This popular modern tapas bar attracts a very mixed crowd, which comes here after movie shows at nearby cinemas. Choose from fillings for your tapas like grilled prawns, deep-fried squid rings, patatas bravas (spicy fried potatoes), toast spread with anchovies. Various types of Montaditos (tapas served on small slices of bread) are also available here. The place can get crowded easily so plan your visit accordingly.
The best tapas bar in Barcelona. We went there four times in five days! A must when visiting Barcelona, a fantastic atmosphere if you like the hustle and bustle of waiters running around and people coming and going combined with great tasting tapas. The ouside cerveceria is recommended if summer.
I have recommended Ciudad Condal to many of my friends and they have all agreed with me that this place Rocks. First of all, it's in the middle of the hustle and Bustle of Barcelona. The tapas there are excellent in taste and presentation. I recommend eating at the spacious tapas bar or getting a seat in the dining area (get there a bit early to get your party on the list). The place had tall ceilings at the bar area, and dark wood with a classic yet modern feel. It's a fun and casual atmosphere, yet attracts an upscale crowd. I went there three times in one week and I forgot how the service was because I was having so much fun! It was easy to get a seat until about 9:30pm, then it got packed! This was a good thing as the atmosphere was condusive to meeting other locals and visitors. I tried a few other tapas restaurants while in Barcelona, but they seriously paled in comparison.
I'm living in Barcelona and I can assure that this place is the place to have tapas. As well as Cervececria Catalana (C/Mallorca) it has a wide variety of plates, tipical from the region, and an extensive beer menu that makes the experience a great one! I recommend it with my eyes closed; as a former tourist and a current local!
