Excellent tapas in a very popular restaurant

We just had a Saturday night dinner at the Cerveceria. We arrived at 8:30 and their was a 30 minute wait for an outside table. So we bellied up to the bar in Barcelona fashion and had a few drinks and tapas while we waited. Once the table opened up and the food arrived we were glad we decided... read more

We were divided on whether to eat here because it was in the heart of tourist land - but as I was so hungry and fancied pasta we decided to go for it. It was nice to eat outside in the sunshine but the service and the food were both disappointing. Firstly we ordered bottle of white wine - it... More

Always has a queue outside - very good tapas menu & efficient service, tables inside & outside plus a few counter seats, We went twice around 8 & had to wait 15 minutes, but when we left the wait was up to one hour. If you're staying in Eixample don't miss it - lively atmosphere and efficient service including in... More

We went there by the recommendation of our tour guide, she mentioned that for dinner is better to get a reservation in advance. We were there for lunch and didn't had a problem to get seated. We tried the eggs with potatoes, the montadito de jabugo and the assorted tapas plate, all of them were excellent. Service is pretty good,... More

So good we ate there twice in a 3 day trip. Every single tapas was delicious. Go during lunch as it will be less crowded.

Stopped in for lunch with concierge's recommendation. Big place and they churn out very good tapas. Not the best we had in Barcelona but still very tasty and well done. Would go again and recommend.

I go to Barcelona often to visit my family and friends. When somebody asks me about 5 places to go when they visit Barcelona and want to try some good tapas, I always recommend this place.

we've been to this restaurant several times - mostly, when someone from abroad comes to visit and wants to try local tapas. the variety of food is very broad, sangria is delicious, and place is nice in general. they also have a terrace so you can sit outside. the only thing is you have to wait, there are no reservations...

A short walk from Passeig de Gracia this is a solid bet for quick tapas bites at lunch away from the tourist hoardes. Frequented by lots of locals as well as tourists, get there before 130pm otherwise very very busy. Wait times normally no longer than 10/15 minutes in any case. Really nice selection of tapas with fast and efficient... 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.
