“It is a MUST in Barcelona!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

If you are in Barcelona and do not stop by here, you sure will miss out. Before I think 7 pm you can buy a bottle of Cava for 5 euros plus one Tapa per bottle. What a perfect way to day drink and enjoy your day. We had 3 bottles of cava plus 4 sandwhiches of chorizo and 2 other Tapas and the bill was 26 Euros. You can not beat that anywhere in Spain or any other place I can think of. After that we went for a walk to Barceloneta Beach and continue the day drinking at one of the bars by the beach. Yes it is crowded and yes you eat and drink standing up but it is part of the experience and if you are picky in that way than do not make it anymore crowded than it is and go somewhere fancier.

“One of the best in Barcelona”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

This bar has a great atmosphere and the best concept in Barcelona, cheap tapas and cava. The montaditos and tapas are the best you'll have!

This is my first stop whenever I go back to Barcelona. Not always easy to find and not always open, but its definitely worth the visit.

“so colorful, lively - real experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

We went here several times whilst our trip to Barcelona. You can really feel Spain there :)

1) the food was really good - yes they are only sandwiches and tapas, but where else can you eat an excellent foie-gras with roquefort sandwich cheese with only 3 EUR? Further more, the cave there was the best.
2) the atmosphere is quite funny - you have to get in, eat, drink and get out, as there were no tables and it was quite full. I know it doesn't sound too good but nobody mind after they drank a glass of cava and ate a sandwich

It's the type of bar where you just want more :)

“Loud and Fun.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

A group of us went there after someone had recommended this place whist we were in Barcelona. It's fun, the food is nice and simple and it's very cheap. Definitely paying another visit when I am in Barcelona next.

“The real Spanish taste”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013 via mobile

You simply can't visit Barcelona without going to La Xampanyeria.
If you want to immerse yourself into the real Spanish life you have to go there. You'll find the atmosphere you imagine when you think about the Spanish way of eating and drinking: very cheap cava and a delicious selection of cheese, jamon and tapas.
I absolutely recommend this place.
