“Fresh tapas by the Santa Caterina Market”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

In a cavernous, barnlike space abutting the Santa Caterina Market, itself an attraction near the Plaza Cathedral, very fresh tapas of astonishing variety are served at family-style tables with an excellent choice of Catalan and other Spanish wines. Tour the market, then stop in to eat. We visited Christmas week, when the space was fragrant with pine trees and boughs. A delight.

“Great!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013 via mobile

It was a coincidence that we found this place and what a positive surprise! Enough choices but not too much. It can be crowded so sometimes you have to wait a while or you can sit at the bar which ostensibly also quit fun as you can watch your own food being made. Last but not least, a very reasonable price.. We paid €38 for two dishes, one dessert, two glasses of red wine and a bottle of water.
So if you visit Palau the la musica, this place might be your next stop?!

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013 via mobile

Really loved this place, had a selection of courses ranging from Chinese cuisine, Spanish tapas, Italian all in a 'tapas' style of small portions to share. All completely delicious, and a nice bottle of wine to wash it all down. In the end cost 55 euros for two. Well worth a visit!

“Splendid place in a wonderful location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

I was in Barcelona recently and in such a city you could eat twice a day for years before knowing all the good places!
So I was fortunate to be invited by a friend to discover this place.
The location is in the the charming Market of Santa Catarina.
Decoration wise, it is a stunning place with multiple bars and a "biblioteca".
The food is absolutely fantastic from Tapas to main dishes we shared a lot of stuff and enjoyed every single of them.
I would certainly recommend the restaurant and would surely go back there when in beautiful Barcelona next time.

All the best
Stephane
