The place is cool and has a nice terrace. Nice mini burgers and classic tapas from spain. Not super cheap but fair prices taking into account the area of the restaurant.

Great tapas in a warm lovely atmosphere in the old quarter Born of Barcelona. The staff is friendly and will try everything to get you a table even without reservation. But of course reservation is recommended.

If you are staying in the Born, you should try to have a dinner here. They do tapas more inventive and with more quality than most. The upstairs space is warm and embraces the small building. Prices were reasonable--4 of us 113 Euros and we ate a good bit plus wine. As others have noted, service was not attentive, but... More

Stopped by Tantarantana by accident and never regretted it. Tried a few of the small dishes which added up to a great evening meal. The risotto with mushrooms was great, and the eggplants different and unexpected, but nice as well. We were fortunate to come in prior to all those who had made reservations, and the locals having dinner. A... More

We couldn't find space for lunch so we booked a table for dinner. My daughter loved the chicken wings while we enjoyed the bean and squid pan. Fried artichoke was also very good. Atmosphere was nice, waiters were friendly. We felt a little cold because our table was at the ground floor. Someone should keep an eye on the two... More

Visited this restaurant with family for a birthday meal and thoroughly enjoyed it. We ordered a selection of tapas and each dish was absolutely delicious. The patatas bravas and sardines with avacado dish were our favourites! We sat outdoors which looked out onto the square, and discovered later that the indoor seating was lovely also. I was slightly disappointed that... More

Although tapas were really good, we were attended by an unfriendly bartender that made our dinner not good at all.......

We got there late afternoon, after the typical lunchtime. Yet, there was no problem. We got nice selection of tapas, good wine, nice beer. We sat outdoors, and got so lazy that we did not want to go out. Nice, relaxing place in an unusual surrounding. Food was very good, service excellent. The bill was moderate. Ticks all the boxes,...

Stopped here for lunch. Had great tapas and would recommend this place. We sat on a few tables outside which had a very nice ambience in a quiet square yet central Barcelona. Service was OK, and the tapas all cooked fresh and of good quality yet not too expensive.
