We sought this place out and so glad we bothered to find it. The food was amazing and great value and was certainly what we wanted for a quick tapas bite.

We were advised from a local to visit this Tapas Bar near to the Ramblas, and we have eaten there each 10 PINTXO's. They have a cold and warm variety of tapas/pintchos, all very fresh, but it is each tapa at 1,95 euro. Our bill was 46,80 euros included 3 cola's. It's not cheap, but it was excellent, and we...

We went here on our last night in Barcelona. We had going to Euskal Extea a couple nights prior. One thing I will note is that the selection of pinchos was very similar to those at Euskal. I'm not all that versed in pinchos but many were the same. Some of the hot pinchos were unique. A couple sausages (including... More

Great little bar serving an excellent choice of pintxos tapas. Great range of pintxos to choice from that would suite all taste buds. Don't be tempted to eat too many at once as they are bringing out different ones all the time, including hot food such as Chorizo and croquettes. Each stick works out at 1.95 euros which is not...

A fantastic option for Basque food in the centre of Barcelona. It's reasonably priced and the pinxos (tapas on sliced baguette) make the perfect snack.

This easy-to-find restaurant serves great pintxos, but also is happy to seat guests for an early (for Spain) dinner. The food, service and wine list cannot be beat, and the prices are reasonable. We went there twice the week we were in Barcelona, and once more two weeks later on our way to the airport. The waiters are very happy... More

Whenever in Barcelona, we pay a visit to Irati and always love it. It is a small place very central that serves the best tapas I have ever tried. These are from the Basque country. Amazing!
