Little hidden gem on Carrer de Sant Pau - really tiny place, but every time went back past it was packed the the rafters. Managed to initially slip in during a quiet period, which just meant we got to enjoy the ambience - quick service,...authentic tastes and definitely goes down well with a bottle of Pacifico.More

Food and staff is amazing, great experience! We had nachos with guacamole, and tacos with pork (meat was really good and tender). This is the place where you will come back again, for sure!

Was here on a dinner, it was amazing! We ordered margaritas and nachos and it was perfect, the nachos is great to share and they had the best margaritas we have ever tasted. It is definitely worth a visit if you are in Barcelona. BRING...CASH, they do only take cash!!More

You can only pay in cash. Food selection is limited and very sub par. Drinks are tolerable, but you're better off ordering water.

I entered small and noisy restaurant but there was nice atmosphere with friendly staff. Soft tacos were tasty and so was mojito. Quite fast service near the closing time. Friendly staff.

The hostess was excellent in managing the people waiting and did it with a smile, the staff here are great and worked so hard making delicious food as well as having to wear those pesky masks! The food is excellent, big portions, great atmosphere and...the staff really know how to deliver on everything, if you go no where while in the city, just go here, get a full belly and leave with a smile.More

A quite hidden gem in El Raval. Went for their guacamole during lunch time and was not disappointed: fresh and ripe avocados, cilantro, chopped onions and tomatoes served very well together, along with their homemade tortilla chips. Would also recommend trying their "limonada" with sparkling...water (very refreshing and decent portion size). Be aware that they do not take cards (only cash) and that the location is very small on the inside.More

Tiny and packed, waited about 2 hours (each time we visited we were told, maybe another half hour) but we sort of expected that. Food to die for.

The best Mexican food I have ever eaten!!! We got to sit at the bar and watch them make all the drinks and food! We had just classic margaritas and then guacamole and tacos and enchiladas! So amazing! Make sure you bring cash as they...don’t take card, but this has been the best meal I have had in Barcelona!More

It's kind of odd that the best meal we had in Barcelona was Mexican food, but it was! It's not just that the food was really great (we had the Nachos and the Carnitas tacos), but the service was super friendly as well! We were...even offered some tequila to sample on the house, but we had to decline as we had a super early flight to catch. Wish we would have found this place earlier in our trip. Just a fantastic experience all around!More

gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an
excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic

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
