I was there during their Saturday night rush. We didn't have reservation but managed to sit on the bar (you don't need a reservation for that, just be patient and wait until someone leaves). We really enjoyed the experience of sitting at the bar, we kept ordering more and more dishes and received guidance from the lovely bartender/server who was... More

Its worth the 20-30 minutes wait. Even thougj this Spanish restaurant is owned by Filipinos, the produce, ham and all other ingridients are CLEARLY authentic Spanish. There is a great variety of tapas and wine. We had the Bacalao with honey montadito, as well as the classic ham and manchego plate. Pan con tomate and croquetas. All simply amazing.

After tried several tapas restaurant in Barcelone, I have been recommended to go to the Cerveceria by a spanish colleague. Honestly, the best tapas in Barcelona I have eaten. Choice is wide with tapas difficult to find elsewhere. But they are victim of their success and, as they do not take reservation, you have to choose the right time to... More

After I greeted the manager friendly, he chose to look me in the face with no acknowledgement or greeting. Were lead to a table where people are squeezed in like sardines even though there were empty tables. One good not help but hear every word people sitting on both sides at other tables, were saying. Server more like a sergeant... More

Went with locals as an introduction to one of their favorite tapas places. 15 mins or so wait at 7.30pm. The overall dinner took a long time (two rounds of tapas and dessert), but it was fine because we were with friends. The food was delicious - we let them order so ended up with some surprises and new experiences.... More

Busy, but well worth a wait! Nice bar area to wait in for dinner table. We had to wait 30 min but had some wine and tasty tapas while waiting. Restaurant busy but nice and friendly service and really good tapas. Wine was excellent and setting modern and relaxed. Go there!

We'd read that this place was popular, that's an understatement. It took two attempts to get it first time the wait was an hour and a half, the second time we went a little earlier around 7pm and waited half an hour, but it was worth the wait. The food is delicious all freshly prepared and it all arrived quickly.... More

This restaurant was fun if a little busy. We had to wait an hour for a seat but went to a local bar in between. Even though top rated on Trip Advisor and obviously busy because of this it was still fun and felt local. In fact we sat next to a local person who told us what to do... More

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.
