I was recommended this place by a local and it did not disappoint. As like most tapas bars it’s very narrow, (the back is a little bigger for larger parties) so we chose to sit at the two seater window setting outside, really quaint and...More

I went with a friend of mine to just have a beer and we ended up having lunch, coffee and drinks. The tapas are delicious and the atmosphere and waiters are very cool. If you are around the Born neighborhood, it is 100% worth it.

My wife and I went to this place after using a googled list of recommended places for tapas/food in Barcelona, and it was so good that we went back the following day. Busy when we first arrived, but we sat at the bar and this...More

Some of the dishes were nice, some were average, but overall I don’t feel that I received value for money. The experience was slightly disappointing. I’m particularly aggrieved over the €11 Catalan sausage - that price for a plate of potatoes and the smallest sprinkling...More

A cosy, small, fun and atmospheric spot in a great location. Tapas was generally great in particular the mackerel and the amazing The Chocolate dessert. Staff fun, energetic and full of good advice.

El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
places that live and breathe such exciting energy
regardless of the time of day. This neighborhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants

Hi, as they also offer seadfood I'm sure they can prepare glutenfree tapas. I would actually give them a call before you go there. Enjoy!

I'd recommend it especially if you want a table or decent bar seats. We turned up without but we're very early so managed to find 2 unreserved bar stools.
