“Cracking value, great tastes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2013

Don't be put off by the brief almost brusque translations of the menus and the rustic setting. Excellent food, helpful service, good recommendations. Eggplant, patatas bravas were to die for. Good wine recommended by waiter. Would definitely visit again.

“Not cheap but worth the money!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2013

First time in Barcelona so wanted to enjoy some proper tapas. Hotel recommended Bar Del Pla and booked us in...definitely worth booking in advance. Very friendly place, excellent multilingual staff, very good wine (recommended by waitress) and the food was excellent. Potatas bravas was superb didn't know a potato could be turned into something that nice. We had 4 dishes which was perfect and looking at all the other dishes being served everything looked as good. It's not a cheap pit stop, 70 euros was spent in just over an hour but would definitely go back...excellent.

“Favorite Meal in Barcelona”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2013

This place was one of the best places we ate at in Barcelona. Not only is it quaint with friendly servers, the food is simply amazing! We didn't have a reservation when we arrived, and the server we spoke to apologetically told us it would be a 30-minute wait for a seat at the bar. We agreed and ordered a drink while we waited, only to have him return and tell us that he found us two seats at the end of one of the tables! We ordered several tapas from other friendly servers, all of which were delicious - potatas bravas, baby squid with chickpeas, tomato bread and more!! It was a lively and boisterous atmosphere and was a great time. Loved every bit of it and would definitely return on our next visit.

“Good Tapas and more”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

If you go at lunch time ask for the menu. They don't show it unless you ask. Sit at the bar for a great scene. We had a great salad among other things.
