We were lucky to get four spaces at the crowded tapas bar - one which served real (most tapas bars claim to have it) and cut by hand Jamón Iberico pata negra - something (we found) to be hard to find in BCN - unlike in other areas of spain (as it seems to be hard to find an authentic... More

We ate here two times in 3 days. Excellent selection of seafood, not cheap but portions are very big and service was very good. One of my favorite places for Tapas in Barcelona.. I'll return here on my next visit to the city..

Tapas are super tasty and fresh. We ate there twice. Portions are large. Location is very pleasant and away from the Rambla masses of people. Fun vibe, full of energy and people. Not cheap but the quality of food is high. Highly recommend this place.

The seafood here is delicious and fresh. The decor is like many other Barcelona eateries, casual with bar seating. Our only issue was the bill. For two people we ordered 5 tapas and 2 drinks. Our bill was 55 EUROS!!! The speciality dish (pulpo or octopus) is 16 euros alone. The waiters push you into ordering more food than you... More

This restaurant is fantastic; the location, the quality of foof and the mood BUT if you're tourist pay attention because they increase prices serving more food than required as "tapas". The menù is on a wall very hidden and you can't check prices. We paid 38€ for what 2 from Barcelona paid 21!!! Stop the waiter of he gives you... More

Tucked away one street behind the main harbour road and a couple away from Las Ramblas, Bar Celta is worth the (tiny) walk. I was fortunate enough to live 4 doors down so I'm highly familiar with the place. The tapas are fresh, fantastically varied and really reasonably priced. The staff are surprisingly (Spain-wide service is notoriously poor) really helpful... More

This place was a little out of the way from the touristy stretch but I manage to find it using google map. It's quite a local place and the waiter doesn't speak English but he was friendly and helpful. I had a beer and grilled squid. The squid wasn't fantastic coz it was recooked thus too hard. The fried was... More

Went here for a late lunch today after reading the reviews. It certainly lived up to expectations. The octopus speciality was excellent as was the fried squid. We got a table fine and the waiter was very helpful with ordering.

My friends and I, tapas newbies, came here late one night for an overdue dinner - I had noticed the high reviews in my trip planning and very glad we acted on the recommendations. It IS on Carrer de la Princesa (easily accessible) and incidentally less than 5 minutes away from where we were staying in the Born district. The... More
