Tonka was by far our favorite place to eat in Barcelona. As we adventure through Europe we always try to find the best local organic restaurants in the area, and thankfully we found Tonka. The food is spectacular with lots of organic and gluten free options. Everything is freshly prepared and the selection was always unique. Yes, you may wait... More

A real treat. the waitng staff were very helpful and friendly, both nights we were the only foreigners, so it seems to be very popular with the locals too.... More

Such great attention to detail (in everything from the food, to the drink, to the menu and the fonts!), and the whole place has a great neighbourhood vibe to it. We were there in the afternoon, and saw a few tourists, and a lot of locals - young families with kids, grandmothers... More

An absolutely brilliant evening. Great food and wine. Really relaxed atmosphere and strangely healthy tapas. The staff are so friendly and help you choose the right dishes that complement each other. Worth a trip off the main drag. Desserts are exceptional!
