This place is in a few travel books, so we had to see it. It is well worth a visit and very authentic, you need to time your visit to get a table, as it always seems to be packed. The cava de casa is so cheap and tastes good, the tapas are also very tasty and good value, surprisingly... More

The atmosphere in this place was absolutely buzzing! Authentic tapas - the food was excellent, with really helpful and friendly staff. Reasonable prices too for such a central location in the city. Highly recommended :-)

It's a must do if you go in Barcelona. The tapas were excellent and the staff was very friendly. A little crowded place but with a lovely atmosphere.

The food was excellent. Everything tasted so good you can just keep eating. The ambiance was one of chaos, probably typically Catalan. The guys at the bar know exactly what they need to do to sell, but there being no menu, I suspect that not all customers are equal! You basically order what you see, and the barmen serve you... More

My wife and I stopped in here before going to the Picasso Museum and my god was it fantastic! All of the seafood we had was unbelievable, absolutely delicious. We were tempted to come back but wanted to try a few more places while we were in Barcelona. But I would tell anyone to visit El Xampanyet!

We stopped here for lunch on a Saturday, not expecting to be able to get served once we saw how busy it was, but as we squeezed in the door a table became free and we were lucky enough to be ushered into seats by the waitress! What a great experience, fabulous decor, smells, noise, drinks and the most authentic... More

Excellent tapas and great service! We went twice - managed to get a table our first trip and a spot at the bar our second trip. Highly recomend eating at the bar for the experience. Tapas were the best we had.
