Very hyped - but great food.

Lovely tapas place that was recommended to us by 3 different people. No bookings, so turn up, queue up, give your name and you will be told how long to wait, (we had 1hour to 1 hr 15 mins), so we went around the corner to another bar to drink as the bar area in Cerveceria is completely packed... read more

Two years have passed since we visited Cerveceria Catalana, and we were only hoping it had not changed. It is still a bustling, lively place that serves excellent tapas. The service - ironically the same server we had two years ago - was quick, polite, helpful - delivering a delightful meal. Our only regret was that we couldn't sample everything... More

CC was recommended by my cousin's son who studied in Barcelona. We read the reviews about the long wait and decided to try lunch. Even though the restaurant was packed and people waiting, we were seated almost immediately to our delight. Ordering tapas can be complicated because you don't know the portion size and they can vary from generous to... More

Sit at the bar and point to what you want. Be sure to ask about the tapas of the day. Get there early as it gets crowded.

Ate hear four times during our stay. Very crowded even at 1700 but worth the wait. Helpful, friendly staff. Most of them speak English. Reasonably priced. Four tapas to split is enough for a light dinner. I recommend the following: Papas bravas, mushroom risotto, roasted red pepper eggplant and goat cheese torte, and the beef tenderloin baguette.

We had a late lunch here at 3pm. Place was buzzing and the bar guys are great entertainment. Food was delicious and fresh. We just selected from the cold tapas on display. Wasn't let down. Can see why this place has great reviews!

Grab a drink and settle in for the wait because it's well worth it. Everything is fun and delicious about this place including the location. We had the brie croquette, and tostas with beef and scampi (just to name a few). We do not eat pork and there was still plenty to enjoy. Get the croquette. The waiter was happy... More

Cerveceria Catalana is a great place, one mingles whether at the tables or the bar. It has a great menu with great diversity and reasonably priced. It is filled with tourist, but it is not a tourist trap, far away form it; it's one of the best selling restaurants in Barcelona. For us service was more than adequate, the food... More

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
