Great atmosphere, add it to your list!

We got there around 8pm and there was already a long wait, but vibe looked great so we decided it was worth the wait. We ended up sitting at the bar within a few minutes of getting there, the food was AWESOME, service was great and met great people. We wished we could have sat outside, nonetheless... read more

Great food, I really enjoyed the tapas there and the local wine that one of the guests there recommended us. Great atmosphere, very friendly staff. Only issue is that most of the times you have to wait a long time since there is no reservation, but we came wrote our names and went to very nice walk so its was... More

We had a couple of recommendations for this restaurant - it was extremely busy as they don't take reservations but the wait time was only about 20 mins. The bar was packed but the atmosphere was great and the staff were very efficient. We had a drink at the bar whilst waiting. There is an extensive tapas menu as well... More

Lively, crowded tapas restaurant. Theta always a line. .be prepared to wait for over 30 minutes ( can walk the neighborhood) but it's worth the wait.

Because of the high rates on TA we decided to check out this restaurant (without reservation), but it looked like everybody in Barcelona had the same plan. The place was crowded with waiting people and it seemed a bit chaotic, but the lady at the desk managed to stay friendly and professional. After waiting 1,5 hours we finally could sit... More

We have tried so many tapas places in Barcelona, and this one is far the best and our favourite! They have a huge range and are reasonably priced. The regular menu has the basics - patatas bravas (yummy!), fried baby squid (also yummy) but check out the daily menu which never fails to please. We had an exquisite mushroom, potato... More

The food was great! We enjoy of a few tapas, drank sangria and a couple of whiskies, at the end we enjoy of a marvelous cake that have a little bit of rum and whipped cream at its top. Very Recommended!

Lots of terrible places to eat in Barcelona, look good and genuine on the outside but serve really bad food dressed up as authentic tapas - I work in Barcelona a couple of times a month and often fall foul of the Barcelona tapas bar...I expected the same from this one, incredibly busy, full of tourists being very centrally located...for...

Great Barcelona location, active all day long when surrounding places are empty! Great food, great service and good ambiance. Located in Rambla Catalunya. Cannot go wrong.

I would compare this place with a big hollywood production, lot of lights, lot of explosions, lots of artifice, but when you get to the main and important thing, the place leaves you icy cold. Their food has no soul, perhaps due to the fact that it has been exposed to air an elements for hours (sanitary authorities may have... More

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.
