I'm sorry to say that the rating don't met our expectations. Instead of waiting 20 min for a table it took 45 min. Steaks was almost raw. Waitress forgot 50% of out tapas but they was on our bill. So, if you plan your evening, choose another restaurant in Barcelona

We got little of everything on their menu. Mojito is excellent - so are different tapas and also the steak and salmon. Cosy environment and attentive staff. Would definitely go there again.

Arrived late to where we were staying and went out in search of a late dinner. We passed by this restaurant and it looked cosy so we went in. Food was lovely. Had a nice bbq taste. We had 6 tapas to share, a bottle of wine and a coffee for about €70. Not bad value. Service good. While we... More

Reserved a table off the cuff for around 21:30 on a Friday night and went off for a cocktail. On our return the staff loudly indicated that our table wasn't ready but the diners at it would be done soon in front of said diners - left my friends and I feeling a little embarrassed, and if it was us...

I was made to feel very welcome as soon as I walked in and was immediately given a table. Great choice of tapas and lovely wine selection to match. As the evening progressed the restaurant was heaving but the staff coped very well and we were not ignored. Lovely atmosphere and décor. Off the beaten track but find it if... More

Nothing at all to dislike, if you can get in. Friendly place serving excellent food. There is an extensive range of food and drink all at reasonable cost. Some of the dishes are offered in two sizes and prices. The Iberico ham and prawn dishes s are quite sublime. Just go for what you are partial to or would like... More

We stumbled across el Callejon up what looked like a cul de sac in the Gothic quarter of Barcelona. Going in turned out to be an excellent decision. The tapas were high quality and the service friendly and efficient. Highly recommended.

The bar staff are friendly and accommodating - just what we needed after a long night of travel. The food is great and the atmosphere even better.

Found this place when could not get in elsewhere, glad we did as it was very good. Great tapas and the staff very friendly. Good value as well unlike the night before on The Ramblas. You will not be disappointed if you eat here.
