“We <3 Gipsy Lou”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

I've been here with a couple of friends and it was awesome. We came back several times. Tapas are great, sandwiches too. Prices are very reasonable. Staff is superfriendly.
Don't let El Raval scare you!

“Gipsy Lou is worth a visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

Situated in the lively Raval district. This small bar boasts some big credentials. The Tapas are excellent well priced and all the food is fresh, you can tell! The cocktails and drinks are also delicious, you know by the amount of time and effort they take to make your Mojito or Pisco sour. Finally the staff are super friendly and the music is eclectic and always on tune. 5stars!

“Best. Bar. in Barcelona.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

Really I just spent a week in this lovely city and we had a blast every time we visited the crazy guys at Gipsy Lou. Live Music, cheap but easily one of the best Tapas in the city, and really funny and outgoing owners. I really Enjoyed every Minute and every conversation I had in there. It's definitely a bar that I'll go back as soon as I'm in Spain again. Abrazzos amigos!!!

“Insiders' tip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

I haven't experienced Barcelona as a city of culinary art but the Gipsy Lou is definitly an exeption to the rule. The quality of the tapas was simply incredible and so was the service. Very nice guys serve amazing food in a very cozy and inviting ambiance. And hey, did I mention that the prices are more than accurate? No wonder that locals and well-informed tourists likewise enjoy settling at the Gipsy Lou for drinks and snacks. Definitly a place to visit!

Very cozy, super friendly staff, small menu but excellent quality tapas. Perfect for a catch-up with friend and pre-clubbing.
