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

We went to the Bar Celta as we usually do when we're in BCN but - oh, no - the Bar was gone! After checking their website we found out that they still exist, but moved to another place which is in about 10 minutes walking distance (Carrer Princesa 50, with Carrer Comerç, 08003 Barcelona). The Bar still serves for... More

A place to eat classic tapas in a very casual environment with no frills. The bar can get noisy and the waiters will start yelling orders across the bar, but it’s all part of the fun and experience. Here you will find many of the classics like bombas, chocos, bravas, chipirones, pimientos de pardon, pulpo and more and more. Lots... More

Without any doubt the best pulpo a la Gallega you can eat here in Barcelona. They recently moved to c/ Princesa 50 after leaving their historical bar in c/ de la Merce. Great food and busy athmosphere; perfect if you want to eat son good fish tapas in a friendly place.
