Only disappointment was no bread rolls shaped as snails anymore? Whappen!!
There are a lot of choice in Menu. Excellent tasty food, good service. Family restaurant with a history. I will certainly come back and recommend it to my friends.
One of the things I wanted to come back to Barcelona for was a meal of snails at Las Caracoles. I was so disappointed, the snails i remembered from visits over the years since 1960 were presented in an awful, thick tomato based “gunk”that was impossible to eat withoutA serious hand washing afterwards since one has to hold the shells while taking out the snail. It was an unpleasant overall experience. At the door where other customers had to enter was right through the middle of the kitchen which seemed very unsanitary. I was shown in and out through the kitchen as were other guests. The entire ambience was dark and unpleasant. The elderly staff did their best but weren’t at all attentive. Other guests had to help me signal a waiter when I needed one. A waiter other than my own noticed I had no water/lemon slice dish with which to clean hands. Many of the snails were not fresh but came out of the shell in pieces rather than the firm and in one piece which I have never experienced in 40 years of eating snails. An overwhelming, way overpriced , and disappointing experience. I’m sad about the loss of this restaurant from my memories.
Great experience! Wonderful, traditional restaurant. Great service. Delicious food and good wine for very reasonable prices. Wonderful atmosphere - apart from a loud group of American businessmen. But that’s not the restaurant’s fault - it’s their lack of proper manners :-) There was a trio of musicians that came and played. It was wonderful - they sang and played beautifully. The desserts were scrumptious - I recommend the Caracoles Pijamas! We were served a complimentary after dinner Orujos - a delicious digestive drink to end our meal. Wonderful experience all the way through!
Place with real character and a novelty to walk through the kitchen to the restaurant. They sang happy birthday to my dad which was great. Really friendly staff. Food was on the whole good apart from one fatty steak. Definitely recommend.
Good food, but too crowded, that place is very touristic.
Amazing! Delicious food, kind service and great environment :)
We ordered the 40 day aged, 1 kilo T bone and it was even better than we expected. Excellent flavor, cooked to perfection. We will be back to try the paella as well. Exceeded our expectations in terms of quality and was an excellent value overall.
Todo rico, croquetas de bacalao y paella súper!
One of the best and most memorable and fun dinners we have had....thank you for making us feel like locals and sharing your wonderful food with us all!
Amazing food, service and was great for two people to converse over a meal.
Maybe too traditional Catalonia for me. I'm glad I got to experience this place but for Christmas eve dinner maybe a place a bit more upscale would be a better choice.
Vero good, very expensive!!
An amazing restaurant, a really old traditional feel to it. Great location too.
This restaurant has it long history but the food is not as good as we expected. The environment is crowed and the room temperature is hot. Unfortunately a small cockroach is walking around the bread table. That’s really disappointed.
We had a really great dinner with delicious Food. Good service, really nice and small restaurant. Some Music later, a perfect evening. Thanks.
A very nice experience in a very unique restaurant, Proper service by people who know what they are doing Good food and a thoroughly enjoyable time
Lovely meal at a culinary institution!
My favorite restaurant anywhere! Authentic Catalan food. The best crema Catalána of any restaurant. Quaint, cozy, old-world rustic atmosphere.
From the outside it looks like a bar, get a reservation and walk in to explore gastronomic heaven Seafood platter is great, wine list is great, 1866 brandy in warmed glasses is superb. Include great guitare trio to add atmosphere and the fab interior design and you have the perfect evening in Barcelona. One to savour and remember...
The waiter responded very late and he was not helpful in explaining the menu we only had some soup and had to leave early. Even then the bill was very high,
Best meal and wine I have had at a restaraunt. Everyone was so accommodating and very prompt. Loved our experience and a must when visiting barcelona
Amazing food and excellent service ask for Roberto he was the best waiter we had in all of Spain. The restaurant has been in business since 1835! Very nice atmosphere and air conditioning.
Fantastic atmosphere, the food was delicious especial the roast pork and snails.
Great food, service and especially the environment. Definitely a must.
The atmosphere was wonderful, but my oxtail entree was filled with small bones and grizzle. I told the waiter and he seemed unconcerned. Very disappointing.
The restaurant is very old, the food is excellent! The 5th generation Bose are talk with me n talk about the History! I’m so happy tonight! ????????
Authentic food in an authentic setting. Friendly staff. We felt at home and at ease.
The food was excellent! Our seafood paella was superb, as were the ham and chicken croquettes. The service was lacking at best. We were given our meal and did not see a server again for close to 40 minutes. My husband wanted another drink,, the servers were rushing around but never stopped at our table to check on us. That was very disappointing. We eventually had to get up from the table, track down a waiter and ask for the bill. I was expecting more from this restaurant based on its excellent reviews.
Classic Barcelona eatery with classic dishes
the restaurant couldn't survive this long by being bad. Good meal and excellent service
Great food in a very historic setting
Best caracoles I ate in my life,place is beautifully old and cozy.fantastic place to eat !
The mood was nice. Nice music, very clean bathroom, neat table. The food of course wonderful. They helped us to select the menu was so kind. The sparkling wine and red wine really good. And we were very appreciated that they let us share the dishes. The most Japanese have small stomach but we want to eat a lot of different things. Thanks. It is kind a far from the station by walk (20min) hard to find because the restaurant is small. But we do definitely recommend you this place!!! So nice!
MUST TRY IN BARCELONA
Great dinner! Restaurant has been in business since 1835. That says a lot for it.
Garlic chicken was superb. Sangria was not too strong like some restautants and very easy to drink. Very nice service with excellent English
Excellent food but pricey
Institution barcelonaise, bien ...
