What a fantastic place for authentic Mexican street food! The restaurant is very small and cosy and it has a great atmosphere. Best nachos in town . Not possible to book but just leave your name and wait , it is worth it !

This is a small place in a popular neighborhood of Barcelona, El Raval. The bar (restaurant) is just like the area, casual and yet cozy. It has 3 or 4 tables, most likely you'll end up at the bar. They do not take reservation, so...More

Definitely a tiny gem to find and an interesting take on Mexican food with Spanish influence. Maybe it’s just because we’re from Prague, but the guac and the chicken tinga we’re a hit for us

Small cosy place but great mexican food. Menu focuses on classic mexican fare and the spot is popular with both tourists and locals. The Nachos were probably the best I have ever had. Friendly staff as well. Worth the trip. Avoid going at peak times.

We had really good Mexican food here. It was so good and we met some locals who said that this is the best Mexican restaurant in Barcelona. It really is. The nachos were exceptionally good.

Amazing food and cocktails, would definitely recommend. Only issue is that it’s small so you have to be put on a waiting list at the weekends or when there are a lot of people. We waited around an hour on a Friday night, but it’s...More

We took mojito, guacamole with homemade chips and tacos. The fact that the chips are selfmade is cool, really makes the place stay in mind. About tacos: very good, my friend took pork and I had a little taste of it also, it was delicious...More

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
