Line ups of tourists for very mediocre food in a lacklustre ambience. Don't get what all the hype is about.

The food was really nice and I didn´t really think it was that expensive. Staff could have been more friendly. Busy place!

by the same group that is managing Ciudad Condal, the usual very long queue, so I suggest going earlier than their local dining hours. good food, friendly staff, worth it!

I am in love with their food. Every time visiting BCN I go there at least once. Try "huevos cabreaos" - the best dish on their menue.

We were in Barcelona for 5 days and this was our 'last meal' for this trip. It was as good as the best we had. Amazing tapas with a great selection of seafood and pintxos available. This is rare as most bars either were mostly specialist in one but not all three! Creme Catalan was outstanding. Place was packed but... More

Catalana is an absolute must in barselona. I had been there for several times and still asking for more. Only thing which may be annoying to newcomers is definetly the waiting over an hour in catalan rush hours. (Between 21-22:30) Have a drink and enjoy the waiting list on street. Give a try for almond coated goat cheese and catalan... More

The tapas is outstanding!! And we askes for a table outside. The time for waiting inside was > 2 hours. Outside we just waited for a couple of minutes and the service while having dinner friendly and quick.

The long waiting line tell us a beat about the food, every minute of waiting worth. This tapas style restaurant has plenty of great curses. The mushrooms with asparagus. Prawns were also very good. We have a bottle of suvinion blanc 'Mania' which is very suitable for the sea food. One of the best tapas bar in Barcelona

We went here twice,once at midnight to have some tapas and the next time to have dinner. The first time it was nearly empty, second time we had to wait for an hour to have a table (take a drink and prepare yourself to queue). The tapas are really tasteful, give a try to calamaros (deep fried), awesome!

Yeah, it is crowded...but if you have patience you get a table in 30minutes maximum. You can look for a seat at the bar (which) I recommend because you can see what you order. The situation at the bar is "first come, first served" so the "game" of finding a seat is all yours, you do not rely on waitress!... More
