This restaurant has a wonderful patio with great Spanish food. They were sold out of fish so we had filet mignon which was perfectly prepared. It was great value in a quiet, upscale neighbourhood setting.

We happened to walk by this restaurant centrally located in Providencia but off the main commercial district - and it looked so cute. A very nice outdoor area for tapas, a nice dining room and a brass sign with their name, Centre Catala, embossed. It turns out the sign is the best part of Centre Catala. The food was simply...

Tapas and paellas. Plus the usual fare. Delicious, well-presented, food. Our favorite restaurant for special weekday meals. Of course, tapas only until 8PM, but they are substantial and can easily be combined to make a meal for those of us who can't waint until 8 or after.

This place has recently changed hands and undergone a total overhaul, including the kitchen. Although it still hasn't quite found its soul yet, and the interior is slightly antiseptic, the food, service and general affability of the place more than makes up for it. Do come back - highly recommended!

A converted house but modern inside. Food was delicious, calamari starter and Ossobuco main course were well prepared and presented. Service efficient and friendly.

If you can stomach bad service your stomach is in for a treat. The plate was really well executed, but the waiter was never around for bringing drinks, and I had to ask for toilet paper when going to the toilet, because there was non.

In short: the food was terrible and the service unorofessional. I have eaten quite a lot of tapas in my life and this is by far the worst experience I have ever had. We had the sharing plate, and my boyfriend agreed, it was greasy, had no or bad taste and was very unsattisfying. When that is said I have... More

It was a disappointing experience yesterday at Centre Catala. I was so looking forward to a meal there. I had read great reviews in the past and checked out the place & its menu a few days before. We arrived and were offered a table after a bit of a wait. We preferred another. It was 25 minutes before we... More

I ask if my option will bring mash potatoes or if I need to order separate. They told me that it is part of my option, the restaurant was empty but took forever to bring my plate without mash potatoes and other waitress tell me that it is not part of my option. I ask if they can bring it... More

Restaurant Centre Catala is really a standout for the authenticity and quality of their offerings. My guests all were delighted with the menu and the wine list was reasonable in cost with a good selection. Parking at night can be a problem.
