Cerveceria Catalana, excellent tapas

This place is awesome, it has a wide variety of tapas from simple to complex. All are A+. The service is great, the waitresses are all very nice. There is a wait to sit but quite short.

Several folks recommended this restaurant so we anxiously tried it out on our first afternoon in Barcelona. The food was good, service was fine, drinks were fine as well. Nothing really stood out, except the razor clams. However, having razor clams twice later, I realized that the clams here were simply not very well prepared. So, overall, I'd recommend looking...

I wasn't entirely impressed by this restaurant. It was very crowded and packed with tourists. The tapas were decent, particularly the anchovies and eggplant. The waitstaff wasn't the best, they forgot one of our orders. The patatas bravas was nothing to write home about. The sangria was delicious. But not worth the long wait.

This is a great spot. The food is flawless and the sevice excellent. Only down side is that everybody knows this and it's extremly busy. An hour and a half wait is the norm at peak times.It is worth it though. Reasonably priced too.

First, the place is not very good looking, there is no style; second the prices are a bit high for the value, third, the tapas are boring and not all of then are actually good; maybe if it's your first time in Spain, they can be ok, but after some weeks here you can compare and say that the food...

This was our first tapas restaurant during our trip to Spain and overall was very good. It was really crowded at lunch time with apparently mostly local people. Basic, non fancy tapas but all good...

Best tapas I have had so far during the trip! We went on Sunday the first day we arrived Barcelona. Because Sunday most of the restaurant were closed, but they open until midnight. We seated outside nice atmosphere with good service. Only problem was too many people waiting, we went on for lunch the waiting time was acceptable. Their seafood... More

Enjoyed a variety of local dishes between 7 people, and we each paid €23 including drinks. To try: - Boquerones - anchovies in vinegar - pan con tomate- to eat with anything -pimientos de Padrón - green grilled peppers that look like jalapeños but are NOT spicy at all! -patatas bravas- traditional Spanish fried potatoes with a garlic sauce -croquetas...

Excellent food and service. If you get there after 8pm, expect to wait about 1/2 hour or more, but if you go just before 8pm, no crowds.

At lunch time, you'll probably need to wait a little before a table comes free but it's totally worth waiting. There is unfortunately not much outdoor seating but the staff is very friendly and the food is delicious. Every tapas we tried was absolutely stunning. We strongly recommend you the following: prawn screwers, anchovies, Russian salad, pasta salad, patatas bravas,... More

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
