“Tapas to die for”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

These are some of the best and least expensive tapas in Barcelona. The place is packed from 14:00 on and the food is fabulous. We have dined here three times since our arrival two weeks ago. No other tapas place has even come close in quality. The place is filled with locals. We choose the tapas over the dining room. For less than fifteen euros you can enjoy your fill and depending upon what you order to drink, we prefer agua con gas, you can still get away with a nice assortment of tapas at a reasonable price.

“Left a lot to be desired”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013 via mobile

We were very excited for dinner after receiving a sterling recommendation from family. However, upon entering the crowded restaurant we quickly soured on our decision. The wait was not the issue, rather the general indifference if not downright hostily displayed by the staff to the restaurant's patrons was grating. Talk about a turnoff. At least they were sociedad fans and not merengues.

“a classic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Spectacular place. Simple, straightforward, but the quality is first rate. I tried both a regular table and the bar, and I think the bar 'sets the bar' for any competition. The line gets formed around 8PM is worth the wait.

“Recommended by a local to me, and I would also recommend it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

This restaurant is a family run, local, casual restaurant serving Basque Cuisine. I was invited to this restaurant by a local friend and would highly recommend it in return. The food was tasty and served quickly. I would recommend the clams and fish dishes (I personally don't eat meat and was pleased to find plenty of fish but apparently their meat is excellent too). The bar-tapas area was packed which is always a good sign and the restaurant has a 'second' room next to the main entrance room after a recent expansion as it is so popular - so I understood. If in Barcelona and looking for a local, friendly, good place with casual atmosphere, then I would definitely recommend going here.

“looked good and popular”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

This was directly across from our hotel and was well rated also in Lonely Planet. NOTE: we did not eat here, but we walked in and observed its popularity. Large room in back, so bigger than you first think. Nice looking tapas laid out on bar. It was busy, and loud, and all were speaking Spanish (which we only knew poquito and did not have a mastery of), so we left. Seems definitely worth trying.
