A great find in Barceloneta. Busy bar full of locals and a few tourists. All the food we tried was great. Service can be a bit slow occasionally but they are super busy and do their best. All waiters were very friendly and helpful. We managed to get a table easily and quickly on both nights we ate there. Tried... More

Visited here with the missus on our stay in Barcelona. We wanted to experience a traditional tapas bar and this went some way to achieving that goal. The restaurant cum bar was packed, and after a short wait we managed to get the waiter to understand that we wanted some food. My Catalan is not the best and neither is... More

Not sure what the last few reviews are about. this place is very good! Two foodies from Montreal and we have been twice and plan on going again! The Catalonian Bread was delish! The Squid amazing! and the "Callos" aka Tripe was so good! go here if you have a chance! oh ya, the wine is very good and inexpensive!

Seriously don't know why this place gets such rave reviews. Food was awful. Service was poor. Had to wait 20 minutes for bill.

This is the place to feel Barceloneta with Estrella beer and the usual mix of young local and tourist crowd. This is not rhe best place for tapas but most of them good most of fhe time

Looked promising on passing a few times. Couldn't get a table at other places so gave this a go as two tables were free inside. It's visited by locals and tourists. Service was not polite. Waiter was preoccupied and not very presentable or accommodating to children. Half of the dishes ordered were below average. Some dry, some not well flavoured.... More

My husband, 2 children and I visited this restaurant for tapas based on a recommendation from our tour guide. It was amazing! We had to go back on a 2nd day. One of our children is super picky but even with our limited Spanish, they were able to accomodate all of our requests. The seafood was especially amazing.

This place was recommended by the receptionist at our hostel. It's slightly off the tourist track near the beach. The tapas is amazing, and the prices are also reasonable. There is always a wait for a table but it is worth it. We did struggle to get the bill when we were ready to leave as they were so busy,... More
