My husband and I came across Matalaranya while walking around Barcelona. The restaurant looked so welcoming and the menu was very interesting. The waitress was so nice and she suggested a few dishes. We chose the BOMBA, chicken croquettes, Pumpkin Soup with white chocolate (crema...de calabaza), ensalada tomate along with beer and sangria. The BOMBA was absolutely amazing! Everything we ate was delicious, nicely presented and had wonderful flavor. The service was excellent as well. We would definitely recommend Matalaranya to dine at and will return there when back in Barcelona. Thanks for a great dining experience!More

We came to Matalarany as our second choice to another famous restaurant nearby that was overbooked. We walked into an empty place at around 10:00 a little apprehensive, but were quickly made comfortable by our waitress. She made us feel comfortable (spoke English and Spanish)...and even gave out preferences of the food. I was going to order something and she suggested no to because it wasn’t that good, and confirmed my second choice as “an excellent choice.” Boy it was. We had the pumpkin soups, Steak Strips, and the Mushroom Risotto. Everything was delicious. As we ate, locals came in who seemed like regulars. We really enjoyed our stay and have it marked as one of our favorite places to eat in Barcelona. Most definitely will be back next time we’re in the areaMore

Was walking around where me and my girlfriend chanced upon this jewel of a cafe/restaurant. Ordered the Iberian ham with bread, lobster ravioli and the paella. A very pleasant experience.

Walking to our tour of Sagrada Familia, we stopped for a light breakfast. They were still busy opening but promptly sat us and made sure we felt welcome. A simple meal of fried eggs and potatoes was delicious and filling. The coffee is strong and...the conversation friendly. Well worth the stop.More
