Don't waste your time and rush to this place. The taste of "Pulpo a la Gallega" is just to good to be true cooked to perfection. Now on more serious topics...if you happen to be a "Croqueta" connoisseur....the bechamel...ham flavor and cooking technique of this...More

I enjoyed both of my two visits in Bar Celta. The variety of tapas is impressive, the prices are not too high but the problem is they don't give you any specific menu - the tapas are written on the wall but for me it...More

This place was quite crowded and a bit small but the food was very delicious and we enjoyed a lunch here. The place was recommended to us by a tour guide. We ordered a mix of tapas for 5 people for cca 10euros per person.

We found this by accident, not inspiring on the outside but the 'Polperia' above the door caught our attention. Excellent tapas, with an unbeatable speciality of Polpo Gallega, the most expensive thing on the menu but well worth it. Otherwise prices very average. We went...More

El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
places that live and breathe such exciting energy
regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants
