... and another food-post ;-)
As you might have noticed, two days ago I posted about one of my favorite restaurants in Barcelona. The thing is, since yesterday there is one more favorite added to my list!
Cerveceria Catalana is the name of my favorite Spanish tapas restaurant in Barcelona (still my hometown, only for two more days). I have been to many tapas restaurants before but this one was really special to me.
Cerveceria Catalana is located in the centre of the city so a perfect place to go after a day of shopping! (metro: Passeig de Gracia). Address: , Barcelona.
I have to admit: before yesterday I had never heard about this place. Two friends of Laura and me told us that we had to go there before returning to Holland. They told us we definitely would love the food here, and that was so true!
The first thing I noticed while entering was the large amount of people in this tapas bar/restaurant. Make sure you arrive early because the restaurant takes no reservations! We arrived at 19:30 and had a table at around 20:00. I can recommend not coming at around 21:00 or later because then it is totally full and you have to wait quite long for a table!
The atmosphere in this quite large restaurant is really nice and casual. Besides the many inside tables they also have a very nice terrace to enjoy not only in summer but also perfectly during winter (it is not as cold as in Holland ;-))!
And about the homemade food... because thats why we actually went there ;-). Well, I think the pictures above speak for themselves but the tapas in this restaurant is really amazing! I really loved the gambas! It is a pity that I didn't know the existence of this hotspot before, otherwise I would certainly have gone more often. The value for money is very good, yesterday I paid €22 for a glass of wine and a lot of food! And the staff does not seem to be Spanish but they definitely are and so does the food!
I am curious; has anyone of you every heard about Cerveceria Catalana? If not and you will visit Barcelona soon: try to experience this piece of the Spanish culture!
