I usually don't walk into a restaurant without first reading up about it online, be it on TA or otherwise. However, I was hungry and had already been going round and round within the Old Town and when Pitarra showed up in front of me (with a strong rating of TA in the window, no less), I decided this would...

Excellent atmosphere and superb food in a restaurant so proud of it's family tradition. If you want excellent cuisine at extremely reasonable prices look no further! Thank you for a lovely night!

My sister and I ate here last month when we were after some good paella, and it delivered. Great location if you have a time constraint. A great alternative to tracking down good paella in Barceloneta. The cozy atmosphere was a nice respite from the hustle and bustle of Barcelona. We had a long late lunch, the wine our server... More

An impromptu decision to try this restaurant was well rewarded. The understated charm and a waiter that took time to talk about history of the restaurant, but was not in the least obtrusive. The food was authentic, tasty and great sizes.

This is a well established place, it has placed Michelin Mentions and various award stickers on its window. The service was great nothing to complain about... The decor is reminiscent of perhaps a more Eastern Block European. We were interested in the menu it looked promising. Duck with Chestnut casserole and wild asparagus. My fiancée has char and caramelized onions.... More

We walked into this restaurant a bit on the early side since we had just travelled from the US and still had jet lag. It was quite empty and we thought we were perhaps taking a chance (read further why it was empty!). The waiter greeted us at the door and asked us to select the table that suited us... More

It's an old school restaurant with some interesting history of the place it's located. Ask them about the room above and all the clocks! We had a pretty early dinner by Spanish standards so it was not difficult to get a table. We had some grilled squid and the valencia paella and also some white rioja. The service here is... More

I ate here 6 years ago and was keen to visit again. The service was excellent and the food very good. I'm no expert but it felt like a lot of the food was quite authentic Catalan cuisine. The portions were very generous and I felt it was good value for money. We were given a complimentary shot of something... More

I went to PITARRA as a Farewell dinner for a group of Americans u was touring with! I was pleased to find a place that looked traditional but bit stale and with known familiar dishes with a modern twist! We had a paella and it was lovely, I can't wait to come back and try some of the nice dishes... More
