Respond to Review of CatBar
by Deborah3000

Review: I went there with a friend. It's quite small. The menu is not great unless you're into burgers... We had something with tabouleh in it. Not very good. While we were there a staff member arrived with a bicycle which she stored next to another couple of bikes at the back of the restaurant. Somebody was sitting next to the bikes and had to move her chair a bit. She and her companion left soon afterwards. Not a place I would recommend

There are 2 options on Happy Cow, Restaurant or Store, we are not a store.
We are called CatBAR.
The 1st sentence of our description above reads:-
Vegan artisan beer bar and restaurant featuring 9 beers on tap, 30+ mainly local Catalan craft beers in bottles, Cat-ish decoration.
Veggie Gardens / Juicy Jones are good for traditional Vegetarian meals.
CatBar is different, its the place to, eat, drink, party, meet new people, with random musicians playing, but where everything you eat and drink is vegan.

The bikes were brought in and taken out by staff members when I went to the restaurant.
Bikes are a hygiene issue if you move them around the seating area of the restaurant. Comparing that to bringing in children is a bit strange. Catbar is also advertised as a restaurant on HappyCow so people expect food and not mainly beer.
I would recommend to vegans a restaurant like Veggie Garden which has an extensive and varied vegan menu and where you can eat comfortably without having to move to accommodate bikes or other things.
As I mentioned in my previous message, Catbar might be ok if you eat burgers but I didn't choose that option.

Note:- Customers are free to bring in their bicycles, children and dogs too, its much safer than leaving them on the street.
Also note:- if you sit next to the piano you may have to move your chair a bit when a pianist wants to play.
CatBAR as the name suggests is a BAR, actually its an Artisan beer bar with 9 Taps and 30+ local bottled beers, with vegan food, mainly burgers, plus 1 or 2 non-burger options.
The non-burger options are usually lighter, wheat free and are different every day. It could be a rice dish, spaghetti, Brazilian, Chinese, Italian, Spicy or smokey and if you don't like it we will always change it for something else, if a few people don't like it, it will never be on the menu again, and the chef sacrificed to the vegan gods.
If it's your 1st visit we suggest you try the Award winning Green, or the new Mexican, Burger.
The only posh "Restaurant" suitable for vegans in Barcelona is Teresa Carles Cocina http://www.happycow.net/reviews.php?id=5884
all the others are low budget eating places and are shown on the Map on the CatBarCAT Facebook page, and reviewed here on Happycow.net
