This is the perfect place for a good beer with few but well and freshly prepared meat tapas. The service is warm, friendly and fast although it is very popular during lunch time. Recommended for a light lunch or a (not so light) dinner

Amazing beer, tapas and staff. Spicy tuna salad is to die. The decor is old fashioned stylish and looks very luxurious. It’s like walking into your best friends house. The staff treat you amazing and are funny.

It is about time to give one of my favourite places in Barcelona the review they truly deserve: Great little place with honest food and home-brew beers. We have been there on various occasions over the years and never been let down. The waiters are...a class of their own and always in a good mood, visibly enjoying their work. The food is plain and simple, but excellent. My favourites are the spicy tuna salad and the sirloin with foie gras and caramelized onion, which will be artfully prepared at your sight. Normally the place is packed, but now it is rather sad to see it halt empty with all those senseless COVID-regulation changing from day to day. Good luck, I wish you will survive!More

Came with my BF for a glass of beer and tapas, had manchego cheese with bread. The menu has many options to choose from. believe me, we eat a lot and this was enough for the both of us. I highly recommend this place. Can’t...talk about the food though... didn’t order any strong dish here.More

We loved the food and the beer, we loved the personality of owner/waiter and we loved the vibes of this place: all genuine and refreshing! We ate great local food and we paid almost half of what we paid elsewhere.

Are you a TOURIST? And your Spanish is not fluent? If so, do not do our mistake. One of the rudest waiters I have ever seen! Instead of being patient, he was mimicking every word we said! He acted as if we were previlaged to...be served! The tapas was good though.More

Another recommendation of our local friend. She insisted we take solomillo (sirloin). It arrived with foie gras and fried onions!!! Omg! So mouthwatering!!! A must try if you are there!!! Russian salad had lots of tuna and was amazing. We also loved padrón peppers, and...beer we took was good. The atmosphere is super busy and it’s even hard to move. But order your stuff and see if someone is leaving soon. That’s how we got our table. It’s extremely popular among locals and you understand why!More

Loved this off the beaten track, locals hangout that is welcoming to visitors as well!! We went with friends late in the afternoon so while crowded, we were able to secure seats at the bar where you can witness all the action. Had the favorites...which included this incredibly light, but delicious tuna salad served with buttered, fried toast points, the obligatory sirloi with foie gras prepared right in front of you, shishito peppers, and the draft house flautas. Right near the beach, this is a must...More

Please go. It is a challenge to sneak in, but once you are in, it is worthwhile. Very good craft beers, delicious food. I think it is a bit pricey, but give it a try, you won’t regret.

Originally a fisherman’s quarter, this quaint area
can’t escape its small village feel: laundry hanging
over the narrow streets, old ladies clamoring at each
other from their balconies and elder gentlemen playing
games on short wooden benches gossiping the day away,
Barceloneta could double as a film set. Artists line
the boardwalk displaying their magnificently detailed
sand structures making this the most visited beach in
