Old City Alley Restaurant with Delicious Tapas

When we first arrived for our late night Spanish dinner, the place was hopping! So we took a walk, had a drink and circled back. I'm glad we did! The friendly bar tender remembered us and got us a table near the back of the restaurant. The friendliness continued when we engaged our waitress... read more

Found this small tapas restaurant after a hunt along the main strip, tucked down a side street. Was a perfect little tapas bar, checked table cloths and authentic spanish feel. The tapas was gorgeous and very reasonably priced. For 5 people we shared around 20 dishes and a bottle of cava for 11 euro each. Would recommend and definitely return... More

After a long day of touring I was starved and didn't really want to venture too far from the hotel. This literally was round the corner. It was a non meat day for me. Its always interesting to see how restaurants cater for you. Specially cos I struggle sometimes on these days. The place is lovely, the atmosphere the décor... More

Were stuck for a place to eat after our first choice was closed. Came in on a whim when we saw good reviews on trip advisor. We weren't disappointed. The tapas was served quickly and is good quality for a very reasonable price.

Not sure about all the reviews for this place, some might be fake, everything we ordered was subpar. The bread was soggy, the mushroom dish was too salty and not fresh at all, and everything else was average at best. We had dinner the night before at Arcano and for the exact same price the food was incredible so I... More

This is angood value for money place. Staff is very friendly, englishspeaking and service is swift. Food was of good quality but the selection of wine, drinks and beef was limited. A good place for families with kids.

Went to El Callejon on a late night, and was totally impressed! It has a classic feel to it, and it's right by a few other nice looking Tapas places, but this place felt more traditional and relaxed (not as noisy as a few others). It's great for a date, or for a group that actually wants to talk easily,... More

I spent quite a bit of time walking around looking for one of those little gems, hidden down a side street, as most of the places to eat offer pretty much the same experience. I found El Callejon after consulting Trip Advisor and I'm glad I did. The food was fresh and to an excellent standard and the services was... More

As restaurants go this one very well , staff good , food good , if in Barcelona stay away from the 'strip' for food ., over priced and poor, found this restaurant by accident , more than surprised as we had done 'the strip ' previously , value for money and quaint
