A must go in a lovely street

Lovely tapas served by informative, friendly staff. Top quality food at reasonable prices. We got there early, as advised by previous reviewers. If you are after traditional food in a relaxed setting, this will take some beating. I am sure we will visit again.

A typical Spanish tapas! A good varieties of tapas on the menu. The foods were amazing, right portions and value for money. I believe you should try to get there at around 19:30 as the locals starts to come later on and will be difficult to get a place.

We were staying in Poblenou and wanted to eat somewhere local, preferably tapas. We consulted TripAdvisor and it certainly didn't let us down with this little gem! It is a relatively small restaurant, but was packed to the rafters (even on a Wednesday night!) and we were asked to wait for around twenty minutes for a table. It felt as... More

This is a great find! We came here for dinner- 4 of us- and could happily have ordered everything on the menu- and almost did. Every tapa as delicious- but particularly loved the one with the fried eggs. You won't necessarily find all (most of) the tapas you're used to so this is a great place to be adventurous and... More

Staff very friendly and food delicious. Especially their version of the patatas bravas and the tuna tataki. The scallops could have been a bit more grilled (now very soft), but overall we really enjoyed our meal here. We sat in the separate space in the back, where there's a bit less noise than inside.

Good relation price-quality. All the food was excellent for a fair price. The place is unique with an especial decoration. I would say: trendy. The dessert was delicious, as well the enormous glass of sangria, but 7,5 eur each. The rest of the prices, as I said, really fair

We live in Poblenou and we decided to try this small restaurant which most reviews said we could find really trendy tapas. So we went there, without reservation, as they do not accept reservations. We tried some bravas (fried potatoes with spicy sauce) some traditional croquetes, a aubergine (eggplant) with rosemary and honey, and we were specially surprised with the... More

Amazing food and generous portions for the price. Would go again without hesitation. The eggplant fry and vegetable risotto were delicious vegetarian options. Fried chicken was boss.

Staying in Poblenou

Neighborhood Profile
Poblenou
The futuristic Agbar Tower stands out from Barcelona's skyline in Poblenou. It is no coincidence then that this area of town is the newly crowned technological park of the city, its own mini Silicon Valley containing a tech incubator (Barcelona Activa) as well as a host of local and international high tech companies. To accommodate the onrush of new residents and workers, the area of Poblenou has seen a surge of activity in new high-rise residential buildings and two top-notch shopping centers catering to everyone's need. The ambiance of this area is calmer than the city center and the beautifully relaxing Bogatell Beach, popular with locals, is just a handful of blocks away.
