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

The place looks cool and beckons you to enter. Hopefully you don't get stuck in the little room beyond the main dining room however. They were in a big rush and got some of the wine orders wrong and forgot to put out silverware. These little things start to add up. The food was just ok. Decent squid and padron... More

We found this restaurant quite by chance while we were out for a stroll around the back streets of the Gothic Quarter. The 1st thing you notice about the place is the interesting selection of items on the walls from the many clocks to the many paintings and pictures. Then you are struck how friendlyn and welcoming the waiters are.... More

I went to have dinner here all alone, expecting that I wouldn't be that welcome on a Friday evening being a lonely guest. So I was really surprised when the owner invited me to have a look around in his restaurant, while he explained me the origin of all the clocks and watches and ancient photographs hanging on the walls....

This restaurant is anything but stylish. We had expected discreet lighting, perhaps Catalan instrumental music and tasteful decor. Pitarra is overlit, plays American pop and has a motley collection of items on its walls. To cap it off (sic), one diner wore a hat throughout his dinner. It's that kind of place. The food is not bad, however. We had... More
