Last day in Barcelona and after the mostly disappointing food journey I've had so far, I decided to seek out TripAdvisor's help in finding a great tapas place. This was the first place that came up and it did not disappoint. Beautiful tapas, well presented and delicious. Off a side street to the Gothic quarter and thankfully far away enough... More

Just back from a long weekend in Barcelona and I have to recommend this amazing place. The food is fantastic, the staff are excellent and it's very good value for money. There is a seating area at the back of the room, but it's great fun just to stand at the bar and help yourself to the wonderful food. We... More

Their pinchos looked and tasted awesome. When my daughter wanted more mini burgers they made another batch for her- great service and tasty filling food. I'd go back again. Hard to stop eating because the were so good. 1.95 euro/piece was good value too!

Do yourself a favor and walk to this spot just off Ramblas. Awesome tapas bites and drinks at a good price. Workers super friendly as well.

The tapas at Irati Tavern are not from Catalunya, they are Basque, and they are delicious. The best way to eat here is to simply stand at the bar and pick the things that look good. They calculate the cost by counting the different colored toothpicks when you're finished. Try the sparking wine which they serve in an interesting way!

Strange name but fantastic Pintxos, small bread with amazing toppings. Simple pick what you want and pay for the number of toothpicks left. The only problem was the food, it was so good it was hard to stop! They kept topping up with fresh hot delights! Don't miss it!

During my city trip in Barcelona i tried several pinxto bars and this one is for sure my favorite. I also recommend to taste the typical bask wine Txakolina. Sometimes life is just perfect.

Thank you to previous reviewers & Trip Advisor. What a wonderful experience, and my expectations and hopes were already set high before even getting there. Weeks before visiting Barcelona, I found this little restaurant & tapas bar on Trip Advisor & after reading the reviews, made plans to visit. I was looking for a place that locals patronize, was close... More
