Cerveceria: "Avoid getting ripped off" Cerveseria Catalana Tip by Xeriss

Cerveseria Catalana, Barcelona: 12 reviews and 21 photos


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.
