Cerveseria Catalana Tips (12)

CERVESERIA CATALANA: MOST TASTEY BAR/RESTAURANT IN BARCELONA

For about the last 10 years, we only have one favorite tapa bar/restaurant, we take our friends, relatives and specially for ourselves. It is called CERVESERIA CATALANA.

THE COMPLETE ADDRESS IS:

CALLE MALLORCA NUMBERO 235
CORNER RAMBLA CATALUNYA.

If you were to take the metro. Take the GREEN LINE / or Linea 3 and get off on DIAGONAL. WALK 3 BLOCKS TOWARDS THE WATER.
WHEN YOU GET THERE YOU CAN ASK FOR WILLY OR WHOEVER THE MATRODIE MAYBE ON DUTY SO THEY SEAT YOU RIGHT AWAY.

AMONGST OTHER MANY FAVOURITE DISHES: ARE: SOLO MIO (A TENDERLION BITING PIECE WHICH IS SERVED IN A BITING PIECE OF BAQUETTE AND A PIECE OF PATRON. OH! IT'S SO SUPER DELICIOUS.

THEN WE ALSO LIKE AND ENJOY ORDERING : PULGO GALLEGO: THIS IS TENDER OCTOPUS WHICH IS BOILED . IT IS SERVED IN ROUND WOODEN PLATTER, THEN SPRINKLED LAVISHLY WITH PAPRICA, OLIVE OIL, AND THICK SALT...WOW! IT MELTS IN YOUR MOUTH, SUPER DELICIOUS.

THEN BE SURE TO ORDER PAN CON TOMATE, IT'S VERY TYPICAL AND ON THE SIDE ORDER PATATAS BRAVAS...ANOTHER TYPICAL...APETIZER.

PLEASE DO NOT FORGET THOSE YUMMY CROQUETAS, THEY ARE JUST IRRESISTABLY DELICIOUS.

REMEMBER, EVERY THURSDAYS IS PAELLA, SO, THAT YOU CAN EXPECT IN GENERAL, MOST RESTAURANTS SERVES PAELLA AS FIRST PLATE....

BON APPETITE!!!
WE HOPE WE WERE ABLE TO HELP YOU AND WE WISH YOU HAPPY TRAVELING!!!

Cerveceria: Avoid getting ripped off

This restaurant is ideal if you want to have a quick breakfast before you start your day. They have a very good choice of baguettes in the morning and they normally also serve an English breakfast. English breakfast portions are very small so don't expect much. You only get one sausage and one strip of bacon and for the price, I don't think it's worth it. The English breakfast comes with a glass of tea or coffee and orange juice included. In the morning, the waitress that is normally on duty is very helpful and can understand a little English.

We walked by this restaurant a couple of times because it was very close to the hotel we were staying at and we noticed that they serve tapas in the evenings. It's normally packed too, so we decided to try out their tapas. We were greeted at the door and we asked to be seated to try the tapas. The gentleman at the door decided to send us to the first floor when he realized that we weren't local. We were greeted by a very nice seemingly old chap who sat us down and gave us a totally different menu from what we had seen when we first entered the restaurant downstairs.
Here, on the first floor, they served much more expensive food like steak and grilled fish. The prices were outrageous. When the old chap came to our table we told him that we wanted tapas and that tapas were not on the menu he had given us. He said that they served other food here and that if we don't like it we could just leave, which is what we did.

To summarize, going there for a quick breakfast is just fine, but don't be fooled by their gorgeous display of tapas.

Favorite Dish Bacon and Egg baguette

CERVESERIA CATALANA: FOOD IS SCRAMPTOUS, ECONOMICAL, EXCELLENT SERVICE

This bar/restaurant is one among 3 or 4 tapa bars which is located in just about the same area where Cerveceria Catalana is located. To us as well as to our relatives, guests and friends or even acquaintances, their opinion is it is the best tasting tapas, montaditos, Galician style on octopus and even that yummy appetitive artichoke, it certainly is the winner amongst all bars/restaurants in Barcelona. It is normal for us to have our meals out at least 4 times or more a week and indeed anytime there is a newly opened bar/restaurant, we happen to be raising and try and see if it can compete with Cerverseria Catalana. Aside from their tapas, montaditos and their selected food happens to be the fastest serving and as cost of food, it is slightly higher about approximately 0.10- 0.20 cents in euros yet the croud till 1:30 in the morning does not reveal the added costs or mind a slightly higher price.

