“Good Tapas and Excellent Sangria”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2012

You have to be ready and willing to let go of any nutrition, health or diet plan for that day. the crab salad is a yummy (lots of Mayonaise) and the Tapas are delicious; the squid, Goat cheese with Aubergine, Shrimp, Grilled Squid.
service is good, and some of the waiters speak good english, if you are a couple, sit at the bar and watch the food; if not, try to be seated downstairs which is better than the upper deck.
one last advise: the meal has like 100000 mg of Sodium, so have lunch there or an early supper; make sure you are hydrated afterwards ( you will need 2 liters of water later).

“Exactly what we wanted”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

On a recent trip to Barcelona, we ate tapas at Ciudad Condal twice. We ate both inside and outside. Both are very nice, but I prefer outdoors when the weather is good. The menu was extensive and the wine list was very reasonable with a nice selection. Our waiter was very helpful in explaining the different types of tapas. We really liked the jalapeno peppers in sea salt which were actually mild. Definitely order the bread to go with your tapas.

“Great food and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

We had the best tapas so far in this restaurant. Everything was really delicious. Our waiter was helpful and charming. Try the crispy cheese sticks, it melts in your mouth. We were there with 2 kids and they enjoyed it a lot too. There was a 20 minute wait but it was totally worth it. The total was very reasonable too.

“Lots of choices”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012

The best part of Ciutat Condal was the menu. It was larger than most other tapas restaurants. In the main our experience was okay, not great-not bad. I can't say the food was any better than other popular tapas restaurants we tried.

The service was professional, with an accommodating attitude that was a welcome change from most of our encounters in Spain.

I would say Ciudad Condal is a good example of a tipico or traditional restaurant.

So if you are close, go and enjoy, but if for any reason you are unable to get a table or make the journey to Ciudad Condal don't worry that you have missed the dinner of a lifetime. You may have a better meal elsewhere.
