Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars

For all its wonders, sometimes the big city can just get to you. It can be exhausting just walking along the streets in the Barri Gòtic, but when you happen upon Salterio, it can be the best antidote to pounding the city streets. Exotic and mysterious, the space is a cave out of an Arabian fable, a universe of turbans, flying carpets and magical daggers. We're not talking about some prefab scenario, either – this temple oozes authenticity because it actually has Arab roots. Dive into the ocean of options on the menu, which boasts the best teas in Barcelona (outside the doors of Caj Chai, one might argue), to see for yourself what Salterio really has to offer.

The range of herbal teas is also eye-popping. And the fruit smoothies, though on the pricy side, are among our top five in the city. If you're looking for something a bit stronger, they also serve beer, sangria and wine. And Turkish coffee. If you're feeling peckish, the pastries are out of this world and obligatory to complete the full magical and relaxing Arabic experience right in the middle of the Barri Gòtic and recharge your batteries and revitalise your spirit.
