This place across the Hilton hotel is fabuloso, had been here before 14 years ago and still has the same great food and atmosphere tailor made for the savi Barcelona locals. If you like the Spanish tapas thing seat the BARRA/BAR but when busy lunch 12-4 and dinner 9-1 will have to wait up to 1/2 hour wait with a... More

Never a disappointment! Though it lost its original charm through renovation the food still is one of the best tapas in town! Try The brochetas de Langustino, el montadito de ternera, a montadito de jabugo and calamarcitos a la plancha and you will know what I mean. TIP: try to get a place at the bar! The fight is worth...

I'm a little ashamed to admit it because Barcelona has such amazing restaurants and I hate going back to the same place when traveling when there are so many places to try but my husband and I were staying down the street from here and we ended up coming here 3x. This place is open late so we found an... More

Arrived to Barcelona after midnight and wanted to connect to the city... Arrived to the Cerveceria around 00:30 and the place was still busy, but I didn't need to wait and had a place on the bar. Had very good Navajas (Razor Clams) and some Pimento de Padrón with Sardinas Fritos and caña. Splendid beginning for my BCN tour

The food was amazing, the service great, and the atmosphere very relaxing...my only advice is to book a table beforehand or head there at slow hours to find a table fast otherwise you'll be stuck in a long waiting line but definitley worth the wait

Recommended by hotel reception staff and it didn't disappoint. It appears to be constantly busy and we were told a 40 minute wait for a table however there are stools around the 2 bar areas. One of the servers behind the bar invited us to sit on 2 recently vacated stools. This meant no wait for a table and we... More

This tapas bar is excellent Value for money and the food is outstanding. I had to wait about 15 mins for a table but it was worth every cent. Delicious food, reasonably priced (wine too) and yummy desserts. Do not miss this place for tapas in Barcelona. Highly recommended

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.
