Great Deal in Barcelona

After visitng several restaurants, my experience is that this is one of the best in terms of deal value. Seems fancy and expensive, but the truth is that dishes are great, big, and cheap for the quality. Is alwways full and you can't make a reservation, that also means something about what you will... read more

Seems fancy and expensive, but the truth is that dishes are great, big, and cheap for the quality. Is alwways full and you can't make a reservation, that also means something about what you will find. I strongly recommend this restaurant.

The food is OK, a little above normal food. But the environment is not so good. There are so many Korean and they are always talking, which make you not so comfortable.

Recommended. We visited this place based on the recommendations of friends and Trip Advisor reviews. The food is good and tasty. The service is horrible: inattentive and impersonal to the point of insulting. The good news: The prices are reasonable (no hidden or misleading ads for food as is common in Barcelona) and entrees are tasty.

Lots of tourists. People are busy. Service is poor or no service. Food however is good and not expensive, given the quality of food and venue. Set menu is chosen, at about 20 euros. The goat cheese salad and cappaccio are yummy. But you have to bear with staff's manner.

Barcelona is a city I visit on a yearly basis without fail. I am a lover of Spanish culture, food and people. Did I say food!?? :) After waiting roughly 15mins for a seat - the queue was quite long. We were rushed upstairs and left with the menu. 20 mins later, we asked to be served; they were and... More

Relatively cheap and being Dutch I consider that its only plus side. The staff wasn't friendly and kept itself busy with everything except the customer. We had the carpaccio and spinach salade for starters, the both were soaked in oil, as was the lamb bone, depicted below. I don't recommend this restaurant as it is more a fast food place... More

I don't personally like more upscale places like this - white tablecloths and all that. The food however was great and we all left with a smile on our faces.

Good menu for under €20! Three courses including a drink, nice food but so crowded you cannot expect very fast or friendly service. Even had a waiting line outside!

My wife and I were recommended to try out this restaurant and we did not mind the atmosphere, but were not impressed with our food experience. We wend for dinner a couple of weeks ago, when we were in Barcelona and we had booked in advance, given that the tourist season is obviously there with lots of visitors. We would... More

We both ordered the seafood platter which was only 24 Euro. The plate was piled high with at least 6 different kinds of seafood. The waiter was very helpful explaining what each type of fish was, as some were unfamiliar to us. We were offered a bread/tomato plate, which is like bruschetta, but without the cheese and basil. The plate... More

Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
