We were sent here by my mother. It is a lovely part of Barcelona with tree lined avenues. Similar to Paris. The first night we went we had no wait and arrived at 7.30pm. The table was near the entrance and the air conditioning was very high. The food is tapas and went down well with everyone. They do mini... More

Even in the middle of the week in February the place was crowdy. Better to come early. However tapas are simply fantastic! We did not tested the wine but simple beer. Great place !

Returned 3 times to Catalana in 6 days. Need I say more? It is well priced and has seriously AMAZING tapas. Loved all of the dishes we had and enjoyed the buzz of the cafe. Do sit at the tapas bar, pick your dishes...and sip sangria.

This restaurant was recommended by the hotel. We didn't have to wait for a table and were seated outside. The waiter was very helpful. My husband wanted to try some traditional tapas and we asked for a selection as a starter. Big mistake. We had several plates of ham, cheese and tomato bread plus some garlic mushrooms. It was nice... More

This was recommended to us on our first day in Barcelona and if we eat like this every day I will be a very happy bunny indeed! Don't expect to walk in and get a seat, we arrived to be told it would be about an hour but there is an alternative. Hover behind people at the counter and when... More

Absolutely delicious tapas and Spanish Chardonnay. Prices not exorbitant and very friendly service. Fairly long waits, but worth it; you can generally find a seat at the bar while you wait. This spot was recommended by a tour guide and the recommendation was spot on.

The place is quite hip and trendy with friendly service. Since this place is hip and trendy you have to wait for a while to be seated. Perhaps reservation... More

This restaurant is open 0900 to 0200 everyday. I went on a Sunday evening at 7pm. We were told there was a 20 minute wait for a table for 2, but we only ended up waiting 10 minutes. The food was delicious and had many Catalonian specialities on the menu. I would recommend the crunchy Camembert and mini hotdogs. Also... More

It was a battle of wills but we won!! We waited an hour and five minutes to get a table for 2. We were told we'd have to wait 20 mins so relaxed with a drink. An hour later we were getting frustrated as it seemed the queuing system was a bit chaotic. Food was delicious but they really tried... More

My girlfriend and I went based on a recommendation. It's a nice spot with cool decor, tasty food and lots of selection. Only complaint was that the service was mediocre - waiter did not seem interested in being there in the slightest, we ordered dishes that never showed up (though they weren't on the bill either). Go for the food... More
