We entered initially for a quick wine and a use of their toilet. Immediately impressed by the welcome received. We stayed for more drinks. Tapas. One or two for the road. Handshakes and kisses. An utterly brilliant evening spent here. The food was gorgeous. I can not comment on any fish dishes as neither of us like them, but everything... More

Came here twice during our stay in Barcelona. First time by accident, second time with a clear purpose - to have a great tapa experience! The bar has a friendly vibe about it, especially 'el jefe' Tony is a great host! He served us both times, very friendly and attentive even though the place was busy. He gave us recommendation...

We stumbled across this place during a walk through the city. Great location in a secluded little square. We had a glass of red wine and a few plates of tapas for lunch, all of which were really good.

The service gave the meal this rating. I took a group of 5 Guides a few nights ago - our waiter, Toni, was very attentive and helpful as we ordered a range of dishes for the girls to try, and some additional bits as and when they decided they wanted it. It was also a very reasonable price. Not the... More

Neighborhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighborhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
