Great prices, very good pintxos

More pintxos than tapas, this little place filled up fast. Helpful service with menus in English and Catalan. Would highly recommend the black squid ink rice -- it was delicious! Other menu items were very good including the anchovies in oil (on bread, of course). The prices were very reasonable.

Everything here is perfect. The service food and atmosphere. We went there in our first night in Barcelona and thought it was so good that we went back our last night. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Good food and good service! Loved the egg-plant chips with feta and honey, perfect flavour balance. The other tapas were also good. The place fills up quickly after 8, so be early if you want to sit.

We came here because TripAdvisor reviews were very good. But we did not loved it. It is a very good value especially in this touristic street of Gracia, but the food was not the best. The service is very good though. We really liked the green fried peppers (Peppers del Padron) but all the rest was quite oily / greasy... More

We went here after reading all the reviews on TA and were not disappointed. Quaint little spot with a real buzz to it by 9:30-10pm. Food and local wine were both lovely- the highlights being the sweet cheese+jam and the patatas. The staff were lovely and gave us a free truffle for dessert as we were leaving. The whole bill...

It's simply... a piece of a northern tapas bar in BCN. It's a must... a fantastic place to meet "normal" people... several types of tapas with an excellent txacoli wine... :)

Came here numerous times for tapas. The older waiter was super friendly and explained is everything on the menu. Get here around 9pm and they just consistently bring out fresh tapas every 10 minutes. We made the mistake the first time ordering a bunch of tapas at once instead of just ordering two and then waiting for the fresh ones.... More

The place offers excellent basque pintxos (like tapas, but in the form of toppings on a piece of bread) for 1,90 a piece, both hot and cold. All that I tasted were delightful, especially the ones with goat's cheese and fig. Various drinks are available, but you must sample the Basque sidra so that you can see how it is... More

Staying in Gracia

Neighborhood Profile
Gracia
Gracia literally stands out from the pack. It used to be an independent town until late into the 19th century. Though it’s just a short commute away from the center, a visit here feels like you’re in a whole different city. The bohemian vibe has drawn many international artists to this area, resulting in a wide selection of galleries, live music and artsy boutique stores. The nightlife is centered around the vibrant Gracia’s plaças, where young and old gather to enjoy a drink outside. Carrer de Verdi, its main street, offers affordable restaurants and a movie theater that screens new as well as classic films in their original language. However Gracia's greatest treasure lies just up the hill at Guell Park, where Antoni Gaudi's vibrant and revolutionary art sculptures stand atop unequaled views of Barcelona.
