This place has it all, cheap beer, nice staff, strong sangria, and surprisingly good food! You can buy 5 liters of beer for 25 euro, and it comes in a big jug with a tap. We split one with some other Americans that we managed to find. We visited the bar 3 times on our trip to Barcelona. The first... More

Ran into this bar/restaurant by accident and was impressed by the quality of tapas, sangrias, price and the locals that dominated the crowd surrounding us. If your looking to experience a genuine bar in Barcelona with great food and prices this is the place.

For me is it diffuse what this place is, it's kind of a bar/restaurant/hang out-place. Really nice for students with a great atmosphere. Don't forget to bring cash!

This is more about the atmosphere than about the food or anything else. Go there if you want to have a good time with your friends, drinking some beer and playing drinking-games. There's food, though, I recommend the cheese dish.

Cheap good quality drink especially the yummy three euro pints of sangria. The atmosphere was cool with lots of big groups and a good mix of locals and tourists, mainly 20-25 year old back packer types. Bar staff were friendly and spoke decent english and didn't seem to mind our groups lack of spainish unlike in other bars. The building... More

It's a rustic bar/pub that also serves tapas. Beer is very good an cheap. The atmosphere is really good. We've been in Barcelona 1 week and came here multiple times. A must stop.

First of all, if you're going with a group of friends, it's a no brainer to get the large 5 liter beer or sangria stand. It's a great value when you split it between people. This place is filled with locals and a nice break from the touristy locations close to Ramblas. We watched a world cup game here, which... More
