First Review by A.Z.P.

Nice bar and burgers - Edit

Alternative looking place that has burgers and craft beer. My burger was quite big and juicy, pretty good for a vegan burger! They also had about 8 tap beers and 20 bottles. Service was decent, not super friendly but I was the first customer of the day. Would visit again.

Update: visited again. Still very good food and very fair prices. Friendly service too. Loved it.

Updated from previous review on 2016-07-13

Pros: Good beer!

Best Vegan Burger - Edit

I'm extremely picky, and finding things I will eat out is hard. That being said, I got the Mexican Red burger and loved it. Genuinely the best vegan burger I've had! Although it doesn't taste like meat, it is just so delicious, and my non-veg boyfriend loved it as well. Will totally be going again before I leave Barcelona.

Pros: Food is good for picky people

Fab, friendly vegan bar - Edit

Friendly, laid-back vegan bar with great burgers and beers. Probably our favourite of the places we visited.
Range of burgers includes Champion burger (mushrooms), Crazy (with pesto and sundried tomatoes), Mexican bean etc. You choose whether to have a bun, potatoes, salad etc.
Nice relaxed place to spend some time.

Pros: Vegan, Beer and burgers!

Definitely worth a visit - Edit

Good vegan burgers AND beer.. what more do you need in life?
The burgers are really tasty, with homemade buns I think. And honestly the patatas bravas is the best I've tried! They also offer a dish of the day.
The place has a really nice vibe with quirky decoration. The staff speaks English well and are really friendly.
And the place allows dogs so you might even meet a furry friend!
I only have positive things to say about this place.

Pros: Good food, Friendly staff, Really nice atmosphere

Cons: None!

BEST BURGER EVER — AND I’M FUSSY - Edit

I am unbelievably fussy when it comes to burgers. Even when I ate meat, I rarely enjoyed a burger especially at restaurants. I literally cannot recall a meat burger I ever enjoyed and I never finished them if I ate out. I am also fussy about vegan burgers and have tried just about every type you can get at the supermarket and only really liked a few. So you’ll believe me when I say the black cat burger was PHENOMENAL. I took one bite and was amazed. It really was the best burger I’ve ever had. Even if you’re not vegan, you must go and try it! I would book a holiday to Barcelona again solely for this burger.

Pros: Amazing burger, Seriously, the best burger, very easy to order

Cons: unclean toilets

CatBarCat 14 Apr 2018 - More of the same?
We were the first vegan burger bar, and now the oldest vegan place in Barcelona,
We were also the first to do "raw vegan" before is was a fashion, no one bought any, so we stopped.
We were the first vegan cocktail bar, we stopped selling cocktails, and spirits, because of the amount of annoying cocaine users, Gin attracts..
We were the 3rd Craft beer bar in Barcelona and still the cheapest, and the first (and maybe still the only one) to sell mainly Catalan craft beers, thereby supporting local businesses.
We have probably the cheapest burgers per Kilo in the city, (ours are actually its the same price as a BurgerKing veggie burger, considering ours are 60% bigger than theirs).
I haven't tasted all the others, but so far none better.

Great burgers - Edit

I had the champion burger with potatos and my partner had the Mexican one. Both were really tasty and filling. The mexican burger is quite spicy but really full of flavour. We went early and it was quiet I didnt ask to play the piano but I wish I had!

Pros: Great flavours, good value for money too

All vegan burgers and beers - Edit

Really enjoyed this experience. Got here not long after it opened and it filled up quickly. It got the black cat burger, fried and a beer for 12 euros. Waitress/barmaid spoke excellent English. Food was really tasty and good sized serving. Service was a little slow, but I believe it was just because of the number of people.

Pros: All vegan, Lots of choices, Large portions

so-so - Edit

A small menu with burgers a bit expensive (compared to other vegan burger joints well located near Sagrada Familia for instance) but HUGE! We got the CAT burger which was oddly sweet and dry. The atmosphere was so-so. Don't forget you can't split the payment unless you order separately (on separate papers). The store lack story (the story behind the name is disappointing) and the back of the restaurant is a bit left out with no soul.

CatBarCat 14 Apr 2018 - True, "La Trocadero"'s burger is 1€ cheaper, but it's a much smaller burger, served in takeaway packaging, you cannot split the bill in there either, you have to put money into a machine, you also have to collect your food when they call you, with no menu's to take to your table to study first, and no live music. "La Trocadero" is a good fast food takeaway, maybe the first of a chain, but its not a bar.
CatBar is named after my daughter "Cat", after RyanAir didn't get me to her graduation, it was opened when I gave up designing parts of aircrafts, satellites and submarines, to be a full time "vegan beer drinker", but ended up being the table cleaner, beer pipe cleaner, beer barrel changer, plumber, electrician, decorator, accountant, logistics manager, HR person and review responder, sometime even cook and bar tender, and glass collector, getting only a old months wage, ever year..
Your burger was sweet due to the caramelised onions on the top, it should not have been dry, and the atmosphere depends on the people in the bar at the time.
The front room and upstairs are much more interesting spaces..

Amazing Burgers - Edit

Great food and friendly staff.
I love cats and I’m a vegan which is what drew me here and I wasn’t disappointed (just to point out it’s cat themed but there are no real cats!)
The only downside was the limited choice of drinks as I don’t like beer or wine.
If you like cats and vegan food CatBar is definitely worth a visit.

Pros: Great food, Quirky

Cons: Limited choice of drinks (no spirits)

Millors hamburgueses i braves de Barna - Edit

El lloc és petit i té poca llum, però si vens a bona hora i pots seure és genial, acollidor i amb bon ambient; he provat totes les hamburgueses i són totes boníssimes, tot i que trobo a faltar la Hemp... Les cerveses artesanals acompanyen molt bé, i les patates braves estan super bones i calentes, les salsa espectacular. He demanat molts cops també menjar per emportar, acostumen a ser ràpids, i sempre vui repetir. El vegà preferit de Barna de llarg, juntament amb el Vacka.

Pros: Economical, Delicious

Cons: Small place

Amazing Burger - Edit

Visited this place last week after finding it on happy cow and was not disappointed. The best vegan burger (we both had the blackbean burger) I've ever had. It was amazing and fairly priced. My mum (who is a meat eater) also loved it. Would recommend to anyone.
