Samsara is a simple but cozy place with a great selection of tapas. The tasting menu is great value with seven tapas to share amongst two people, and three glasses of wine each for 25 Euros per person! Service is a bit inflexible. For example...two of us wanted the menu, and two just wanted to order selected tapas. We were told this is not possible so in the end two of us were not able to eat. A bit weird given that like this the restaurant made less money! The owner afterwards apologized but still insisted on the logic of either everyone on the table gets the menu or nobody, so keep this in mind.More

I’ve been here twice already, and I chose the 50€ menu (for 2 people). I would have gladly given 5/5 stars, because the food tasted really incredible and each tapa was worth trying. But I would like to point out that both times we were...charged more than we should have: we checked carefully throughout the menu to make sure which plates had the 2€ supplement, and still we ended up paying more. I would definitely come back here for the food, as I said, but I suggest the owners be clear about those supplements and charge the correct prices.More

Samsara was well recommended by a ton of people in TA, so since it was only 80 feet away from our apartment in Gràcia we decided to try their tapas. We didn’t know much about such a unique menú so we let the waiter guide...us, he didn’t disappoint us, he suggested we try the six tapas plates and based in our likes he suggested some according dishes, wow! One after another our palates went from seafood to beef to sweet to sour with each different tapas. The food presentation was as amazing as it was its flavor, desserts were to die for and above all it was the kindness of the waiters (both of them young guys) who went way above and beyond their way to make our first experience with such a great menu an unforgettable memory. Please try Samsara, we can asure you, you won’t be disappointed.More

The food at Samsara (Ihave been several times) is EXCELLENT! The wine list is fantastic, and the waiters can help make suggestions to pair your wine with the food if you need help1 I am intolerant to wheat and vegetarian, and the chefs have always...been able to come up with a good variety of tapas for me. the last time I went, i was with a big group. we sked for a variety of tapas (chef's choice) and asked them to include veggie stuff for me and the 3 other vegetarians, and wheat free things for me. Everybody ate very well, we were ALL very happy with the food. I can't wait to go again!More

............. extremely slow. You have to wait one hour to get additionnal tapas. You ask for one, they give two. Now I pray. Because I'm so hungry. I turn my head every minute to see if maybe my food is coming. I'm still waiting.....

Cozy restaurant in Barcelona, with warm atmosphere. Tapas are very good, traditional plates have been revisited in a tasty way. Only point: the portions are a bit too little. Very good place to have dinner with friends!

48euro for 2 ppl for 7 tapas, 6 drinks and 2 desserts! Was fabulous- got to try lots of different things. Particularly loved the desserts- pear tarte and strawberry sorbet. Good value. Best to book- very busy.

Great place to come to with friends. Set up a reservation. Low seats and tables and close proximity to keep the conversation going. Lots of great tapas to taste. Creative mix of flavors. I love their bravas with pesto, burgers, steaks, artichokes with quail eggs,...and tuna and brochettes. The creativity and simplicity of the food is what makes this place stand out.More

Gracia
Gracia literally stands out from the pack. It used to
be an independent town until late into the 19th
century. Though it’s just a short commute away from
the centre, a visit here feels like you’re in a whole
different city. The bohemian vibe has drawn many
international artists to this area, resulting in a
wide selection of galleries, live music and artsy
boutique stores. The nightlife is centered around the
