Delicious Tapas

This was our first experience with a real tapas bar. There were so many varieties to choose from. I loved the way they counted the sticks to come up with your bill. We had 13 and they were all delicious. The beer was very good. It was a little hard to get the waiter's attention because they... read more

Although a bit expensive (probably due to its amazing location), this typical pincho's bar offers the option to replace the normal bread with gluten free bread. Beer, pinchos (a slice of bread with a saviury topping) and friends. Agood way to start your night!

Close to our hotel. We have eaten here before in the evening on a previous visit. This time we went for lunch before joining our cruise; we were there before the lunch crowd and again enjoyed the variety of tapas offered at a reasonable price. Staff were friendly and didn't rush us. As there are many tapas restaurants in Barcelona... More

Big selection of tapas all served on bread - good quality & quite tasty. Pick what you want and save the sticks. Reasonably priced given the location by the cathedral and friendly enough service. Would use again.

I tried quite many from the tapas they offer but to be honest they are not impressive. The highlight was the small cheesecake.It was really good.

Lovely small tapas bar just opposite to Barcelona Catedral. You can sit on the terrace, enjoy the view, listen of some good local musician and try different tapas. I am always surprised how many varieties they can produce. Its always a harmony of tastes.
