“Really enjoyed! ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013 via mobile

Just got back from the Barcelona Zoo. Really enjoyed it, spent about 4/5 hours there looking at all the animals. The otters were proper show offs and the turtles were making love at the time and had us laughing for ages. Unfortunately all the big animals were sleeping (lions, tigers, panther, leopard, bears, hippos and rhinos) but you could see most of them. The dolphin show was good fun and is incusive in the entrance fee, definitely worth a watch. Mu boyfriend and I are animal lovers so it was a day well spent.

“Great day out but avoid eating there at all costs!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

The zoo is set out well and provides a great day out. The sea lion show and dolphin shows are very good and well worth going to. However avoid eating here the food is diabolical and expensive with long waits and the table area is infested with pigeons that constantly swoop down to eat the scraps. This area is very poorly managed and most unhygienic with pigeons on the tables. We didn't see anyone cleaning the tables. This put a real damper in our visit

“A day at the Zoo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

A well cared for city zoo. An interesting collection of animals, includes a few of the big guys, but good to see a range of different alligators and crocodiles. A good eco display in the childrens area. It was December and some things not on offer such as animals displays but still the animals were lively - the chimps seemed to be having a great time.

“Not really impressive by American Zoo standards”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

Short and sweet. There are alot of things to do in Barcelona besides this. The animals seem to be collected from the streets around the zoo.
