Really interesting Catalan food. It took a long time to find fresh food in Barcelona but this did it for us.

This little restaurant is a chic but comfortable place, where you look around at what everyone is eating and think 'wow - that look good!' We ordered the guacamole with anchovies, escalivada with goat cheese, pinto beans with squid and asparagus, and scrambled eggs, which were not actually scrambled but lightly fried and sitting on top of homemade chips.

Having visited fair enough tapas bars and restaurants in Barcelona during my stay i can easily tell that Tantarantana was the most misleading. Nice try imitating gourmet restaurants but it actually achieved it only in a portion basis. No ordinary man can satisfy his hunger when served a 100 gr steak. Sample of food in extremely high prices, ending up... More

This place couldn't be better, great decor, simple and delicious tapas, generous portions, the croquettes were out of this world. Located in el borne area... The Cava was excellent too.

We were told to eat here by a local so ventured here for dinner one night when we visited Barcelona and it ended up being the best meal of our stay in the city... The restaurant is quite small and has a very authentic and trendy feel to it... We ordered the squid, fried honey eggplant, risotto and meatballs... Everything... More

Quality restaurant amidst many average tourist tapas places. Serves unique dishes and local Catalunyan wines. Ironically whilst the outside sitting areas were full, we happily ate inside in air conditioned, quiet comfort, close to the camareros to ask advice and receive preferential service! Try it you will not be disappointed.

We stumbled across this place while wandering through the streets trying to avoid the main tourist areas. The location is beautiful and away from all the hustle and bustle, We sat outside and had some tapas and a few beers, very simple but fantastic flavours I'd recommend the meatballs, and the squid we had was the best we had while...

I became a resident here whilst I was staying close by, I accidentally ate elsewhere, an immediately regretted it. So, I made an executive decision not to stray from this little bit of mouth heaven again whilst in Barcelona! Service great and attentive, but the highlight was the exquisite tapas, I literally felt emotional, especially when served the aubergines in... More

possibly our favorite casual tapas place in the city. very nice servers, we sat outside on a nice breezy summer day. I thought the food was exceptional. everything i ate was fantastic. esp. the salmon tartar with guacamole, tuna with seared leeks and the sautéed mushrooms. it will be hard not to go back this trip.

During our week in Barcelona, every time we walked by this place it was busy and bustling, so we finally decided to eat dinner there. Cozy inside seating was great during unseasonably cool April. With all the outside seating, plus dining room, you would think they had a good-sized kitchen. We have a closet that is bigger. Yet they turned... More
