It's a self serve style tapas place in an open plaza, filled with locals and very warm, young servers. We went two days in a row since we loved the Champanillo cava they serve (and the price, 3.5 euros for a bottle) and on the second day we had some fries which were amazing and cut in a curved fashion...

It is kind of self service tapas bar. So you need to pop-in, place your order at the bar, have a seat and wait for all things to be brought to your table. It is always crowded. Food is good quality and drinks are quite ok. Nothing fancy though, it's good to spend a long evening with friends, not suitable... More

This is a busy bar that offers a range of tapas and other snacks. It is behind the Hotel Fergus Espanya and faces a public square that has a children's play area. We found Champanillo on our second day and visited, at some point, very day after I though it was the best place in Calella for a snack and... More

My family and I found this place 1 lunchtime, stopped for a drink and ordered some food. The tapas were amazing. We visited nearly everyday from there on. Everything we tried was good. I would strongly recommend great value for money.

Ate here about 4 lunchtimes whilst staying in Calella. The tapas are lovely and most under 2 euros. The variety of local Spanish sausage rolls for 1.80 euros are lovely. Beer 2 euros, glass of cava 1.20 euros or a bottle for 3.50 euros. Busy all the time, mostly local residents.

We were lucky to find this little tapas bar back in 2001, when we first visited Calella. We have been on vacation there for 5 times now and the Champanillo-bar has become our most favorite place. As other reviewers already told, this is a bar for locals, what shows in the atmosphere of the place. A visiting tourist just melts... More

Fantastic little tapas bar not far from the beach. Had a jug of Sangria and 3 tapas for 10€, this little bar is a gem and could have drank and ate there every day.

We found this by chance walking through the back street of Callela, customers are mostly the locals and the lucky tourists who stumble across it. The food is true Tapas, very reasonable in cost and very tasty and satisfying. The wines are cheap and of good quality. If you are in Calella then don't miss it, we can't wait to... More
