Incredible tapas - would definitely go again

Went here with a few friends one evening as we heard the tapas was great. Should have booked as had to wait a little while but it was worth it as the food was delicious!

Nice ambiance, service was ok and the food was tasty however even the 'mains' not in the tapas section of the menu, tapas sized. Also the price was a little high considering the size of the portions. Having to get more food after visiting a restaurant says it all!

I can't really say any more! Excellent food, excellent service, excellent atmosphere. We found this place completely by chance after our walking tour guide recommended the area for the best tapas and couldn't have done better. I will definitely be back on my next visit to Barcelona.

We waited for 10 minutes before anybody came to serve us. My burger took half an hour to deliver, my wifes fried fish arrived 15 minutes before it! Prices are on the high side of average and portions on the small side of average. Both the the fish and the burger were very good quality. No apology was offered for... More

Good food, staff that doesn't speak English very well what is kind of charming in our opinion. Good value for money. They also have room upstairs. Downstairs it is veryy narrow, but this gives a nice atmosphere with exits on both sides of the restaurant. Tip: try to be seated downstairs, so you have a nice view of the bar... More

Every dish we had was really good. The waiters are very nice and the service is good. Also the wine we picked out was above average. It's not the cheapest place to go, because the dishes are small, you have to choose 2, but in comparing to the quality it's worth it.

We had a small selection of tapas for lunch, all some of the best we had during our stay. The mini-burgers and the entrecote especially good. Seems like the crew are proud of their work. Small and cosy.

Every plate we had was cooked brilliantly. The menu has clearly been thought out very well. It's a great little place and the atmosphere is just right. Service was impeccable Nd the prices very reasonable. Would definitely go back here. Nothing negative to say about the place.

Excellent food in a scenic back courtyard. We didn't want to leave! Try the steak tapas, and mushroom risotto for sure!

We saw the menu while wandering down the street and went back in the evening. This was a great meal! The food was very creative and tasty, far better than most other tapas. In California, we'd refer to this as a tasting menu.

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

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.
