Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Brilliant find, great food and lovely staff - especially Angel who was extremely accommodating. I'd highly recommend the tapas! Prices slightly higher but 100% worth it

My entrecôte was delicious - Cristian and everyone else was super friendly. Glad I decided to come here instead of the other restaurants in the plaza. One of the better steaks I’ve had.

Went here as the reviews were good. My son had sea bass and he said it was really good. Myself and the wife both had seafood paella. It tasted ok but for the money it was terrible. Our dish each had one prawn one mussel...one small ring of squid and not much else but rice. Not sure if they ran out of seafood but was the worst paella we have had in Barcelona. Felt like we were ripped off but our son enjoyed his fish a lot. Service was also very average.More

We had the most amazing lunch at Glacier today. We mainly had tapas on our break. We loved the olives, eggplant, mussels, hummus, Spanish omelette (we ordered a second one it was so good) and a few other small plates. The service was fantastic and...quick! Ahiam and Lucas took fantastic care of us. We will definitely be back on our next trip.More

We had drinks and tapas at Glaciar restaurant on Saturday 1st June. Our waiter, Angel was so attentive and went above and beyond for us. An amazing mix of professionalism and humour made our evening!! Angel is a credit to the restaurant!

Chose the Glaciar for our 50th wedding anniversary celebration because reviews suggested it served the best Paella in Barcelona. The other attraction was the setting in 'Royal Square'. Fantastic setting with street performers (acrobats musicians,jugglers) all surrounded by lovely buildings. It was an experience of...typical Catalan weekend life. Families and young people enjoying fun. food and drink. The restaurant staff couldn't have been more friendly and attentive. Food and wine was excellent. Prices slightly above many restaurants in Barcelona, it is situated just off the Famous La Rambla, but still good value for money.More
