This is by far and away the best tapas restaurant in Barcelona. Eat at the bar where its lively and fun, and you can see the dishes - pick and point if your spanish is as bad as mine. The food is simply the freshest and best quality. It also has to be the best priced place in the city... More

It's easy to over-hype a place but I have to admit it's justified in this case. The Maitre'd was welcoming and unassumingly left English menus as she directed us to our table. The waiter spoke fluent English (and Japanese to the 2 young girls who sat on the table next to us!) and helped explain how to order even suggesting... More

The CC is a very clean place with very nice people. The food is decent and delicious. We went a bit late and had to wait almost 1,5 hours to get a place. Of course you can go have your name written on the waiting list and stroll around. OR you could grab a drink and bite and eat outside,... More

Every dish is delicious. You must eat it once arriving in Barcelona

I really liked the food here. Tried a fair few things and everything was delicious. I did find the staff a bit snooty though. They weren't horrible but they just seemed pretty cold. The cava based sangria is highly recommended. It's much nicer than your usual sangria (which we also had). Their Iberico jamon is awesome.

Great food, the only thing is that it takes time to understand their portions. For some items the price was ok for the portion but for example I ordered the hamburger and it was a bite size for almost 4 euros waaay to small, then the paella tapas plate was enough for one person and it was 5 euros, therefore...

5 of us decided to stop here for Sunday lunch/brunch. When we arrived the place was very busy and we were told it would be about a 40 minute wait, but much to our surprise and good luck, we were seated in about 5 minutes. The tapas and service was excellent. We enjoyed the meal with a bottle of cava.... More

We had dinner here yesterday (a Saturday). As expected it was full and crowded. Your name is put on a list and we heard we had to wait 40-45 minutes. So we took a stroll around the block, had a drink at a bar and came back after 35 minutes. Indeed there was a table for us after almost 45... More

Had our dinner here on our first night in Barcelona. It was suggested by our local tour guide when we asked for a place where the locals go. Place was packed but certainly worth the wait.

Forget the doubters, this place is great, provided that is you like olive oil, garlic and lemon. The throughput of food is frantic so everything is freshly procured and freshly prepared. They keep it simple so the quality of the produce is emphasised. We must have had seven or eight dishes, every one a winner. Also the prices are extraordinarily... More
