Chinese dumplings (aka "exotic tapas") and artisan beers? It was a mix so unlikely that Mosquito was always bound to be an instant hit... especially as it was one of the first craft beer bars in Barcelona (thank God there are many more options now!). Despite its location on a hidden backstreet of Born the restaurant is busy every night and reservations are essential (or else get there early). In fact they are so busy here they don't seem to have had time to translate their menu into either English - or even Spanish! Currently you have to navigate a tick box "laundry menu" written in Chinese and Catalan only. It kind of adds to the fun, even if the staff's feigned smiles suggest they are tired of explaining it night after night. A small portion of dumplings (boiled, fried or steamed) costs around 4-5 euros, and fillings include meat, seafood and vegetarian options, whilst the extensive beer list makes propping up the bar a viable option too.

Love it

Really cool place to get something a bit different to eat, and the location is good too. They have tapas-style Asian food here, and I liked everything we ate here.

The only downside is that it's always pretty busy. We could have waited a little longer for a table, but I didn't mind eating at the bar.

Good place, hip atmosphere, young people and good dumplings. I agree with the other reviewer, slightly overrated and hard to get a table though...

Great place but I can never get a table! Seems overly popular... it's good but not THAT good, especially when you consider you're in Barcelona!
