We happened to be in Barcelona for a champions league match with our two boys. We wanted to take them somewhere with atmosphere to watch the match. This establishment embraces Barca to the max! Loud Barca anthems, bell ringing and clapping! Even played Freddie mercury 'Barcelona' seconds before the match started! It was very very busy, people packed in with... More

This was our second visit to Barcelona and we were looking forward to visiting La Taverna again. I have never come across a bar that has such a unique atmosphere - with friendly staff, good choice of drinks, food, sport on TV and live music every night - it is the only bar we visited during our stay - you...

Great lively atmosphere if your wanting to watch the local game. Food is a variety of pub style grub or tapas. Can get really busy so get there early or book in advance.

The food came fast. That was the only positive. Extremely mediocre and overpriced. Standard tavern food that really was bland... my chicken burger looked like an industrial-grade chicken patty that was cooked in the microwave.

La Taverna is ideally situated right next to Catalunya square. With live music on 7 nights a week, from 10.30 onwards, it truly is the place to go if you want a bar with a lively atmosphere, great music and most importantly not get ripped off with expensive drink prices. It's the perfect way to end a day of sightseeing... More

We were staying nearby and wanted a meal out close by after a very tiring day sightseeing. It was a great little find. The welcome was genuine and we felt right at home straight away. There is a good selection of beers on tap and plenty of cocktails on offer. We sat in a booth and had a really delicious... More

All staff were very friendly and on top of things. The food was straight forward pub food and good pub food at that. They also had tapas and paella. The environment has a very comfortable feel to it and can see it being a popular and fun place. Will return.

This cool irish-style pub is the ideal place for having a ton of food (at a very convenient price), great live music and some beer! Also, if enjoy watching football in company, it is a very good place to choose.

We wanted a straight forward bar with decent food and this place was ideal. Beer at a good price and the food was some of the best pub food we've had.

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
