Fodor's Review

There are more than 40 Viena cafés in Catalonia, but this particular branch is always packed with international travelers trying what Mark Bittman of The New York Times once consecrated as "the best sandwich in the world." One wonders if it was the only one he'd ever eaten: the flautas de jamón ibérico (thin bread "flutes" of Ibérico ham anointed with tomato squeezings) here are perfectly adequate but no better than those served in any typical Spanish bar and, at €9, are considerably more expensive. Viena is a pleasant enough place to have a snack, especially when the pianist is playing on the balcony, but it doesn't live up to the hype.
