Terrible 'restaurant' in a pretty location. Food awful - we had a mixed tapas selection, 5 plates for €50, this consisted of lukewarm croquettes, Spanish sausage, potatos, aubergine and calamari. Around 3-4 couples came and sat down at tables for drinks next to us, the...More

Foget it, don't even drink there. Food was old and awful. The bar men unhygienic and the prices even for the rambla stupendously high! In two days I didn't use that much money as one meal in la zarzuela! It is just not worth it!

Please avoid this restaurant or bar even if you just want to have a drink. 30 euros for two beer and the service is just terrible.

Although the food was decent- yet over priced - it was the service that ruined it. They make a living from ripping off tourists. They don't provide a drinks menu on purpose so when you get the bill you have a heart attack. I paid...More

Stay away from this place. Horrible food and very expensive. This is for real. The location is nice but don't be persuaded. Had a glass of coke for almost €8. Had a mixed salad and the tomatoes are really awful.

One of the waiters was very pushy and almost insisted we have a starter. We just wanted cheese and jamon which was ridiculously expensive. The paella lacked taste (I could do better) and it cost 90 euros. One waiter did pack the remaining cheese and...More

We looked up and down the Ramblas for a reasonable priced meal for a family of 4, with food our kids would like. We selected this restaurant based on the fact that meals appeared to be a reasonable price, and the food was family friendly....More

We had a couple of drinks at the terrace of La Zarzuela at the Ramblas. It's an excellent place to sit and to look at all kinds of people passing by. Street artists do their work and we enjoyed the scenery greatly. Good place to...More

La Rambla
Barcelona's most famous street was once a dry
riverbed. Now, La Rambla is a 1200-metre boulevard,
and a major draw for visitors. During the day, La
Rambla fills with pedestrians, some of which stroll
past impressive human statues and artists while others
take a break to people-watch while enjoying a drink at
one of the many terraces. Housed here is the iconic
Boqueria Market that offers one of the most varied and
