We are staying at Hotel Colon and this place is right across the plaza. The place was crowded, always a good sign. The tapas were beautifully displayed and tasty. The paella wasn't quite what I expected but full of calamari and saffron was evident. The house wine was only 3 euros per glass and good. Would consider this place if... More

Fantastic selection of pinxos and tapas, just looking at all the varieties makes your mouth water ! Very reasonably priced and good deals. Excellent and yummy - spoiled for choice ! This is a 'must visit' bar, sit outside or inside, plenty of tables. Will definitely visit the one in London - well recommended.

Stopped here for lunch while walking around the area. Nice place with a large variety of hot and cold pintxos. Very professional service by our waiter! Several different beers on tap. Would definitely return.

Ate at the restaurant in the basement where the lunch special was served - one plate of paella + 3 tapas for EUR 11. Loved the paella and a wide array of delicious tapas. Great service too.

If you want good tapas, you've gotta come here. You pay just $1.75 for each tapas you chose. They have everything from eel to chicken wings as well as deserts. It's a serve yourself establishment, so you get to see (and most times try to figure out) what you're choosing. I enjoyed the white anchovies stack (or was it herring?... More

It was one of the best bread-tapas I've had in Barcelona with many options to choose from. And even though I was there late at night, it was packed with people enjoying their food.

So very convenient with a steadily replenished pinxos buffet. Get a table and just grab and go. Good stuff and plenty of it. And with a gimmicky stick in the bread too.

The Paella? Oh ya...come to Momma! Delish!! And the pinxtos were great too. We ate inside, outside on patio looking at the square and the cathedral AND, we ate in the basement dining room--gorgeous. We absolutely loved this restaurant. And the vino? $2+ a glass of delicious Rioja...yummy!

We visited this tapas bar three times because it had such good choices of tapas and so well priced. The staff were very friendly and helpful. It is advisable to book as it is very popular.
