La Flauta is located a 5-10 min walk from plaza Catalunya in Eixample. We didn't make a reservation, so after giving the host our name he told us that we should expect waiting 30-40 minutes for a table, which was 15 minutes in reality. The food is decently priced and exceptional in quality. The clientele is predominantly local, which is... More

We went to flauta on the recommdation of our concierge and he was correct that it is a great spot for a wide variety of Catalan tapas. That is.... If you enjoy Catalan... We discovered it is not our favorite cuisine, however this place is very popular and well liked by the locals... Nice try...

My husband and I ate here for dinner on Friday night. We arrived just after 8:30 and got a table outside straight away, 5 minutes later people were queuing to get a seat. The tapas was lovely, very fresh and arrived quickly. The service was exceptional, very attentive and friendly regardless of how busy they were. A must try.

We ate here as the queues the previous night made it look like the place to get tapas. We felt a little let down, the tapas didn't live up to expectations and service wasn't great as not very attentive or friendly. We left without trying desert as the waiters were too busy trying to get everyone seated to notice we'd... More

I was advised by locals to go there. No reservation needed. On arrival was told it could take 10 minutes but because so much was going on around the bar with all the displayed tapas time flew. Once seated got quickly the drinks and the food came as and when it was ready to be eaten. Very tasty and unusual.

We were a bit put off by the shop front, as it seemed like a regular "brasserie" kind of restaurant-cum-bar. And more importantly, we had found the one on Balmes and not the one on Arribau (not sure if they moved or if there's a second restaurant), so we were a bit doubtful. But still, we went it and were... More

Small but busy modern Spanish restaurant. Close to our hotel. Food is very tasty and service is great. If your staying in area it's a must eat. May try and get there early as it's gets extremely busy after 8.

Great tapas and very good service. We ate here several ties last week and the food was very fresh and delicious. Nice daily assortment of tapas that wasn't on the menu as well. Great service :) Highly recommend!

Had several tapas here and they were very good. If you like sangria, get them to make their cava sparkling wine with fruit - it is delicious!!! The only downside is the service, not impressed at all for such a highly recommended restaurant.
