We visited this place to start the day and also ate lunch here. It seems to mainly service the many businesses in the industrial estate. Although I don't speak Spanish, I felt welcomed and very much enjoyed the food that was served at lunch time. If you're visiting any companies in the area, you'll get good food, refreshments and service... More

The four of enjoyed this restaurant very much. They opened at 8pm. They had menus in English and the server who spoke almost no English did her best to work with us. As for the food, it was served fresh and hot. They started us off with a tasty aperitif of some kind of minced meat croquettes that was very... More

Our concierge recommended the restaurant. He was spot on with his recommendation. Not having be to an authentic tapas place, we asked for a little help. This was not a problem as we don't speak Spanish, between me and the excellent waiter we got it. There is a service charge mind....we missed it but hey ho. The octopus main was... More

We had a wonderful late dinner here on our first night. We stumbled upon the restaurant while out for a stroll. It was a delicious surprise. I had a house white wine and my partner had a beer. We had the chorizo balls to start. For the main course, we had the fried goat cheese salad which was phenomenal as... More

I should preface this by noting that I'm not a picky eater. I'm quite happy with anything from Pizza Hut to a gourmet goat cheese and pear pizza. It's rare that I actively dislike dishes, especially ones that sound good on the menu or that I've had before. So I was quite surprised by how terrible I found the food... More

The service and the food at the Restaurante Hidalgo were excellent. The tapas and the paella were delicious. The restaurant owner/service staff were very welcoming and proud of the dishes that they were serving. I highly recommend this restaurant to individuals who want to have an excellent meal in a wonderful atmosphere in Barcelona.

I came here with a friend who lives in the area or I would probably have missed it, as it's off the tourist track: I was lucky! Tapas are delicious and the wine we were suggested by the owner was also good. Maybe the way the dishes are laid out is a bit outdated (slate plates, etc.), but who cares!... More

I was in the area for business and are here my first night. I went back three more times! I mostly ate tapas and enjoyed the wine. Try the chorizo balls with the bread.

We had been thinking of going here before, but it is a bit out of our way, so it hadn't happened. It's a fairly small place at the top of the Balmes Street, but there are buses from Plaza Cataluña so no problem getting there. It was Sunday lunchtime so it was quite full. We had booked in advance, which... More
