention to it after 15 minutes or so. The cheap and delicious bottle of Cava helped us kill time. When the food came it was... More

We had seen this on trip advisor and after so many good reviews we decided to give it a go as it was near our apartment. I must say I was extremely disappointed. My husband and son decided to try the tapas whereas I decided to go for the pasta of the day. After half an hour we were told... More

We were looking for a nice place to take our son who we were meeting for dinner, he has been working on the cruise ships and was in Barcelona for 24 hours. After reading Trip Advisor we decided to come here but it was a disappointment. To start with we were not asked if we wanted drinks eventually we ordered... More

Again following trip advisor, we ended up in this restaurant. And Again, another success. You can have tapas and more international food if you are tired of tapas. We had gambas al ajillo for starters and they were supreme. Then we followed up with pink Salmon and pork with a plum grape which was awesome. We had moritos and sangria... More

I attended El Callejon on two occasions whist I stayed in Barcelona. Had some tapas on the first visit with beautiful wines and some Spanish Brandy with "Flan con Dulce de Leche" and coffee the second time around. The staff are wonderful and very willing to make you feel at home. The bar is also very warm and cosy, perfect... More

I was staying nearby and walked in because it was open for dinner at 8:30pm. I ordered salmon with shrimp sauce. It was good. I also ordered strawberry mojito. Probably one of the best mojitos I have had. The staff working there were very friendly. Not sure I would send visitors rushing there, but if your staying in the area... More

Very small inconspicuous restaurant with a lovely small menu. Better to cook less with high quality than to have a menu with 100 meals and not knowing what to do. The dishes were nice, the waiter was attentive and the place has a very private and intimate atmosphere. Happy I was there.
