“Excellent Restaurant in Gracia”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

We had a great experience on 2 different nights at Salambo. Everything from the Sangria made with Cava, to the tapas and wine were all oustanding. But the absolute best part of the meal was the stone brick grilled veal medallions that you cook right at your table. Some of the best veal I have ever had. We topped it off with great deserts including terrific gelato. From beginning to end, the meal was delicious. And the prices were very reasonable, especially for the quality of the food. And the quaint atmosphere of a local place in the heart of Gracia, just made it even better. It was so good, we went back a second night. This is not a touristy place at all which we loved. Go, relax, and enjoy some amazing food where the locals go.

“Lovely Food so so service”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

HHmmm it always annoys me when i receive great service and not great food or wonderful food and so so service. We liked the look of Cafe Salambo so we walked in on a Saturday afternoon while wandering Gracia. There were four people in our party and the staff didnt particularly assist us with being seated. We sat in the middle area and joined two small tables together at which time we were given a "stare" by one of the waiters who wasnt busy and continued to not serve us. We decided to stay because food on the other tables looked great and the cafe had a lot of locals dining in it which is always a good sign. We are glad we stayed, the food was great. We ordered a variety of tapas and the quality was very good. I would return to this cafe and hope that the staff were just having a one off bad day.

“yum!”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

We wandered the Ville de Gracia neighborhood and chose this place on a whim and were very happy. It's not a cheap place, but we had a delicious meal on the patio of: croquette de Jamon, tuna tartare, and a lovely steamed bacalao with tomato jam. It's also a great area to wander around.

“Great Restaurant!”
Reviewed May 27, 2012 via mobile

Cafe Salambo was pretty close to our hotel, so we stopped here and sat outside our first night in Barcelona. This was our first dining experience here, and it couldn't have been better! Everything we ordered was awesome, starting with the mixed salamis and traditional toasted bread rubbed with tomato, olive oil, and salt. The wild boar was also a keeper. Definitely give this place a try if you're in the neighborhood!
