The atmosphere of the place is nice, with live music and friendly service. However, the service was quite slow. The paella was incredibly bland, although one area of the pan had chunks of salt. To make matters worse, we were charged twice for the paella....More

Bad service, false advertisement. Barcelona offers many nice places all around the city. This one is truly not worth a try - it is awful.

The atmosphere of the restaurant was very chill. They had a wide variety of tapas to choose from. I recommend the the unlimited tapas deal for 10€, it was the worth it. Everything else on the menu was too pricy.

Visited the Caporal with friends, tapas were ok, staff were super friendly which is always a major positive, the restaurant itself had a great atmosphere, but sadly we found the food average, worth a visit though and make your own mind up

Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this
picturesque neighborhood is the very heart of
Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days
under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War
with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and
authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be
thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas
brought to life by the many small bars and local
