Tapas tasting could be better, if there is one place you want to give tapas a try cerveceria catalana is the place to go. it can get very busy so we went around 3 pm for a late lunch and sat at the bar.

This place was recommended to us by one of front desk staff at our hotel. She said it was one of her favorite places and slowly started becoming more popular with tourists. We came in around 11pm and it was pretty packed! We got lucky with a table outside immediately, even though there seemed to have been a wait. It... More

Conveniently located near the Modernista highlights, just a short walk from Passeig de Gracia, the extensive menu offers a wide range of delicious tapas. It's a large modern restaurant, quite different from most of the tapas places we tried but the tapas were as good as any we ate elsewhere.

Avoid the touristy places and head to this restaurant. It's where the locals eat. Wonderful food. Great people watching. Will definitely return when I'm in Barcelona next! I love great tapas.

We made sure we had lunch here based on the extraordinary number of reviews! The tapas were generally excellent, ambience was quite modern and the service was good too. Enjoyed the fried white fish, garlic prawns, crem catalan etc. Perhaps my bar was set very high by Paco Meralgo (see my other reviews) and/or by the number of reviews, but... More

I tried to eat there on a sunday night, and had to give up due to the long waiting list. Came back in a weeknight and had excellent food in a nice environment.

This place is busy, but if you're patient and just relax with a drink while you wait for a table then you won't be disappointed. Very well run service, we were advised it would be a 40 minute wait and it was only that. Patrons were spilling out onto the pavement with a drink while waiting and it was a... More

Our hotel was on C/Mallorca, so we passed this place several times and saw it was ALWAYS crowded. We figured it must be pretty good, so we decided we'd brave the crowds and try to get a table. We must have waited about 45 minutes, but when we finally got seated, out on the terrace, it was absolutely worth the... More

My wife and I ate at the Cerveceria Catalana and liked it so much that we went back the next day to try the tapas we had not tried the first day. These are some of the tapas we tried both days: 1. Bacalao llauna 2. Tortilla de patatas 3. Pimientos de pardon 4. Calamasrcitos malagueños 5. Croquetas 6. Chipiron... More
