Tapas in the Old Town

The place is on a side street, next to Placa Reial. A classic, small Tapas bar, with excellent food, decent prices, lovely atmosphere and service with a smile.

A really nice little tapas bar just off the (most) beaten path. A short walk from the ocean end of the ramblas. Beautifully made tapas displayed on the bar of this narrow bodega. Pick your tapas (€2 - €4 per plate) from the ones displayed with helpful descriptions from the staff who are fairly fluent in English and French (maybe... More

The food was great and the people were very friendly. We had to wait about 25 minutes to get into this small place with only 24 seats, but once we got our seat the lady working the counter came by and explained what all the food was and was very patient with all of our questions. All in all an... More

We were just wandering around the Gothic area, got hungry and wandered into this restaurant not knowing a thing about it. Don't let the small size and interior fool you. WOW, the food food was just great. Great flavors and aromas. You can let the quality of ingredients in each and every dish. We stayed in this area several nights,... More

Fantastic selection of tapas displayed out at the bar, excellent prices too. I will definitely go back. I loved the servers, and they were trilingual which is great for all customers.

We heard about the place and went during our first evening in the city. Off course the place was full so i went again closer to 5 PM ( opening hour ). the bar has great atmosphere, intimate and vibrant altogether and serves a variety of tapas . Don't miss the "hamburgessa", goat cheese pastry and the layered crape. All... More

Excellent tapas. The best we had while in Barcelona. The wait was small at 630pm and well worth it for tapas before dinner. The service was excellent and the food even better. Very authentic. We cannot wait to come back.

I loved the decoration of this small sized restaurant, with spots on tables and on the counter, where you are displayed with a visual fest of all the tapas available. The staff can easily speak several languages and will guid you through all the tappas you are interested in. All the tapas look great and tast as well!

The place is small but you can enjoy great tapas! This is the best tapas experience I had during my stay in Barcelona. The staff is really nice, you can easily talk with them and make the most of the place. I would definitely recommend it!
