Not best in Barcelona

2 Posted on 08 / 12 / 2012

I went to Mosquito Tapas after a recomendation from a fried who said that everything is good here and that it's cheap. Nothing was true.
We only managed to eat all the vegan dumplings. The rest was very weird dishes. But that's only what I think, people may like it but I didn't.

One of the waitresses was not very knowledged about vegans and accidently served us dumplings made with chicken bouillon. She said that "vegetarians" really don't care about that. Not many of the dishes are vegan.

It was kind of expensive aswell. We ate som tapas, not very much and drank one beer each (two persons). And it costed about 32 euro.

Pros: Nice neighboorhood, Great beers, Vegan dumplings
Cons: Expensive, The food, "Vegetarian"

Weird but nice

We went to Mosquito because the notion of "asian tapas" intrigued us. Turns out they were just dim sum (like the review below my already pointed out). Not that I mind, cause it was delicious anyway.

The menu was Catalan only, but we did get an English explanation from the waitress. There were some options indicated with a V, but we suspected there to be more. And indeed, when we mentioned we were vegetarians, the waitress promptly indicated about ten more items on the list.

The food came very fast and was as mentioned above, quite delicious, with interesting asian flavours. We feared it might be greasy food, but were pleasantly surprised that most of the tapas were of the more "healty" variety.

We went here for lunch and were amongst the first to arrive, but the place soon filled up. Service was fast non the less.

The whole place was a bit weird and confusing as to what it actually was. They seem to want to follow a lot of trends that don't have anything to do with each other. They name their dim sum tapas, probably because tapas are hot and lure in tourists. They also have a huge selection of beer, mostly Belgian and some German too. Not that there's anything wrong with that, it just seems like a weird combination. Like they are doing whatever's popular.

Prices were quite low. We ordered 7 different tapas and two juices and only paid about €25.

All in all we had a pleasant and yummy lunch here. We wouldn't visit it twice on the same trip, but would definately come back here if we ever visit Barcelona again.

Pros: yummy & healty, cheap, fast

Cozy neighborhood place, dim sum tapas, yum but $$

We loved the great service, neighborhood cool ambiance and yummy dim sum (this is an asian tapas place, but if you've ever had dim sum, you would say this is a dim sum place). With one major difference - lots of great beers and really high prices. Still, for a tapas-like experience in BCN (so you don't feel left out), it's great food and a must go. It's also in a cool neighborhood, just by a large city market and the Born.

Pros: Food , Drink, Ambiance
Cons: Prices

Tasty & quick

We've just been to Mosquito Tapas for our dinner and really enjoyed it. The place is quite small and seemed very popular, so we were lucky to get a table.

The ordering process is easy - get the menu & a pencil, then tick the items you want to order and pass the slip back to the waitress (who was busy, but friendly). The food was served surprisingly fast and it was deeeelicious.

We ended up with aubergine & peanut sauce, steamed vegetable dumplings, wild mushrooms with lemon, spicy tofu and some rice (plus two non-veg dishes for my dining companion), and it was all tasty - the mushrooms were definitely a winner! I loved being able to choose from many small dishes, which was great for sharing.

The bill came to 30 Euros for food and soft drinks for 2 - they also have a fairly extensive beer list which isn't quite cheap, but looks exciting.

Nice little place and very veggie-friendly (I even think that the veg dishes we ordered are vegan), thumbs up.

Pros: tasty, quick, the mushrooms!
Cons: busy

Our best night in Barcelona

great atmosphere, fantastic veggie dim sum. The mushrooms in butter and lemon were a particular treat. Cheap but good wine. Seems very popular - it opens at 7:30pm - we got there at 8:30 and got the last free table. Highly recommended and not nearly as hard to find as the trip advisor reviews claim!

Pros: Great food, Great atmosphere
Cons: Smokers, Hard to get a table
