Lunch at Santa Caterina market

We went there for lunch after visiting Santa Caterina Market. We sat outside as the weather was nice and ordered our beer and a few dishes. Food was great but the service was a little slow. Inside looked lovely as well and I would try eating inside next time I'm there.

We were waiting at the bar area with at least 4 other couples, but were targeted by the barman who demanded we order to stay at the bar area - no other couples had ordered anything and were not asked to. Service in the restaurant was consistent with the bar area (i.e. grumpy and inefficient waiters) - and food was... More

A very cosy place, inside the market of Santa Caterina. It offers a wide choice of different tapa sized and main dishes, classified in a tasty matrix by themes (rice, meat, vegetables, fish, ... ) and differen kitchens (mediterranean, asian, ...). I can highly recommend the grilled vegetables with cheese, the trio of tomatoes and the mushroom raviolis. Great atmosphere,... More

After several hours of sightseeing, this was a perfect stop. We had guzpacho and several rice dishes - all excellent. My wife had two of the fruit drinks - while not cheap (4-6 euros each), they were awesome!

Everything is freshly prepared and immediately served. It's especially nice to sit at the bar where you can see cooks in action.

Choose this bar for some beer and tapas as it had a good look to it and was full of people, as there were no seats spare we sat at the bar and ordered our tapas.Attracting the attention of the staff was a task in its self, they were very busy and had no time for even the most basic... More

Food here is good. Very different from the regular Barcelona tapas places which I liked a lot. Portions were nice size and overall tasted good. The service here however is horrendous. No one pays attention to you even if you stand in front of them for 10 minutes saying excuse me. Be prepared to wait for your food and ask... More

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighborhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighborhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
