“Tasty Mexican!”
Reviewed July 6, 2012

We visited Margarita Blue whilst in Barcelona. It can be a little tricky to find but worth the walk. Despite what some other reviewers had said, The food was very nice. We had Nachos which were tasty ( a little to much cheese however) and Fajitas which were delicious as everything was cooked perfect. They are more authentic then "tgi friday style". The cocktails where also good value and pretty good, compared to some of the overpriced cocktail bars in barcelona.

“Better bars in Barca”
Reviewed June 23, 2012

My boyfriend and I visited Margarita Blue based on Trip Advisor recommendations however it didn't live up to them. Although the cocktails were tasty and worth the money (we paid 7 euros for one drink which was about average), the place itself was dark and shabby, almost like a cafeteria. There was no atmosphere at all and the seats were incredibly uncomfortable. We went to other bars which were in close proximity to this, and they were much nicer.

“Delicious burgers and fajitas”
Reviewed June 22, 2012

We visited this place based on good recommendations here on TripAdvisor. Some reviewers had noted that the portions here are small, so we were prepared for that and ordered nachos, potato croquettes and breaded mushrooms for appetizers. Only to find out that we wouldn't have to: my Margarita burger was delicious and big and my wife's chicken fajitas were good, hot and spicy (she ordered them with jalapeños).

We were pretty stuffed after our meal. I wouldn't in any way call the portions small. They are not huge, but in my books, just the regular size and what you would expect.

“Pleasant food, but not worth searching for”
Reviewed May 19, 2012

This restaurant is a bit of a walk from the Gothic District, but based upon the reviews we thought we'd try it.

Overall, it was OK - not great but not terrible either. I suppose the phrase would be nice but nondescript.

There is a wide selection of cocktails, which seem nicely presented. However the food was a tad bland for mexican food (I suppose in line with spanish tastes). The restaurant itself was quite chic in a cafe sort of way.

Not somewhere I would personally rush back to but some people may like it
