Having come to Caravelle to experience what from the reviews said would be a fantastic dining experience....this is not what happened.

The staff were disorganised, rude and completely unprepared for having a full restaurant and seemed to be more interested in the people looking at the menus outside the restaurant that the customers they currently had sat down.

It took 20 minutes to even get a drinks order and even then the latte that was ordered sat on the side of the bar for 10 minutes before my partner decided to go get it herself at which point the waitress was rude and said she would finally bring it over....shame the latte which may have looked pretty was tasteless, watery and cold.

The food was salty and over seasoned lacking any of the taste you’d expect from a full English, instead tasting more like herbs than anything else.

I will not be recommending this restaurant or returning. They need a new chef and waiting staff that are better trained and understand what it is to provide good customer service.

Hands down one of the best brunch places in Barcelona, not too far from La Rambla. The staff are very friendly and the food is delicious! You will want to get there pretty early as the restaurant does fill up fast and the queues can get big. I had their own version of eggs benedict and my husband had rancheros. we will be coming back here - highly recommended

Spent 3 days in Barcelona, the two mornings we had breakfast we came here. We have never had a breakfast as good as this! The food, service, location was absolutely brilliant! The staff were so welcoming and attentive. The first visit I ordered avocado on sour dough with poached eggs and it was incredible, my partner ordered the brioche with the pork and poached eggs! Oh my days! It was out of this world. We came back the following day and both ordered the brioche with the pork. If only we could find breakfast this good in the uk! Superb little place! I’d fly back just to come back here.

Amazing place with amazing food!!!!

Place was off the main road a bit but was quietly and very nice.

Wife had The Full Spanglish and the bacon was delicious, and different, almost sweet. I had the Rancheros breakfast and that was a delectable combination of food!

The cappuccinos were delicious and the service was outstanding.
