Recommended. There are lots varieties of Tapas but not able to try it all as just 4 of us. We have asparagus in the pot, looks cute and interesting. Baby squid and tacos which recommended by the Matrix (server) absolutely taste great. Gambas not too...bad too. We have Pulpo, Iberico Ribs and Black Paella for main course. Pulpo is not to my liking and the iberico ribs probably need a little more salt and pepper to make it better. The Black Paella is a must order, Matrix told us this is their signature and no regret ordering this. Big portion and full of flavour. Best to serve in a big group else it can’t be finish by just 2 person. We have fun celebrating birthday here and enjoying the happy hour for beer. Staff are attentive and thanks Matrix for the food recommendations. Overall satisfying meal and I repeat black paella is a must order.More

Delicious baby squid and tapas. Olives are amazing. Cava was unexceptional. Outdoors seating is available.

Food is good with interesting selection of drinks. However, during order we were told of the price of the cocktails which is much lower than what we ended up paying for. Better make sure to check the correct price and and number of shots that...are put in the cocktails before confirming your orders. They tend to give you double shots without informing and bill you later. Check your bill before paying.More

Good food here and reasonable value.. however our evening was spoiled when we received the bill and extra beers were added. I had this problem before here last year so I made a point this time with my wife of writing down exactly what we...had. 4 extra beers were added to our bill. In fairness the items were removed when we told the waiter. In summary keep track of what you drink and eat !More

Mercat offers an authentic modern and gourmet Spanish cuisine for an affordable price. The Paella is the one and only in town and love the chorizo lolipops. A great place for an unique experience.

The restaurant is located at the road facing side of 1MK Mall. Parking was aplenty at the basement, and parking rate was very reasonable at RM2 per entry after 6PM. The restaurant has a relatively large al fresco dining area, a smaller indoor dining area...with a full size bar, and a mezzanine floor with private dining. The food menu was exciting, with a very decent all-Spanish wine list. We were told that their bar specializes in gin based cocktails, but we did not try any. For tapas, we tried the delicately shaped Patatas Bravas, crispy Croqueta de Pollo, peculiarly textured Berenjena Asada (almost like a purée consistency) , cold cut & cheese platter, tomato toast, wonderful baby lobster, sea-smell laden Arroz Negro, and our meal ended with the excellent medium rare Txogitxu beef. One thing I like about this restaurant is that staffs there were friendly, accommodating, and well trained. Whenever we tried to reach out for the wine bottle in the ice bucket, one of the waiters would rush to our table to offer pouring service. The 2015 Amor Loco rosado from Montsant DO (recommended by the waiter) went pretty well with all our dishes. Dining at Mercat Barcelona was a great experience. Food was excellent, and the service was almost impeccable. We would surely return again.More

Fabulous meal, great service, long drinks menu (specially spanish wine references and gins) and great imagination and expertise. The amazing executive Chef, David Caralt, knows and loves the spanish and catalan food and he works in his kitchen in the most advanced and innovation technic...cooking mixture with the mediterranian tradition. Good music and good vibes. From the start to finish you are in a constant state of awe and wonder. Mercat is a present for sensesMore
