“Waiter seemed pretty stressed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013 via mobile

Unfortunately our waiter seemed a bit stressed. He did not take the time to take our complete orders ashe flew by a couple of times. The food was delicious, although the stressed waiter gave our son a blue cheese hamburger when we asked for a cheddar hamburger. The corrected burger was uncooked and we had to leave it.

“Great food, great atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2013

Went to Bar Seco on our last day in Barcelona and the menu was a very welcome change from a week of tapas. Best patatis bravas in the city. The atmosphere was not at all touristy, but the waiters were the friendliest in the city. Definitely recommended.

“Absolutely Delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2013

I ate at Bar Seco last week and have been DYING to go back ever since! The Patatas Bravas are the best I've had throughout my stay in Barcelona and I finished my quinoa burger within seconds. All of the other meals looked delicious, unique and catered to everyone's food desires. Even better, the food is local and organic and tastes fresh. The atmosphere is relaxed yet vibrant and the staff are absolutely delightful. As a tourist, I haven't found a bar that has made me feel as comfortable and at home as Bar Seco did. Definitely a must if you travel to Barcelona!!

“A must in Barcelona!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2013

I just got back from having a meal at Bar Seco and I can say hands down that it is the best food I've had in Barcelona to date. They put a completely new spin on Patatas Bravas and their vegetarian menu is to die for. All of their food is organic and totally local. The atmosphere makes you feel right at home; the staff is some of the friendliest you'll find. I will without a doubt be coming back for another meal. And don't forget to stay for dessert!

“This bar is ACE !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012

Bar Seco can act like a magnet on you ! When you walk up Nou de la Rambla on your way to Montjuïc, you don't expect to come across this gem. Food is organic, excellent and the prices are very correct.(note that in the center you will eat organic food at a higher price)
Starting at 15:00, the sun appears on the terrace and as the neighbourhood is quiet, it is a pleasure to lunch, tapas or just have a coffee.
Cook, waiters and bosses all fit perfectly there and give the place all its soul.
Definitely my favourite bar in BCN !
