This is your place if you are looking for great octopus in a relaxed, non pretentious but cool setting. The octopus is excellent - served on a wooden board in a very large portion! Also recommend the baked green peppers which are among the best I had that week in Barcelona. Service is excellent too

This tapas bar specializes in tapas from Galicia, and they serve their wine in bowls! They pour the first bowl and you refill as often as you like (they will tally up the total at the end). There are three long counters with choices of traditional tortillas (in Spain this is a potato quiche), sausages, fried fish and seafood like... More

The food is good. The place can be louder than others but we had a good time. We waited for a table but it's worth the wait. Octopus, prawns, tortilla, all really good. No fancy service. Just good food delivered in a simple but damn tasty way. For me, a top experience. Oh yeah, and the price is great value... More

Best tapas in Barcelona, try a bit of everything! Especially baby calamari. Really friendly and energetic people, we were speaking Spanish with them, but heard them speak English, so you'll get along well with them!

very nice tapas. The staff was very attentions. Prices are ok. I definitely recommend it. I got the pulpo pequeno and it was the best "pulpo" in my opinion. It also close to the cidadela park, which is a great option for a walk after eating and drinking

During our two weeks in Spain, I can honestly say that this was the best tapas we had. And trust me, we had tapas day in and day out, so lots to compare to. We ended up going to Bar Celta Pulperia twice during our 6 day stay in Barcelona. It was that good. The first time we went, it... More

Neighborhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighborhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
