Excellent tapas bar in Barcelona, it's getting quite refined and it offers a lot of interesting dishes. Located in the Barri Gothic.

The girl behind the counter was great and spoke perfect english. I was there early in the evening so there was plenty of room however, I think had I arrived later the place would be packed. All of the pintxos I had were delicious and the quality of the seafood was top notch. Definitely would recommend this place to everyone!

Really cool place right off las ramblas with a cool atmosphere and a nice selection of tapas! Each one is like 1.90 and you can try as many as you want, but 5 each filled us up great!

After a long morning wandering around Barcelona we decided to come to Irati for a quick snack, we had the pintxo tour vouchers which means you can go to all the Sagardi restaurants around the city. As soon as we walked in we were greated in excellent english and offered a plate and a drink. There is so much choice... More

Hard to believe that a place that offers this quality is located so close to Las Ramblas, where food standards are low, or non-existent. We had amazing snacks from northern Spain, inexpensive and really flavoursome. Service was impeccable and the ambience was lively and with a nice mixture of locals and tourists. Highly recomended

We stopped in for the tapas, but it is stand up only, and we were tired from a full day of walking around the city, so we opted to sit in the restaurant portion of the building. Once we sat down and ordered drinks, we discovered to sit in the dining area, you could only order from the menu. The... More

Great little tapas place off Las Ramblas. Perfect for lunch or a snack between a late brekkie and dinner. Really enjoyed it, lovely staff and felt really local. Food was excellent quality and would recommend it. Tip: if you have never been to this sort of bar/restaurant before, you literally just ask for a plate and help yourself and they... More

We came late and hungry, and quickly ate a variety of quality tapas, which were delicious. The place is small and crowded with locals and you eat standing. Very satisfying local experience!
