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

okay - Tapas: you may find 1000's of bars, restaurants or locations, where you will get delicious and appetizingly Tapas. Bar Celta is not offering the best Tapas I ever had, BUT they are really scrumptious. Pricing is fair and the service staff is doing a nice side show. Go for the "Turbio-wine" and take a look to the bar... More

SUPERB fresh seafood tapas, very simple, unpretentious fresh delicious seafood. Octopus al a gallega, fried squid, razor clams, crab croquettes you name it, all bloody fantastic. Amazing friendly staff and great value. A must visit for seafood lovers and those who like to eat the social way. Hands down the best place I ate in barcelona.....

I like this kind of place. There is no pomp or ceremony, just good food, good service. I went in, picked what I wanted from all that was on display behind the large counter and was served. The guy was friendly, the food was tasty. Not sure if it was expensive. I had 3 tapas choices and a beer for... More

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
