Outdoor tapas

Charming service and really good tapas! We opted for 5 starter dishes and 3 mains between 4 and it was just the right quantity, washed down with a bottle of Rioja in the outside dining area. Particularly good are the fried fish, the mushroom risotto, and the meatballs!

We came here 3 years ago during winter and we tried a lot of the dishes on the menu, my eyes were bigger than my belly but I still managed the lemon pie, which without a doubt is the best lemon pie I have had anywhere...and I have tried a lot. We came just this month, May 2015 and can... More

I have been there with my gf and a friend. The atmosphere was pretty nice but very very laugh (we were at first floor) but the food is clearly a joke compared to the price.. pay 9.50 euro for a half tomate (green and hard) with atun.. or 7 euro for bread with Aguacate..is too much.. The waiter was nice..... More

We ended up here are we were walking around the neighborhood on our last day in town. It was nice out and they had seats open outside so we stopped for lunch. I will say that within 30 minutes of us arriving the entire place was packed for lunch. So we got lucky I guess. The waitress wasn't super friendly... More

Went after reading the reviews in TA. It's clearly changed since the most recent review. On arriving and requesting a table for two, "Have you booked?" "No" "Oh....huff...wait here..." Five mins later, taken to an upper level which had 8 to 10 vacant tables. The menu arrived. "Do you have a menu with things other than tapes?" (As you have... More

This restaurant is not so big. But very cosy and with a lot a atomsphere. They are quite busy, so in the weekends book a table. It was the best tapas we tried in Barcelona and we tried our share :-). Tasteful, solid and most of all a good varition.

We arrived into Barcelona late and it was about 10PM when we finally made it out of our hotel to find a place to eat. It was both our first time in Barcelona and we had no bearings as to where we were. We wandered from L'exiample into El Born and had never been to a tapas place - we... More

I read mostly positive reviews about the place and therefore gave it a shot last week but have to say I was rather disappointed. You pay quite a lot considering what you get for your money. Steak was alright but mini burger was tasteless. Service wasn't particularly accommodating either. Quite the opposite in all fairness. Maybe we were just unlucky... More

This restaurant must be visited! The restaurant is nice and cozy furnishings, the waiters are friendly and are knowledgeable about the food, so that they can guide you. We were recommended only to order 5-6 dishes for 2 people and it was the perfect amount. We ordered hotwings, goat cheese, the cheese plait, tuna, croquettes, pepper and everything was absolutely...

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.
