“Nice place to go for tapas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2014

Hi everyone, I was unpleasantly surprised by a couple of the last reviews and now I have the impression that we are talking about different places:) In the Bar Picasso I have recently been there are the tastiest tapas I have ever tried, low prices and excellent service, and add magic atmosphere present at the Plaza de la Merced...If you want to spend some good time and enjoy food and drinks and friendly environment - you should definitely land at one of the tables in the open air, don't hesitate to ask the waiter for advise (that is what I did and I was more than satisfied with the option I was offered).

“Don't be fooled by its recommendations”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2014 via mobile

This was very touristy, u pay a lot for the space to sit in the city centre but I highly don't recommend u to order anything to eat. It's really not worth it. Very poor food and it became expensive cuz u really can't eat it. I can't believe that we got fooled to order 5 plates of tapas, we could have started with one but when u are a tourist your stomach is always hungry ;)

“Trick and ...Trap.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2014

The trick is very simple: when reading the menu, a lot of tapas are available, each for 2.50 Euros, at the foot it's written that you can profit by 5 tapas for 10 Euros. Basking in the sun is not really reading all the terms and conditions of an insurance contract and it's actually a mistake.
Ordering each, 5 tapas, we could check that no one could profit by the attractive 5 for 10 Euros.
The waitress as soon as she is called brings the evidence: only the Chef's choice of 5 tapas is given for 10 Euros: who is fool enough to be confident in the Chef's choice, ready to deliver potatoes, surimi, every unsold item.
Since we are not glad with the trick, another waiter shows us "free of charge" the other trap: one draught beer for 1 Euro (and less readable: a narrow hours window for conditions)
Welcome tourist in this workshop to decipher the Picasso tricks and traps.!!

“Food is very poor”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2014

So many good reviews that we thought it would be good. The menu is uninteresting and the food is even worse.

“Cheap and touristy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2014 via mobile

Picasso's is a bar aimed at tourists. The drinks are pretty cheap and the location is great. But don't bother ordering food, it's poor quality and there are better options nearby.
