Good selection of Basque style tapas, the servers were friendly. Had a glass of txakoli that was tasty. Not much room or seating but cozy.

Here we go - it's much less touristic but authentic - packed every evening at the small bar to enjoy best Tapas in Barcelona! Who does love to have dinner may book a table at the back side room - and: there they do NOT serve Tapas! If you like Tapas you should find a spot at the bar -... More

Seems now to be part of Sargardi as the pinxos are the same and the plates are too. Bit disappointed as we had nt realised and went out of our way to visit , sagardi near Santa Maria is much better

We had been there last May 2016. The food is so good, we came back several times during our recent trip to Barcelona. They have the best "pinchos" in our opinion (and we have sampled many) and if you choose to have a sit down meal with them, it's guaranteed to be delicious. The staff is friendly and positive, a...

You take your tapas from the bar servery and they all have cocktail sticks in them. When you have had enough to eat the bar man counts up your cocktail sticks and gives you a bill. Not for the unadventurous as we weren't sure half the time what we were eating but good fun. You stand at the servery and... More

This place had really yummy tapas at a really affordable price. It was nice to go in and try a few things and stay to chat with people or leave to try something else. I left feeling satisfied but not so full that I couldn't have dessert.

After a long journey we arrived in our hotel near las Ramblas. On the Tripadvisor app, we found the nearest tapas bar IRATI, hidden in one of the small streets near Las Ramblas. As the space in IRATI is very limited, the bar is full of people, locals and tourists. The pintxos were one of the best we have ever... More

We visited Irati some years ago and made a beeline for it on this trip because we had enjoyed it so much the first time. We were certainly not disappointed as the food and atmosphere were still great. We ate and drank well and were served very well by Alex and Oihana.

Irati is just off the Ramblas and definitely worth a visit. You can enjoy a wide range of Tapas in the busy bar, which you pass through on your way to the restaurant - which busier for dinner than lunch. Last Thursday we had dinner in the restaurant. The decor is plain and un-fussy, but you are there for the... More
