Great taoas

Lovely little restaurant - sat outside with great views and free music show from buskers - brilliant choice of tapas and extremely reasonable prices - would definitely recommend a visit

My sister raved about this place for 2 years since her first visit so we hunted it down so i could try it. Well worth the visit - it's so different to any other restaurants i've been to! You definitely need to be open and willing to try new things though, we couldn't see labels of what any of the... More

Excellent tapas selection. Just help yourself and they count the sticks at the end. Don't be put off by the grumpy staff just enjoy the fresh and tasty food with a glass of lemon damm.

We had lunch here before we flew back to Asia. It is a self-service restaurant, you go and look a look at pinchos displayed on the bar counter, make your choice by putting the ones you want on your plate. You are charged by the number of skewers in the bamboo container on your table when you finished, 1.7 euro... More

well worth its price (which is a little high but still reasonable), this place is right in the heart of the city, provides amazing food and such a great variety of tapas that it is actually hard to choose from all of the options! A must-go when in Barcelona but you'd better be early cause it's hard to find a... More

Bilbao Berria is one of our favourite eateries in Barcelona. There is a whole variety of Pintxos to taste, all available as a self-service buffet alongside the bar. The system is rather simple: each Pintxo comes skewered on a stick to make it easier to eat, and when you just can't take anymore of those delicious babies, the waiter will... More

This is a fun, tapas only buffet style restaurant. All the tapas are laid out for the customer to see and you pick what you want when you want. The flavors are great, lots of variety throughout the offerings. These were the best croquettes I had while in Spain...YUM. The sangria wasn't my favorite but the value for the amount... More
