In the pleasantly cool, shadowy interior of Can Cisa, you can appreciate the care that’s gone into the restoration of a neighbourhood bar. Their reverence for the tradition of buying wine from the barrel, plus some local pressure, persuaded them to combine a classic bodega at the entrance, with a wine bar at the back. They stock 300 wines, all from organic or bio-dynamic producers around the world, ‘without chemicals or additives, at accessible prices: the same wines at the same price as before. We want older people from the neighbourhood to socialize here the way they used to, so we don’t lose that essential feeling – an old-style tavern that sells vermouth by the litre.’

Amazing place. Great atmosphere, great service and the food and wine was incredible, we loved it so much we went back, we still talk about it today
A lucky find. The food was delicious - best were a wonderful soft burrata cheese served with trout roe and smoked salmon and a dessert of really intense strawberries, mascarpone and sweet toasted almonds. But the razor clams, tuna belly, sourdough bread, and aubergine with basil oil were not bad too! The basic house red recommended by the friendly waitress was a very nice Barbera/Dolcetto blend. Definitely highly recommended. (Oh and all the male staff and all the pictures on the wall in the bar had mustaches for Movember)
Great food, very special food, service is very good too. The interior is great between brutal and creative. We found it by chance Friday and went back Saturday for more! Will definitely go back every time I go to Barcelona. Will also recommend it! Only for special people.
Disappointing: -very small portions. You come out hungry even after spending 30/40 euros per person for the food alone. -The wine list is impressive on paper but not when you actually try the wines. We tried the Catalan Chenin Blanc and it was awful. Same for the house Merlot. I am usually impressed by the Time Out restaurants but not this time sorry.
