After reading all the positive reviews on Tripadvisor, we had high expectations. We were not disappointed! Best tapas ever! We decided to let our waiter choose all the dishes and wine. We had the equivalent of a great 'Tasting Menu'. Highly recommended!

We booked the restaurant after looking at the tripadvisor reviews and they did not disappoint. The evening got off to a great start with the irrepressible Leo in full flow. Although I mention her by name the waiter who also served us was equally charming.
One of the recommendations was for a slow cooked pork dish of the cheaper cuts. Quite excellent. As indeed was everything we ate including the bruschetta.
Definitely a restaurant for anyone's list on a visit to Barcelona. Good value too with the most expensive wine on the list at just EUR22.

Went there with my girlfriend. We were quite early and had the complete attention of Cleo - the best waitress we ever had. She indroduced us the menue and gave some useful advice. Her english was far better than expected. Food was awesome and the white wine came with some ice in a silver cooler. All in all the best food we had during our stay in BCN. Go there, enjoy and try the salmon with mango and parseley

Food was amazing really interesting take on classic tapas dishes.
Restaurant has great informal feel, very good enthusiastic waiter, and most friendly front of house.
If you are in Barcelona you must try to book a table here.

We had the enormous pleasure of visiting Bambarol for dinner in January 2014. We walked from our hotel in the Gothic Quarter - a very pleasant stroll of 25 minutes or a short, very cheap taxi ride.
The dinner at Bambarol was THE BEST tapas meal we had in our 22 days in Spain; it was simply magnificent.
We arrived without a booking to find it full at only 8.30, clear evidence of it's well-deserved popularity. A table was found by the lovely Lou on the understanding that we would be finished by 10.30 when is was booked; no problem for us and a delightful outcome.
We feasted. Each of the dishes we ordered was great; superbly presented and wonderfully tasty. Not a flat spot in any of the 7 dishes we tried. Sensational salmon; tasty anchovies; incredible lamb shank pattie; crisp salad; great potato bravas - it was all superb.
The wine we had was a 2006 Honderas at Euro 19.5 it was exquisite and incredible value.
Service was outstanding and really friendly.
In 2015 we will be back to Barcelona for a conference and I have already lined up enough friends to book the entire restaurant; can't wait!!
Bambarol is fantastic - not to be missed and unreservedly recommended.
