“Casual and excellent...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

I have been coming here for a while when in Barcelona and it is always a pleasure to come back. Really, the wide variety of tapas are just excellent, the house wine good, strong and very affordable and the atmosphere laid back and casual. The staff are friendly in a no-nonsense way and in general the guests are locals with a sprinkle of tourists who have found their way to this quirky tapas restaurant.

“Typical Spanish cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

I have been to the restaurant 3 different times and it never fails to satisfy me. Mostly Spanish people in the evenings, some tourists during the lunch hours. No nonsense kitchen, good honest food, fair prices and quick service. What else can one expect in a typical Spanish restaurant. Do not expect a large tapas menu, the city is full of them. I mean real Spanish cuisine and no paellas either.

“Great food, quick service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2011

With rain pouring down, we walked into Txirimiri for a quick snack until the rain stopped.

We ended up ordering 3 times, tapa after tapa. There was great variety, the taste was good. The Txirimiri Salad was nice and good sized for 2 persons. Add 4 pints or beer to that and we paid 26 euros. Not bad at all!
