Perfect place for tapas and a beer

We visited this bar several times over the weekend that we spent in Barcelona. It was close to our hotel and they have a variety of tapas. I would recommend the chicken wings, these are really nice! Service is good and people are very kind.

We just stopped for a drink before our dinner reservation nearby. Tempted by the calamari tapas and didn't regret the decision! Fresh and delicious. Nice place to people watch in a busy and popular area. Bit pricey. Quick and pleasant service though.

Friendly staff, who are willing to cross the street! First time was for an espresso (perfecto!) and beer. Such nice service and great view of the Rambla de Raval, we went back for tapas after going to MACBA. Patas Bravas were terrific as were the ham croquette...( something with patatas + jamon. Holy yum!

Visited and were sat by window . Asked if we were English and then a new waiter appeared. Took the Degustation Tapas menu at 19 euro per head for 2 with one drink. food served barely warm. Like it was microwaved several minutes before. Gormless women on counter talking to Spanish friends. Croquettes were ok . Salad ok. Meatball thing... More

We shared a couple of tapas and were pleased with the quality. Wait staff were friendly but not always available, but, then, we were there at an off time. Lovely atmosphere on the Rambla del Raval with neighborhood families strolling through the square and parakeets in the palms trees.

We went there because of a tapas festival on a busy Friday evening - more than 100 places in Barcelona offer something special for 10 days. Their tapas was so far the best we tasted, although not extraordinary, and we also ordered tomato bread and a chickpea dish to share - very tasty. We wanted to have dessert as well,... More

Looking in at this restaurant on a dark November evening, the interior seemed very appealing. It is modern, trendy with a black decor. It lacks atmosphere when inside but the food was very good. We had swordfish and risotto - the risotto was particularly good. A carrot cake and chocolate ice cream dessert was delicious and certainly the highlight.

Stopped by for a beer today with a friend. The waitress explained to us (In Spanish) that we needed to sit at a different table if we were only ordering drinks, which was totally fine! I did ask her to please repeat her sentence more slowly since my Spanish is not the best, and I guess that was my mistake.... More

Staying in El Raval

Neighborhood Profile
El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
