Pincos

Very good Pinchos and good service. We stoped for a quick lunch and shared 10 Pinchos and a beer. Try this place out when you pass by.

Whenever we go to Barcelona we have dinner in this restaurant, and this time has been a disaster. The food was good, as always, but the staff was a horror. The sangria was full of hairs and other things, the glasses were dirty and it took them long 45 minutes to take the last "montadito" to us. I do not... More

Even it is a bit touristy it is always the first place we go to when we come to Barcelona. We love the athomsphere and we really liked it this time that they were very helpful with our 9 month old baby. The food is great, the drinks are perfect, only downturn is that they sell german beer instead of... More

Right on the Placa de Catalunya but not touristy. Great place to get a feel for tapas and sangria. The tapas are very good - good variety, good prices, and a great atmosphere that welcomes first-timers

The tapas looked great and the menus were really helpful but the food did not taste of a lot. The seats were ripped and a bit scruffy

We were 17 people and wanted badly a place where we could have good tapas. And walking back from the ramblas to our huge appartment we found la txapela. Tasted few tapas at the bar and made the reservation for the night. They have tables downstairs which are perfect for groups. We loved the fact that you can choose your... More

We visited this tapas bar on 2 occasions, for a mid morning drink and a few tapas and during the evening. On both occasions the food was excellent. There is huge variety and the quality is always high. Depending on your appetite I'd recommend ordering 2 each for a snack or 4-5 each for lunch. The service was great usually... More

Always a bit reluctant to eat on a busy street, but we were starving. Waiter found us a table very quickly (good system). Food was REALLY tasty. Excellent value ( 6 tapas, 2 beers, a wine and coffer under 25€). Buffered from traffic noise by a screen and very wide pavement. Go there! You'l enjoy it. We had nine different... More

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.
