There are no seats, only tall tables (not ideal for kids or very short people). If you do not want to wait, arrive before 1:15 as tables fill by 1:30. It gives an authentic BCN experience, and you feel cool just for eating there. Great service: delicious recommendations; Cava glass filled to the tippy top; friendly and amazing multitasking bargirl.... More

This place seem to focus on seafood and the price was cheap although the portion size was small. What I didn't like was that all the seafood dishes were cold and they liked to drench some of the dishes in sauces or vinaigrette to the point that you aren't tasting the seafood. If you do come here, get the salmon... More

This is for me the best tapas place in Barcelona. I want to come back every day to try all of their nice tapas and wines! Typical Spanish tapas bar with a lot of light, no seats, delicious tapas and very friendly staff. Cheap and cheerful, just the best.

I love this place, and I hope that they will open several bars like this one in Barcelona. Their tapas are great, especially the salmon, yogurt and honey, which tastes heavenly. We ate there 3 times during our vacation, which lasted 6 days. Moreover, it is also quite cheap. The only minus is that there is very little space and... More

Would recommend to anyone looking to have some nice tapas away from the overpriced and not as good Las Ramblas. Only thing I'd change in the place is the lighting to something a bit more mood setting but that is only a small thing.

Interesting place, this. It's essentially a bar behind which a couple of people serve tapas and drinks. The tapas themselves range from okay to very good, I tried quite a few. The best one I actually got when I told the guy behind the bar to put together whatever he thought was good, and I got some Catalan cheese with... More

I don't really get all the hype for this place. I went because everyone seems to be spouting off about how great it is but it's just tinned food put on (an admittedly quite nice little piece of) bread, and that's it. The space is quite unique and the selection of booze is slightly overwhelming. There are better places for... More

This wee little bodega has to be one of my most favorite places to eat at. Small, tight and cramped, it really is how I imaged Barcelona to be. We arrived to a pack restaurant around 9:30 pm, and just by luck found ourselves at the front counter. I had the house beer and it was fantastic. Flavorfull and nutty,... More

Believe the reviews - the food is great and staff helpful. As an outsider, it seems authentic and not touristy. Was also recommended by our cooking class teacher (who is a local).

We decided to try based on Trip advisor reviews and also because it was close to Montjuic castle which we visited the same day. It was around 3PM and the place was completely packed, to the degree that I doubted we would be able to make to the bar! You really need to fight to make your order and to... More
