Description: Ultramarinos is the culmination of many years in the restaurant business for José Lombardero and Kate Preston. During that time they have trawled Spain in search of the best producers, farmers and wine-makers, eating in the most authentic tapas bars and yes, quaffing the odd cocktail, while learning everything they can about the country's rich culinary heritage in order to bring it to you. After establishing some of the city's best-loved restaurants: Taller de Tapas, Casa Delfin and Ajoblanco, Ultramarinos is their latest muse: the sexiest space on Barcelona's most famous street which brings together all the elements of the Spanish lifestyle that they know and love.

I was at Ultramarinos on June 28th, 2018. If you want to get the services as if you came to eat and drink for free, you are welcome. Rolling-eyes waiters, manager, absolutely disrespectful and unprofessional attitude. There were 11 official complaints on the restaurant before mine - that means something. Plus, they tried to charge us extra drinks we didn’t receive - dirty trick.

Dear SaM_1990_us,

At Ultramarinos we are very glad to receive visits from a wide range of customers, both from Barcelona and all over the world. 99,9% are charming, friendly, polite and understanding. However, very ocassionally we may receive a visit where the sole object is to receive free food at all cost. These visits are always very unfortunate.

The Ultramarinos Team

We booked here for a dinner on a hen do for the Saturday night. We were a bit late getting to the venue as we got exceptionally lost trying to find it. (There is a bar called Ultramarinos which is definitely not the right place and we only realized this after our taxi had sped off!).

The décor in this place is amazing; I'd loved it from the photos which I'd seen online and it was even better in person. We were taken to our table which had a little bit of privacy and a good view of the restaurant. The service was very attentive and the food excellent. There was a great range of tapas (The potatas bravos and calamari were both amazing!), and I was so happy with the paella, could not fault it. The food prices were also very reasonable.

My only negative is that when we ordered cava (no prosecco in Barcelona) when we sat down they told us that there were only two bottles left in stock (9pm on a Saturday night) so the majority of the group had to switch to something else.

But I would definitely recommend this place and return here in a heartbeat.

Fantastic tapas and seafood paella. Great wine list, loved the Albariño. Very attentive service from start to finish. Not the cheapest of places but that is mainly dictated by it's location. Would recommend to anyone in Barcelona!!

Great Food, great service and really friendly staff with a great vibe. The food isn't over priced (A rarity on La Rambla) and is really nice. Ideally located at the bottom of La Rambla.

We booked this place on the fork app and this gave us 20% Off. We had the tapas which tasted delicious. There was a slight language barrier as only one member of staff could speak English however this added to the authentic Catalan experience. I highly recommend Ultraminos and would definitely visit this place again.
