Found this small restaurant during our last trip to Barcelona. Pintxos were so delicious we had to come back again and again. Interior of the taverna was modern and cozy at the same time. What we really liked was the way waiters come from kitchen with freshly made warm pintxos and served pintxos by walking among customers. Yes, I know... More

Our son took the family there. Well priced. Since we had a huge group, we went around lunchtime. Just ask for a plate, order your beverage, help yourself to the pintxos. Keep the picks on the plate so you can pay the correct amount. Ask for some Sidre, the Basque cider. They pour it correctly.

My husband, daughter (12) and I stopped here for some dinner. At first, we weren't too sure about having to stand and exactly how the whole process worked but the bartender (a young, super friendly guy) explained it and told us we should stay. Glad he did, because we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. I thought the 1.95Euro per piece was reasonable... More

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.

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
