Restaurant review #169 – Barceloneta is a vegan tapas bar, at the beach area of Barcelona (the area is called ‘la Barceloneta’, hence the name of the tapas bar). We visited a couple of weeks ago, on a cold and Wintery afternoon (yes it was cold with a blistering wind at the beach! not the image one has when thinking of Barcelona 😉 ). So we were glad there was a vegan bar in the area, to warm up!
Barceloneta is a rather small place and is a bit dark. There are two rooms, and each have an entrance door (to different parallel streets). The menu has several exotic sounding cocktails, sangrias, a great selection of tapas, and also burgers.
We ordered these:
- Mona Lisa cocktail (with white wine and mint) 8€
- Dianna cocktail (with rosé wine) 7€
- vegan ‘calamares’ rings and tofu croquettes, each 7,95€
Drinks and tapas totalled 30,90€ (which we found somewhat expensive, for Barcelona). The tapas were good, the tofu croquettes were very dense though. There were also some fries at the bottom.
Although the food and drinks were OK, we didn’t really enjoy our visit to Barceloneta tapas bar. The lady serving us was not very talkative and we didn’t feel really welcome. Chairs were also rather uncomfortable.
Barceloneta tapas bar is not accessible (step to get in, no accessible toilets). Toilet was a bit shabby, and rather small.
So in sum: a bit mixed feelings. Enjoyed the drinks and tapas (albeit a bit on the expensive side). Didn’t really enjoy the atmosphere. Maybe it feels cosier on a hot Summer day 🙂
