“Superb!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012 via mobile

I love eating here, and in Warwick you have so many choices.

When I dine out it's all about the package for me. Location, service and of course quality of food. At Catalan you get all three.

I love the intimate and cosy atmosphere in Cafe Catalan, the subtle lighting and candle-lit scene is perfect for romantic meals or just a cosy night out. I would happily eat here with my wife or with a group of friends, I've even enjoyed drinks in the heated and sheltered patio garden in Autumn. Tapas is the order of the day here for me and is served up until 7.30pm, evening menu until close. The wines accompany the food very well and I have never been disappointed with the food from the resident chef. Perfect venue for a light business lunch and live entertainment can sometimes be found in the evenings. Malcolm the owner always makes himself known and is very much passionate about his restaurant. The staff are so good and special mention must go to Emily who is literally a ray of sunshine. Fabulous to be served by someone so clearly happy to do so, a far cry from students in high street chains.

Like tapas? Like food? Like a good meal? Then you must pop into Catalan, it's a little gem.

“Agree with the others”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012

Going through Warwick on my way back to London where to eat, where to park? Ended up by accident outside Catalan, give it a try, hungry and tired. We sat down and looked at the menu interesting, then ordered tapes. We discovered that that part of the menu finished earlier, however the staff bent over backwards to help, and found all we needed. Food Great, Service Perfect, Price Good, in fact all really very, very good. I only saw the trip advisor recommendations on the way out, but would have to agree with all who have given them top marks. If you are in Warwick then go to Catalan!

“Nice Spanish food, not bad prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

Just back from a meal with colleagues at Catalan, good quality food with all 9 of us happy with a variety from tapas to steak, would definitely recommend the pork and beans, with its belly pork and black pudding and the mixed dessert is great if very rich.

Thanks for your feedback. Large parties are always challenging and we work hard to make sure that food quality and service meet the values that we set for all customers.

Hope to see you again soon.

“Another great dining experience at Catalan.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

This restaurant always lives up to high expectations. Enjoyed a fantastical birthdate treat last Friday. Our shared Chateaubriand was delicious and incredibly generous in portion. Can't wait to return for another great evening.

You kept your Birthday quiet didn't you! :)

So pleased that you ordered the Chateau. As I mentioned on the night, as we buy in our Fillets whole from our local butcher Rumps of Warwick, and then use for Filet, Medallions, Carpaccio and Puntitas (tapas) we can't ALWAYS offer the Chateau but ask - because it truly is special!

Great to see you both again.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2012

We eat from the tapas menu and each item was well cooked and presented. The food was of good quality. The service by the young waiting staff could not be faulted. There was a friendly buzz without being over noisy.
