I am a frequent customer of this spanish restaurant. Very clean, great food and nicer owners. Cristina is the owner and chef of the restaurant. She is from Barcelona and she cooks really great. This is the only place in Guatemala that has original sangria. Try as many dishes as you can. They are all good.

Always welcome customer. Best Spanish restaurant in city. Especially I love their pan con tomate (courtesy). Their foods are good. My favorite is Arroz Negro which is paella with squid ink. They can beat the food in Spain(I'd been in Spain). The owner is so kind too! Super recommended.

I enjoyed a delicious lunch at The restaurant. High quality, fresh seafood, cheese and jam. My favorite dessert crema catalana was wonderful. I recommend it.

We enjoyed a night out with friends here at the restaurant. We were attracted here because of the offering of Spanish Paella. I tried it and found it to be very good. There was a good selection of seafood including mussels and shrimp, as well as some pork and chicken. Given that I lived in Spain for 2 years, I... More

I was in Guatemala City for a school accreditation team visit in February and the host school recommended this wonderful restaurant in the vicinity of our hotel in Zona 10. For many of us, it was the culinary and atmospheric high point of a week of good restaurant eating in Guatemala City. Cristina personally welcomed the 13 of us. Our... More

Barcelona has ample parking, spacious seating and attentive staff. We love to go with the whole family and everyone has a favorite dish. The black risotto is excellent

I went there with friends because I read that the suckling pig was great and wanted to try it. I frankly did not think it was great , average at best. My friends all felt the same way. The chicken croquettes were tasty. The calamari tasted well but was a little bit tough. The wine list is very good and... More
