Tapas place I want to make revisit. You get good service, especially if you order a bottle of cava, sit on the counter. Place is in the noisy street, but it just disappears as you start eating. We had marvelous waiter, kept the bottle in cool and filled the classes as needed. Took us long time to finish our tapas.... More

We don't know what the fuss is about. In our opinion, Cerveceria Catalana is a bit of a tourist trap; mediocre food, at a fair price though. We went to Taller de Tapas afterwards.

Tapas was on my mind when I arrived in Barcelona for Holiday. Later on I asked the Reception at the hostel, where I can have the best tapas in town and they told me to visit Catalana. Because it was only 10 minutes walk from the hostel, me and couple of friends decided to give it a try. It was... More

My wife and I ate here twice. The food was very good, the service was prompt and professional but the atmosphere is similar to eating in a tornado. The place is huge and most tables seemed to be occupied for less that an hour meaning the staff are constantly coming and going. I looked at some of the negative reviews... More

Great tapas. We went to around 8 different ones and came back to this one 3 times. The last 2 at the bar which was the most fun. Better service sitting at the bar. VERY popular with locals and tourists...Have the razor clams and the white anchovies I love them...

The tapas is delicious, the atmosphere is good, prices are very fair. A place to experience. You might have to wait to get a table.

I tried a few other places during my stay which were all good but I think this is the best of all. Thanks for excellent tapas.

Whenever I have friends visiting or I feel like eating quality reasonably priced tapas I go to Cervecería Catalana. It is opened non stop but if you go at the Spanish lunch or dinner times be ready to queue, waiting is worthy though. You can only book if you are minimum 8-10 people. There is baby chair and changing room.... More

This restaurant was highly recommended to us by one of the locals we met in Barcelona. We were warned that there is usually a long wait for a table at night. We were lucky that we arrived relative early so we got a table right the way. When we came out there was a long line up. Obviously a lot... More

Really enjoyed everything at this place. The pine nut camembert with jam was my favorite. The fried squids were also excellent. I wish I had more time there to try every thing they have!
