Serranitos...yum!

Visited 2 of these outlets on the Passeig de Gracia last week, one early evening and one late lunch time. No complaints whaysoever about the service or quality of our choices on either occasion though it does help if one has experience of differing types of tapas. The place mats show small pictures... read more

The food sucked !!! . Went there based on reviews here. We order 10 dishes , all tasted pretty much the same with slices of chewy bread at the bottom and canned food on top. Not definitely a good value of money consider these kinds of junks ingredients. The waiter, the indian one, was well...looked arrogant when he take order... More

It's a good place to go if you want to try a large variety of tapas, and it's good value for money too. Our food came very quickly, so also recommended if you're in a hurry!

We came here on Saturday evening for dinner. The restaurant was close to our hotel and we were too lazy to walk or travel elsewhere. The place was full, not surprising for Saturday evening, but many of the guests were locals. The tapas dishes were nice but not special. The deserts were not good, avoid them if you go there....

Luckily we've had a bad experience in another place and end up here. Cheaper and far better. I recommend this if you just want some typical pintxos or as they also call it here Montaditos or Tapas in the rest of Spai

I lived two years in basque country so my level of expectation was very high. They have great variety of typical basque tapas with nice level of quality.
