We’re from Barcelona and we didn’t know this place and we have been gratefully surprised. The staff are helpful and dedicated and the food is really good- everything we ordered was amazing. The chef, Carlos, came to our table and offered us vegetarian options and...he was really pleasant. We definitely recommend Casa Varela.More

Many places in Barcelona are of this type. Here service is kind and food of quality. Prices are acceptable and atmosphere slightly different from usual, frequented by local people which usually is a good sign

I came across this little gem while staying for a few nights at the nearby Marriott Renaissance. While the dining space is a bit cramped inside, the food is excellent, prepared with care and pride by the very friendly and English speaking Tony, who clearly...has some serious skill in the kitchen. Focus is on regional cuisine with the freshest ingredients, a decent and fairly priced Spanish wine list. Fish, beef, lamb and wonderful appetizers and salads. Outdoor seating is pleasant, be patient! I ate here twice and am still thinking about the mussels in red curry, the best I’ve ever had. Muchas gracias Tony for your outstanding food and hospitality.More

We ate here as it was recommended by our Air BnB host. It did not disappoint, the food was absolutely incredible in both taste and presentation. Everything is served as a sharing plate, allowing you to savour each dish. The staff were very friendly and...hospitable. The price was very low compared the quality of food they deliver. Highly recommended and worth traveling out of the centre for.More

I entered to this restaurant by chance just arrived in Barcelona. We arrived late at 10.30 pm and they told us they will still serving food. The vibe was cozy yet elegant and the personnel extremely polite and helpful: we had a lovely tuna tartare,...sirloin filet perfectly cooked and very good dessert. The price was totally reasonable for what we ate. A really nice unexpected surprise especially given the many tourists traps of cities like Barcelona.More

This restaurant is in Plaza Molina and has a modern and pleasant decor. The menu is fairly standard tapas with some main courses. The wine list is limited and biased towards expensive options. On the whole we thought the food prices were on the high...side given portions and quality. We ate there on two nights and found the service to be rather patchy. On the first night the water seemed to be overstretched and we had long periods of waiting even though he was scurrying around. The second time we went, a different waiter seemed to favour guests at certain tables in terms of his attention, and again our experience was slow. The food was adequate, though one disappointment is the house version of patatas bravas. This dish had sauces squirted on to the potatoes. They had the consistency of fast food restaurants and did not taste that great. It's a nice environment and the food is ok, but you can do better nearby.More

Overall it was not that bad. However I must say their vegetable risotto has a very strong and unpleasant flavour and the waiters seem to be really unhappy. The only good thing about this place is that I find it quite cozy.

Appeared to be a nice neighborhood place with locals. Had several dishes. The croquettes melted in my mouth, the tacos were heavenly and cheesecake topped it off. Bill was a bit on the high side. Service was excellent. Highly recommended.

We had dinner here last night. It was very expensive for the level of the place. It’s classic tourist trap, a jug of Sangria was €20. The portion was very small for the price. Definitely avoid and try another place!

Had dinner late so mostly locals at the restaurant (their normal dinner time is 9:30ish). Food was good enough if you are in the area and need a place to eat but certainly not a destination restaurant. Tripadvisor reservation indicated the restaurant was full but...we stopped by anyway and found outside seating straight away. The interior space was completely empty all night (on a Sunday).More
