El Tropezón - Barcelona

El Tropezón is a small and typical tapas bar that’s open all day. Really rustic but recognized for its patatas bravas and the Bomba (patato croquette with sobrasada and peppers).
A nice place and very nice prices

    El bar tropezon de Barcelona, es claramente un timo, una descarada estafa.
    Yo estube no hace mucho para tapear y la verdad los précios de las tapas son normales tirando a caras, pero bueno igualmente entras, pero la sorpresa es la bebida. Que clavada por dos jarras pequeñas de cerveza. Por cierto las tapas eran horribles y el local está sucisimo, las mesas tienen una capa sospechosa de algo que pega y ni te limpian la mesa llena de charcos. No quiero imaginarme como de sucia estará la cocina.
    Yo vivo en Barcelona, pero ni de coña volveré a entrar.

  3. Un verdadero "tropezón" - Laura Dominguez (23 Jun 2012 - 12:00)

    Vivo en Barcelona y nunca antes había entrado a "El tropezón" y no sabía de su existencia. Una amiga me lo recomendó porque decía que allí se hacían las mejores patatas bravas de Barcelona, que lo corroboraba una crítica que había en la puerta. La ración de patatas era ridícula, encharcadas en aceite y nadando en mayonesa fría y por el escandaloso precio de 5 euros la tapa. El pan de tres días y que, por consiguiente, sabía a viejo y la cerveza caliente. Para colmo, el que nos servía se puso a fumar justo en la puerta, a los efectos, como si fumara dentro. Terminó de fumar y con la misma nos trajo los platos. "El tropezón", una verdadera decepción. Si queréis comer mínimamente bien, iros a otro sitio.

    I couldn't agree more with the last writer. Don't go to this place!

  5. El Tropezon - Lars (16 Jan 2012 - 00:15)

    I am living one street away since 5 years, so I know my area and I know where to eat good food. I tried El Tropezon twice, and was always very disappointed. Actually, every day I walk by there I see it full of tourists.
    My opinion: The treatment is just bad. The place is decorated like a farm, and you might be treated like an animal "sit there, sit here, order now! etc". The food is heavy, oily, greasy, deep fried. The staff looks like they eat their own food every day, with rests of it left on their shirts...or maybe they worked on a farm all day.
    While I can not say anything particularly bad about the food, I can also not remember anything specially good. If you go there, you might value more the smiles that receive you in other places.

  6. No vayais - Anna (29 Nov 2011 - 09:30)

    Estoy alucionada con los comentarios buenos de este bar. Soy de barcelona y nunca he ido a un bar saliendo con tan mal sabor de boca como del tropezón. Un día pasé por delante con mi pareja y viendo que estaba lleno, nos entraron ganas de probarlo. Fuimos un viernes y comimos:
    Tortilla de patatas: tenía muy buena pinta pero estaba reseca, hecha de hacía 2 días por lo menos.
    Pan con tomate también hecho de hacía horas.
    Pescadito frito. Ni fu ni fa.
    Jamón de bellota: nos timaron porque no era de bellota ni de nada, el jamón del súper está más bueno.
    Esto y 2 cervezas nos costó 35 euros. No vayais si quereis comer mínimamente bien, disfrutas más con un kebab y no te sablan.

  8. Worst restaurent - Kevin (16 Aug 2010 - 15:00)

    I have been in Barcelona for one week and this is the worst restaurant I have ever been to. The waiter was rude with a cigarette in his mouth...The food was tasteless and I am suprise this is in the time out magazine.

  9. ATTRAPE TOURISTE - V&J (14 Aug 2010 - 01:30)

    Au début nous sommes rentrés, le cadre avait l'air chaleureux l'ambiance cosy (mise a part le bar sale). Nous avons commandé des tapas. Elles sont bien arrivé, mais nous avons fait "l'erreur" de demander de la mayonnaise...
    Nous avons du nous y reprendre à trois fois à 10 minutes d'intervalle pour enfin que le serveur nous en amène alors que les plats étaient devenus froids. Là il nous dit avec ironie qu'elle était "loin" et nous fait une remarque sur les plats qu'on avait choisi. On lui a aussitôt dit que c'était inadmissible (l'attente et le ton sur lequel il nous "parlait"). On lui dit donc qu'on ne souhaitait pas payer pour ce plat. C'est à ce moment précis qu'il nous a menacé physiquement sans même essayer de parler. Le patron s'en est mélé mais n'a même pas fait preuve de courtoisie lui non plus.
    Nous sommes finalement partis, totalement décu d'un accueil si peu chaleureux.
    Les tapas qu'il font sont banals donc bon.
    Mais si vous souhaiter passer une bonne soirée c'est un endroit à éviter.

  11. Bar El Tropezon 4 visits - MC. (18 Jul 2009 - 01:16)

    On the way from our hotel room to the restaurant we passed through the plaza in front of city hall. On both Friday and Saturday nights we were lucky enough to performances by the castellers, with several different clubs in a sort of exhibition/friendly competition

    the food at the Bar El Tropezon is as delicious as it is unpretentious. some little dishes, like the spicy sausages, deserve special mention. it is served with lots of hunks of wonderfully ordinary bread to soak up any of the scant oil that dare to venture from the confines of the taut, tender natural membrane that encases the randomly sized little morsels. meaty and just the right amount of spice. the perfect blend.

    the brava potatoes are just as good as they say they are. the suace here is wonderfully garlicky, as compared to other places that do a hot pepper sort of sauce. i had them 3 of the four visits i recently paid to Bar El Tropezon.

    the eggplant (aubergine/berenjena(?)) was another important dish. perfectly roasted with red peppers, olives, and i don't know what else, perfectly wreathed with a healthy spash of olive oil. i think we had it all 4 visits. to me, delcious!

    if you like really good food, served in a typically quirky funky backroom of a bar type setting, at entirely reasonable prices, you should put this place on your itenirary.

    if you add the fact that this place is open when a LOT of restaurants are closed, it really becomes apparent that this little place is a treasure! easy to walk to from about anywhere on Las Ramblas, if you know where you are going.

    alas, i didn't get my directions straight and i spent about 30 minutes walking around in circles in search of the place. seems funny, now.

    of course, that won't happen to you.

    Superb food, great atmosphere. Drink the carafes of hous wine as the small bottles are very expensive.