We had taken our guests as well as relatives to other tapa or montadito bar/restaurants, but non of which will equal the magnet of these place…it probably also has to do a lot with the environment and the system of this bar/restaurant serves like a speed stylish serving.

At least on each side of the long and opposite table/bar serving, you will notice at least there are 150 kinds of tapas, on one side you will notice the seafood and the opposite side of the table/bar tapas made of meat, veggies as well as the desserts. When it comes to beer, do try the clara which is a mixture of lemon and beer! Wow! Try it during a hot summer day and it can refresh you as well as your mind, it’s so soothing and so refreshing.

Below are some of our favourites:

Favorite Dish Solo Mio with green pepper, various tortillias, stuffed bell peppers, those large fresh clams with sprinkled fresh lemons, bacalao (these are those salt cod with mashed potatoes, fava beans with mushrooms, moorish zucchini salad, deep friend boquerrones, gazpacho, their black paella as well as their normal paella which is served during lunch hours on Thursdays, the way they cook and prepare the ZARZUELA, (Catalan fish stew) it's just super good you owe to taste it at least, gambas al pimenton (paprika shrimp). Then let's not forget to finish your meals with the typical dessert, Catalan burned cream (Crema Catalana). It's easy and fun also to prepare Crema Catalana.

CERVECERIA CATALANA: Simply the best tapas

That was amazing, I came here with a group of colleagues and I simply have had the best tapas I had ever eaten! Highly recommended!!
The place was packed but the waiter were still quite friendly...Definitely A great memory, if I ever go back to Barcelona, that will for sure be in a very good position on my todo list.

Cerveseria Catalana: Do try this place

The name can be translated as the 'Catalan Beerhouse' - reason being that you will be able to enjoy many different local and international beers here (with fantastic tapas).
It is quite a big restaurant/bar and very popular. The bar is only about 100m from the hotel where I stayed - and I never saw this place not packed.
Service is good and friendly! (and quick!)

Favorite Dish Everything we had!

Cerveseria Catalana: Tapas!

Cerveseria Catalana was opened several years ago with almost no money by an ambitious guy, now this place is extremely popular and he has about 6 restaurants in Barcelona. It is a touristic place unfortunately, but still you can see some spaniards there as well. They serve tapas, flautas (some kind of sandwich), salads and small dishes. We had gambas, mushrooms, patatas bravas, goat`s cheese, octopus...everything was really good. Crema catalan looked very tempting as well, haven`t tried it though. They have a huge choice of international beers. The bad part about this tapas bar is, that you can`t make any reservation. Only if you are already there, they write down your name and you can expect to wait about an hour to get a table (at least at weekends). You won`t get bored though, just get yourself a drink, outside are standing loads of people drinking and smoking and you can do some people watching in your waiting time :). Tapas cost about 4 EUR each. It is also a very noisy place, it is probably not the right location for a romantic dinner à deux :).

Cervecería y tapas Alex: Beers in Plaza Real

Good atmosphere in a square that until the middle of the XIX century was a monastery requisitioned by our then Queen Isabel II.
It is located next door to the flamenco show “Los Tarantos”. (The flamenco show “El Cordobes”, in the Ramblas, is much better than “Los Tarantos”).
On Sundays, in this square, there are lots of stalls selling coins, stamps and rare items for collectors.
Today, there are only beers bars, a youth hostel (too expensive!) and two nice street lamps designed by Antonio Gaudi in 1879.

Favorite Dish Tapas and beers.

Cerveseria Catalana: Tapas!!!

This is a very pretty restaurant, it's a bit more elegant than the common ones..The typical TAPAS with new creations are available..you can choose food from the buffet and order for your table..nice athmosphere, you can choose your table from inside or outside..kind staff...
The food is good, great variety..You can find things to eat at every price..So, worth to try it. Great variety of beers..Cerveceria means beer place by the way...
Only bad point is that here is very popular and there is always people waiting outside..so better to go early:)

Favorite Dish Tapassssssss!!!and Montaditos...montadito: toasted bread with different things on it...like a little pizza.. salad ones are very light..also chicken salad is interesting..
