Tiny tapas

I really liked this place - great little tapas, fresh and nice. Lots of choice and variety. Long bar, open late.

This restaurant is located in Placa Catalunya. Menu includes around 50 different 'Pinchos' (the Basque version of Tapas), most of them very small, almost all of them served over bread. On the table paper cover you can see photos of the dishes so that you can get an idea of what you are ordering. Also if you see something interesting... More

They had a lot of Tapas, both hot and cold. The menu's available in multiple languages, each tapas on the menu is numbered and there's corresponding pictures, so that's good for tourists. The tapas are quite nice and not too costly. They also allow us to order individually and spilt the bill based on who ordered what and pay by... More

Very nice atmosphere right in the heart of Barcelona, and all of the tapas were delicious. The sangría was very good too.

I didn't enjoy it at all. The food was good. But the service was terrible. The sofa was dirty and diners so crammed. Different menus showed different prices. Somehow they forgot to serve some of the tapas I ordered. Actually they ruined my quality time with friends. Never again 100%

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
