So pleased we made a reservation and we got our seats at the bar right next to the chefs plating area and enjoyed a fantastic tapas dinner at a very reasonable price. Very in resting to watch the chefs preparing some great food. The staff...were extremely professional and attentive giving advice on what the options were for our uninitiated prior knowledge. Recommend to anyone for this super restaurant in a classical settingMore

Very busy and they don’t take reservations. We put our name down on the list and came back an hour later to be seated. It was definitely worth it though as the food was amazing. We got the steak tartare with fries and octopus which...were both delicious.More

One of the best dinner experiences ever. The bar is better than going to the theater. I have never seen a better display of dining at the bar since the early days of Balthazar in New York. Food outstanding but the stars are the staff!

Incredible food! Incredible staff!! We had so much fun and the tapas were amazing! Make a reservation, you likely won’t get seated without one.

We went to Bar Cañete twice during our 3 days stay in Barcelona. The first time for dinner and it was so good that we returned for lunch the next day. Our waiter on the first day was Emilio and he was very good. The...food on both occasions was very good, well presented and priced accordingly. The platters arrived fast enough so, as it is with tapas, we didn’t have to wait half an hour for thefirst plate to arrive. The place was very busy on both occasions we were there and many of the visitors were locals. I would strongly encourage anyone visiting Barcelona who likes tapas to book this placeMore

I had visited previously for a work dinner and was impressed and enjoyed immensely (the food at least) as I wasn’t paying. Returned as a couple for birthday treat and booked in advance. Had a delay waiting for a table/space to be free after booking...time but wasn’t in a rush. Sat at the kitchen bar and scoffed a load of delicious food, drank good fizz and enjoyed the atmosphere and very attentive staff juggling all the demands. One note - the giant Barcelona Bombe “meatball” is a giant croquette, not a meatballMore

Just as it says on the menu, you should forget about any diets you may have when you come here - because you need to test everything on the menu! Very high quality food prepared by meticulous chefs, served in a beautiful environment. Come here...if you want to avoid the tourist vibe and see how locals eat and drink. Highly recommend!More

Great place to eat and it is very lively as it gets so busy. We were served by Emilio who's mum is English. He's a Gooner and I'm a Blade so he reminded me that Arsenal had beaten us 6-0 a couple of weeks previously....He's a good lad and does his job extremely well. Of course it's his job to gently persuade us to spend a little bit more but he does it so well. He does take no for an answer, eventually :) He's is really good at helping you choose which plate to have and his knowledge of which wine to go with the food you choose is excellent. I highly recommend Bar Canete - give it a try.More

You must reserve. The service is the restaurant show! But the food is outstanding. You can see the chef working from your table. Order cañita to start. Then, choose a bottle of a good Tempranillo. Don’t be afraid and order to share. The prices are...very razonable. You have only 2 hours for this experience, so don’t waste time!More

This is one of the best meals I had in all of Spain. There are a limited number of tables - maybe 10-15 so the waiting list for a table is long. We booked 2.5 months in advance for a table. Our waiter even knew...where we were from ( They take pride in knowing their customers). The staff was friendly and family oriented. We were treated well and each tapas was better than the next. The chocolate desert was heavenly and we should have ordered two more but we were stuffed. The ambiance is friendly and appealing. I highly recommend this restaurant/bar. If you do not have a reservation, don't fret, you can sit at the bar however the wait might be 2-3 hours ( this is what I overheard others sharing). The reservations are so coveted there were people that flew in from Japan with their luggage and went straight to the restaurant- that's how highly coveted this place is. Apparently they were not the only ones because they had about 10 suitcases stacked up for patrons. I would strongly encourage you to try and get a reservation and go. This is a phenomenal restaurant and so much better than the Micheline restaurant we went to the night before.More
