    One of the things I wanted to come back to Barcelona for was a meal of snails at Las Caracoles. I was so disappointed, the snails i remembered from visits over the years since 1960 were presented in an awful, thick tomato based “gunk”that was impossible to eat withoutA serious hand washing afterwards since one has to hold the shells while taking out the snail. It was an unpleasant overall experience. At the door where other customers had to enter was right through the middle of the kitchen which seemed very unsanitary. I was shown in and out through the kitchen as were other guests. The entire ambience was dark and unpleasant. The elderly staff did their best but weren’t at all attentive. Other guests had to help me signal a waiter when I needed one. A waiter other than my own noticed I had no water/lemon slice dish with which to clean hands. Many of the snails were not fresh but came out of the shell in pieces rather than the firm and in one piece which I have never experienced in 40 years of eating snails. An overwhelming, way overpriced , and disappointing experience. I’m sad about the loss of this restaurant from my memories.

    Great experience! Wonderful, traditional restaurant. Great service. Delicious food and good wine for very reasonable prices. Wonderful atmosphere - apart from a loud group of American businessmen. But that’s not the restaurant’s fault - it’s their lack of proper manners :-) There was a trio of musicians that came and played. It was wonderful - they sang and played beautifully. The desserts were scrumptious - I recommend the Caracoles Pijamas! We were served a complimentary after dinner Orujos - a delicious digestive drink to end our meal. Wonderful experience all the way through!

    Place with real character and a novelty to walk through the kitchen to the restaurant. They sang happy birthday to my dad which was great. Really friendly staff. Food was on the whole good apart from one fatty steak. Definitely recommend.

    We ordered the 40 day aged, 1 kilo T bone and it was even better than we expected. Excellent flavor, cooked to perfection. We will be back to try the paella as well. Exceeded our expectations in terms of quality and was an excellent value overall.

    Maybe too traditional Catalonia for me. I'm glad I got to experience this place but for Christmas eve dinner maybe a place a bit more upscale would be a better choice.

    This restaurant has it long history but the food is not as good as we expected. The environment is crowed and the room temperature is hot. Unfortunately a small cockroach is walking around the bread table. That’s really disappointed.
