“Good food in the tourist area.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

We went here on our last evening in 2012, and decided to go again this year. Although this is in a tourist area, it is a popular eating place with the locals also. We had no problems getting a table, either on the Friday or Saturday night. Service is efficient, and the waiters will recommend something too if you're not sure. The food is good, although not spectacular and portions are reasonably sized if you are ordering a few different dishes between two or three people. We drank Estrella both nights so I don't know what the wine wold be like. Will definitely return next year.

Busy in the afternoon; couldn't sit outside; 'menu' was excellent and reasonably priced; fast and efficient service; crowded, but not uncomfortable; I would return.

“Brilliantly cooked tapas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

Rambla de Catalunya is known for its many restaurants, most of which target mainly tourists. La Bodegueta was a great surprise. The food is excellent, the service is good and the staff is nice. It's really worth a visit on your visit to Barcelona.

“Good place to eat - friendly, bustling, authentic!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

We ate here two nights running on a 4-day trip to see Barcelona's Gaudi sites. We couldn't have found a better place. Although staying near the Sagrada Familia, this was just a few stops away on the Metro and we got a table instantly both nights - arriving about 7.30. Although Tapas is an Andalucian style of eating, so not native to Barcelona really, this bar did it well. Helpings were generous and the wine plentiful and cheap. I especially enjoyed the Pimientos de Padron, small green fried peppers with about 1 in 10 giving a real burst of chilli heat.

“Very good tapas, nice spot, a few more locals than other places”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

A very busy spot, similar to Ciudad Condal you can get on await list and they will call you for a table. At a busy lunchtime we only had to wait about 15 mins whilst perched inside with a beer. It's small but has an outdoor area that is roomier. Lovely paella style rice which was freshly made, and other standard tapas - pan Catalan, surtido Iberico. Very tender octopus. Waiters are lovely, professional and friendly despite being hectic! A very enjoyable meal, good value for money and good to see that locals come here as well as tourists.
