Found this in an article about what to eat while in Barcelona and I’m glad we did. We went around 2 pm and did not have to wait. They do have an English menu QR code but it can still be a bit confusing and...intimidating to order. I felt like I needed to find the dishes on the original menu to make sure I was getting what I wanted as it didn’t translate exactly. We got four tapas and two glasses of the Rose Can Paxiano and it was less than $20. The fried sausages, croquettes and rose (cava) were our favorites but I would’ve love to have tried even more dishes. We returned the next day to get more cava and buy a bottle to take home. You do have to stand up while eating but that’s ok- so cheap and good.More

Must visit when in Barcelona. Some of the best cava we’ve had, and super cheap. The food is also simple but hits the spot, although very much not ideal for a veggie. Can get quite busy and is standing only, but we love it and...always make sure to visit when in Barcelona !More

We came across a queue of people waiting for this place to open so we waited too and went in. Simple plates of delicious meats and cava by the bottle or glass is what awaited inside. Affordable and quick service. Great if you’re on a...budget.More

Cava’s are cheap and perfect and butifarra was also good. But there is no seat in the place. If u are tried of discovering Barcelona by walking dont go in there. It is so crowded. There is always a line. And if u dont know...spanish, really hard to give some order bcs they speak only Spanish.More

This is a no frills tapas bar specialising in Cava and great rustic tapas, and located in a quiet street close to Port Vell. We visited twice and it was very busy both times but I think that it probably is most days. Inside you...are shown to a place where you can stand to eat and drink. Great Cava and good choice of tapas cooked to order, and very cheap! We loved the Cava, the food and the atmosphere, and were so glad we went!More

Stumbled on this tapas cava bar and the que to get in was a good sign. Don’t be put off it moves fast and once inside you need to adjust to the vibe and frenetic atmosphere. Shown to our standing area/bar and took the plunge...to approach the service bar. Bottle of cava, two glasses and please give me a selection of favourites please. Didn’t disappoint. Cheap as chips! Well worth a visitingMore

Great decor (old at first glance but everything works together), excellent, friendly atmosphere. Very good tapas and sparkling wine. Excellent place to stop and try Spanish cuisine. Low prices.

Have to admit that it was a bit of an intimidating scene at first. The place was packed with food and Cava moving in every direction. My advice would be to step up to the bar, order a bottle and ask for a recommendation on...something to eat - you will not be disappointed. This place is great.More

Probably the best tapas bar in Barcelona personally!!! Amazing decoration and amazing food. I definitely recommend the jamón and the croquettes!!! Such a good wine in very low prices!!! You should go early because later there is a huge line, although because it’s a tapas...bar everyone eats very fast and you probably won’t wait for long !!! If I visit Barcelona again I will visit it again for sure !!!More

Awesome food, but it’s standing room only. Husband and I went with our baby and it was a little tight but we made it work. Would definitely reccomend for a quick authentic lunch and don’t forget the cava!

What a place, vibrant and busy little tapas bar with the best and cheapest bottle of Cava in Barcelona. Just tell them you want a little of everything and I promise you won't leave hungry. You might hesitate at first because it's small and crowded...but do enter. It's not a place to sit down and enjoy a meal. You stand where there is room and you eat, drink and socialising.More
