Good tapas, great location. Very quiet when we visited for a quick lunch so the service was very quick and attentive. Prices seem reasonable considering quality of the tapas and the location.

We went here during our Inter-Rail trip and my god it was the best tapas I've ever eaten. It had the best selection of seafood, chicken, vegetarian, and was only a few euros per dish. We all ordered 3-4 each but ended up sharing what with all of them looking delicious! And the best pudding was the chocolate pyramid with... More

Three of us dropped in based on a recommendation and weren't disappointed. The menu is fun and the pictures a big help - service was good and food delivered fast. We ordered three times with 2 dishes each to share. Two delicious bottles of Marques de Cacere topped off a great evening..

Near to Casa Batllo and around the corner from Passeig de Gracia and Placa Catalunya so really well located. Popped in to wait for a friend and ended up spending a couple of hours here. Varied selection of gin and tonic which is a popular drink in Spain and the tapas was well cooked and tasty. The service was a... More

We just needed a bite to eat and we are always having trouble with menus. Not only was most of the food on display the lovely waitress provided us with a menu in several languages and then also proceeded to give us some recommendations of her favourites. The special of the day was a gazpacho which was excellent as were... More

Seriously, it deserves zero. We ate her late in the evening. The place was chaotic, not because of the customers (very few) but for the disorganization of the place. We went for some small tapas. Each of them were horrible. The waitress recommended us some patatas bravas with other vegetables...and all we got was some cold chips with a surprise... More

This centrally located restaurant has an excellent selection of small bites called pinchos or pintxos. Their menu depicts each pintxo served which makes selection easier as there are many to enjoy. Everything is fresh and delightful. We sat at the bar and had a wonderful and tasty experience. Everyone was very friendly and helpful with making recommendations on what to... More

This place was our occasional pit spot after much walking and sightseeing. A good variety of tapas…menu reflects the images of your plate matt making it easier to see what you're getting. Average 3 tapas each for a quick pit stop; it was bustling with local customers, so for me that is a good sign. bueno appetito and have a... More

This is the first tapas bar I tried in Barcelona, hungry and jet lagged after an over night flight from the US. A fellow patron at the bar explained to me that the tapas served here are in the Basque tradition. At any rate , three tapas I tried, all served on olive infused toast, very fair to excellent. The...
