Some of the best tapas I tasted during my 2 week trip in Barcelona, and I was eating tapas for either lunch or dinner every one of the days I was there.

Choose from a variety of tapas from the counter and you can also order freshly cooked dishes from the ala carte menu. We had a dish recommended by the waitress - made from fried potato chips covered with eggs and sauce? Unique and delicious. Gets crowded.

After eating out every day for one week this was far the best tapas restaurant. So much to choose from and soooo delicious. Gets very busy especially Friday and Saturday evenings.

Yes the service is bad, they don't care about you. Yes it seems you need to wait for ages ...not completely right though. I go to barcelona several times a year and always end up there, because the ratio price/quality of tapas is one of the best in Barca. Simple traditional recipes that never changed over the years, that feels... More

A great sea food experience! Must visit in Barcelona! This is my favorite sea food place in Barcelona as it offers a great variety of fresh sea food choices all prepared on the spot. Place is almost always crowded so reserving a table is always a good idea.

Visited for lunch. The restaurant is huge, looks amazing and the staff were friendly and helpful. Ordered a variety of tapas and although the food was OK it didn't blow me away and I was expecting more.

We spent an evening with friends. Waited 30 min in line but was worth it. Everyone were friendly, food arrived quickly but the most important, food was sooooo good. Many small tapas, sea food, meat and more. Great Sangaria and desert. Don't skip the beef! Great experience, great value for their money.

We are visiting this place allready 17 years. The first time we went there we were sitting at the counter. and suddenly they replaced all tapas platters that were on display in the counter. And there we knew: here they go for the best and freshest food possible.

Worth the wait for the authentic dishes and lovely sangria. Great atmosphere whether sharing with friends or popping in for a bite on your own away from the hustle and bustle of the shops!

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
