There are a lot of tapas places in Barcelona of course, but this one stands out. Lots of locals come her and Is very authentic.

this restaurant is a little bit outside center, but in a good place, full of local people, residential area, you can enjoy there with your kids and relax a little after a tourism day

I give this place 5 stars for service and 3 stars for food.

Service was exceptional! The server came out and described all the special of the days and recommended his favorites. There is a menu in English as well.

Certain dishes were amazing and some I was very disappointed. Too bad they don't have a special lunch menu because the bill for the two of us was quite expensive.

So, if you're going to try this place out, here's what I had:

Crispy pig mask - pretty much like bacon but lacking flavor. I believe the garnish in top was peppercinis? Or banana peppers. Not so sure.

Iberico ham croquettes - took a bit and it was so crispy and tasty. Definitely get this.

Their "special egg of the day" was similar to huevos cabriadios. This one came with asparagus. The portion was really tiny and everything was kind of mushed together. Lacking crunchy texture. Didn't like it at all.

Steak tar tar - very nice. Came with 4 pieces of patatas which I didn't think went will with the tar tar. Instead, I spooned it onto the compliments pan con tomatoes they gave us.

Patatas bravas - not your usual patatas with aioli. They add a sort of tomato paste to this dish so it makes it unique and interesting. It's good!

Scallop on top of pork neck. This was the star dish of the meal. Scallops perfectly cooked on a fatty piece of pork. So much flavor, the right amount of crispness- this is a must have.

All this + 2 drink came out to 58.20€.

Best dinner we have had in Barcelona; food, atmosphere, and staff lived up to restaurant's excellent reviews. Particularly accommodating to visitors to the city. Definitely try their house Rioja!

We visited Bambarol on our first night a Tuesday and the whole evening was fantastic from the welcome, the food and the service. All the staff were so passionate and knowledgeable about the food and wines. We were guided through the menu and offered suggestions based on the classics and daily specials. It was so good rather than try a different restaurant the next night we went back again and tried different dishes, again everything was perfect. Both nights the restaurant was full of locals and I would not hesitate to go back whenever I visit Barcelona again.
