The first time we went here was a Saturday at about 1:30pm - talk about a mess. We waited about 5 minutes to go in. It was super crowded. We pushed our way to the back and stayed put. Unfortunately, the bar servers mostly serve...More

We last visited 25 years ago & it hasn’t changed! Cheap cava & amazing tapas! Very popular, no signage outside but people queuing outside so easily spotted.

Delicious! Their speciality is Hot Dogs! No place to sit. Very chaotic! Uncomfortable surroundings. Always full of people. Always a long cue (you need to be standing)! Very good pricing! Not expensive at all. Despite this it’s worth it to get a quick bite! Very...More

Stumbled across this place by chance. It was absolutely packed and we wondered what all the fuss was about. Cheap cava and very basic, but tasty tapas. We had 2 glasses of cava, jamon, cheese, olives and gherkins and fried frankfurter picanto. Came in just...More

True to it's rating. We did happen to go around 12:30 so it was much calmer and gave us time to ask a few questions and actually have a place to stand and eat/drink. I would recommend visiting early in the day if it is...More

A great place for tapas and delicious cava! We felt like a local as we stood in a tiny space at the bar with our meat and cheese plates and cava. It's not a fancy sit down - it's noisy, crowded, and the staff is...More

Don't expect a posh experience, rather try to mingle with the local workers who join for quick lunch. Staff are fast, settings authentic. You'll be standing up eating and drinking. They have a rule: You need to eat whilst drinking. Great meat tapas. Will return,...More
