Delicious food, interesting wines

Small and trendy wine and tapas bar in Barcelona. Very unassuming but worth a visit. Tapas and small dishes on offer presented in a new and deconstructed way. All dishes were delicious. No misses! I loved the mini burgers with quail eggs and the macaroni dish with a local sauce. The ham is not to... read more

It's a new experience! "Platillos" between tapas and dish. Very original with chicken pequin, steak tartare like a principal dishes. If you want enjoy a good time eating is a good recommendation.

Went on a recommendation that this was one of the best wine bars in the city. Greatly disappointing. The wine menu had a very limited selection and not even great wines at that. The bartender did not know much about the wines and when I asked for a taste she poured a whole glass. It was not very good and... More

Cute, highly recommended cava bar. It was a surprise to have only one cava by the glass. The tapas were delicious. The tortilla fantastic with truffle, the cod delightful. Some of the best in Bcn.

Loved the prix fixe menu, especially the Russian salad. Casual, comfortable room with great food and a hip vibe. Not a tourist spot.

Came here at 9:30pm on a Wednesday night so it wasn't too busy - the atmosphere was pleasant but chill, and it was nice to not have to yell to hear each other. Between the two of us we ended up ordering 6 tapas dishes (we got the crunchy cod twice because we just liked it so much!) and 2... More

A most unusual wine bar and tapas restaurants. Food was very good. They even have street food as well as tacos. Unusual decor. Small but friendly.

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
