Tony Montañez es un capo. He provided one of the best experiences during our trip to Barcelona. From Miami, we are eternally grateful. Great venue. Excellent atmosphere. Can't wait to go back. Great service, very friendly. Delicious tapas. Perfect experience. Con todo el cariño del Mundo y muy agradecidos, Isa & Chris de Miami

We went to try La Taberna del Cobre, but there is another restaurant now called "El Guindilla" and its not very good. Only ok. Boring tapas!

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.

In contrast to Sagradi in the same square, the staff are friendly and helpful and the food is great. Try the sardines for lunch. An added bonus comes in the form of the entertainment from various acts passing through, some... More
