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.

Little in way of hospitality. Plonked at table with menus. Ten minutes passed until order placed. Another twenty minutes and drinks arrived. Waiters with no conversation or time for customers. Had to shout to get service. Be aware of poor translation on menu. Scrambled egg is actually a fried egg on top of crisps. Risotto good. Maybe staff rushed off... More

We found this place by browsing Trip Advisor and very glad we did. The food was excellent. In fact we went twice in a week. The service was also great. I highly recommend giving it a try.

We love Barcelona and its charm. Unfortunately this place managed to get nothing of it at all. At 16:20 we dared to approach the restaurant 'just' to have some tapas and drinks. 'We're a full service restaurant is all we hear.", although the place is totally empty. At least there are a lot of other charming restaurants just around the... More

Found this place by chance, how lucky and blessed we felt. Best tapas by far, great service and excellent value. As previous reviews stated: if you want something a little different it's the place to dine. Great value for money. Dreaming to return.... Thank you, Tantarantana
