Cozy little tapas place with top food and top class service!

Based on high rating on tripadvisor, we picked this restaurant for our first ever authentic tapas experience. And WOW! What an experience it was! Bodega Biarritz 1881 is in one of the exits of Placa Reial, on the Carrer del Vidre. And Placa Reial is aside the La Rambla. We got down at the... read more

Fabulous food, but this bar is tiny - you can either sit at the bar or at very small tables for two. Nowhere else to sit - not suitable for groups. The food is amazing and not expensive. You can see everything and choose a lot or a little - but some of the portions are huge. The cocktails are... More

We were looking for a relaxed tapas dinner in Barcelona and we weren't disappointed. Fantastic friendly atmosphere, multi-lingual staff with delicious food and house wine. The best part is that you can see all of the food on the bar before you order it - a great experience and would definitely return.

I had seen the many rave reviews for this small tapas bar and thought we would give it a go. We arrived too early the first time, it doesnt open till 5pm. So we came back later. Luckily it wasnt busy as the previous reviews suggested, so all five of us got seats at the bar. We tried almost everything... More

This tapas bar is fabulous! Great atmosphere, trilingual (English, French, Spanish), friendly, helpful staff. Great house Rioja (that goes well with the tapas) and Mojitos. Amazing, high quality tapas - everything is good. You select what you want from the bar then they hear it up and serve. Maybe a bit tourist driven, but great quality...

With so many good options for food in Barcelona, it says something that we went BACK to this little place two days in a row. Loved the vibe, the food, and the Mojitos. It's been in the same family for 4 generations! Sit at the bar, the barrel tables are a bit uncomfortable.

Thank you for the reviews. I took your advice and arrived early-glad I did as I got a seat at the bar. The service was amazing and they were very patient. We had never eaten in a proper tapas bar before but he explained what every dish was. It all sounded delicious so we ended up eating soooooo much food.... More

We stayed in a nearby hostel and were looking for a spot that had kind of a local, warm, less touristy vibe. We popped into this spot in the beginning of the night before all our tapas crawling festivities and it was easily the best spot we went to. I loved the warm, unique atmosphere and felt a local,small, mom... More

Beyond having superior tapas, the atmosphere is comfortable and the people are welcoming. Even got us in within five minutes when went back the second night. Can't say enough!
