My wife and I were meeting an old Spanish business friend for lunch and he suggested Pitarra as we wanted something traditional. After a muddle over the booking which was very smoothly ironed out we sat down to eat. The menu is quite wide with a very typical Catalan cuisine. Little tasters of tortilla, pan y tomate and olives came... More

I arrived early in the evening for dinner and was the first one there due to custom that the Spanish/Catalans have for dining later, but the staff were very gracious and inviting. I was treated to a nice amuse-bouche before my appetizer of grilled asparagus. The asparagus was fabulous; plump and tasty! For my main course, I had the turbot... More

My fiancé and I had dinner at Pitarra twice during our 5 day stay in Barcelona. The food is authentic Catalan, full of flavor and soul. The building itself used to belong to a clock-maker; his pieces still adorn the walls. It makes for a really warm and inviting atmosphere. The staff were incredibly welcoming and hospitable; they made fabulous... More

The baby goat and stuffed partridge were superior. I would say that the paella is not their best dish but it was acceptable. The Sangria was the best we had in all of Barcelona and the house wine was incredible. The garancha vinegar, really what an exquisite tast. Our waiter was awesome and helped not just with the ordering and... More

In a street clambering for tourists attention, this is a more elegant option with a varied menu. Not tapas but real dining with cloth napkins and tablecloth. Cosy and calm. Food is good and plentiful.

We have reserved a little table through TA in advance. In due time we have come and the waiter has politely seen off us to him. The situation is very pleasant. We have ordered a squid and a duck leg of Konfi - it was super! The paella was the most expensive dish, but hasn't impressed at all. Desserts too... More
