You can try many different pinchos for a fair price. They are great and fast as you just pick them from the balcony. The waiter also passes offering the hot ones. It's the type of finger food bar, there is no place to seat. Great to try some real Spanish stuff.

We went here on a Sunday night and ate at the front bar after reading the great reviews. We were not disappointed! You do stand as mentioned but it is a great, friendly atmosphe. The food was tasty, the staff are very helpful, and attentive considering how busy it is. They are also happy to assist those English speaking. My... More

Recommended by our concierge as a place for a tapas dinner but we were hungry and that's where the bill mounted up. The system is to reserve your toothpicks, that skewer every item (except those on little plastic spoons) and they are used to charge for the meal. Each costs €2.00 and it is not hard to have 15 mouthfulls... More

In my opinion one of the best pinxtos experiences in Spain. I know thats a big call but hey this place is great. The food is always fresh because it is always being eaten and replaced. Very Spanish but welcoming of the tourist visit. Dare to be brave and just help yourself to the array of delicious snack foods that... More

Was recommended we go here for Pintxos and glad we did! Beautifully presented, we shared about 14 different Pintxos - some wonderful, some not so wonderful ( personally not our taste). The ones with tuna were especially good. Cordial staff who explained in English the different selections. Knew this was a "standing" type of establishment, but after a full morning... More

The pintxos are beautifully presented and tasty, cheap from the Finnish point of view, but in Barcelona you get the same quality for just a bit less. They constantly go around and suggest some novelties just out the oven, and everything looks good, so it can be difficult to keep your budget. Their list of wines is good. Tourists fill... More

We had a very good meal here; the hake was especially good. I had Lamb trotters which was tasty if a little unusual. They serve tapas which looked lovely but we had been walking for hours and couldn't face eating standing up. There wasn't the option of mixing and matching the a la carte menu and tapas. The down side... More

we made the mistake of going here at 7 pm as we were really hungry. It was empty and absolutely no vibe, but the sandwiches were pretty good. When we walked by this restaurant on another night at 10 pm, it was absolutely crowded with locals and had an amazing vibe. The food alone would not be enough for me... More

Fun, busy, definitely stand in bar for the best experience. Great cashier and server. The food sells itself on its looks and other diners moans and groans of excellence. You really must go and try. Quick, easy, and very fun.

We stopped in shortly after they opened on a Sunday afternoon. Wonderful tapas sitting all over the counter to choose from. The two of us ended up having two glasses of wine each and 7 pintxos each and the bill came to 37 euros. When you are done you just hand in your plate to the person behind the bar... More
