We had lunch at the restaurant in the Santa Caterina Market. The place looks very inviting and open, and has a great busy atmosphere. We had the suckling pig dish which was very good. Very tender and flavour full. But we also had a noodle paella which was very bland and could have used a lot more flavour or maybe... More

This little cafeteria style restaurant was a pleasure to visit today. We ordered 3 dishes ... squid with asparagus topping, grilled vegetables with cheese, fideua (pasta with seafood) ... all yummy but my vote goes to the squid and pasta. There are many menu options and a great place to visit. I would highly recommend a visit to this local... More

Cuines Santa Caterina has a friendly atmosphere with its open space and large tables, and a varied enough menu to accommodate every taste (a matrix between the base ingredients and the type of cuisine). The quality of the food is high for a restaurant with so many different dishes on the menu. The service is generally good, although the fact... More

The food is one of the better memories of the many visits to Barcelona! Great fideua!!! The juices are something to remember and the decorations helps to put it together. Only point to improve: service

Didn't really understand the menu but they had a lot to offer. I went at around 23:00 and it was still busy. Our food arrived quickly and was nice. I wouldn't say it was the best we've had on our trip so far but worth trying if you aren't sure what you want as the menu has a lot of... More

Right next to the market. Good tapas but some dishes run out early! I may go back and try the fried artichoke and tuna takiki next week. Beef carpaccio w foie gras was ok. Patatas bravas was great! The restaurant operates differently from the tapas bar and outside seating.

One of favourite restaurants to visit when in Barcelona. The food is excellent and prices are very reasonable. The restaurant is well laid out and service has never disappointed. One piece of advice, they don't take table reservations so you may want to come prepared to have a drink and some light tapas at the bar while you wait for... More

I like this place, it's a restaurant inside the santa Catarina market. On the weekend can be crowded. The food is great, maybe the price is a bit high but is worth it. The service is always very nice.

To my immense disappointment the restaurant had ran out of tuna tataki, my favourite tapa anywhere in the world!! However they almost made up for it with the deep fried artichoke! It's a lovely restaurant we've eaten in many times. This time, just tapas and beer. As always it was very good and a nice pit stop after browsing the... More

Neighborhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighborhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
