Busy busy place but you are not rushed once you have your table, drinks served very quickly & the Tapas selections we chose (5 dishes) were really tasty! Although in a touristy area we thought we were treated as locals and really enjoyed the hour...More

No menu, $17 for 4 scampi and $12 for beans/baby squid. Tried it based on tripadvisor reviews. Overpriced for food quality. Def expect to wait and hover over departing guests.

El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this
gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an
excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic
spots in the entire city. A sense of humble
authenticity protrudes from the many independent
record stores, second hand shops, and student bars
that seem to light up the streets day and night. The
rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day
