My mom and I randomly came across this place while walking around Barcelona. The service was great, the food amazing, and the sangria refreshing. Definitely our favourite place that we've found so far in Barcelona. Will be returning again for sure!

Great selection of wines on their main menu and a "Discovery of the Month" add-on. I had delicious anchovies, patatas bravas and marinated tuna chunks with green beans. Location is gorgeous. They have tables outside too.

Worth it every penny! Nice terrace outside and in the back of restaurant in the gothic area. First opinion is a small restaurant inside, but upsters you have more space, even table for 6-7 people. Very cosy, great atmosphere, friendly staff, quick service. The food just amazing! Great various menu, delicious meal. You can feel and taste, they really care... More

We had lunch here. Amazing. Helpful staff. We recommend the salmon tartare, tomato bread and peppers. All washed down with a glass of cava. Not too expensive.

We ate here twice on a recent visit to Barcelona. Once for tapas outside on the patio and again for dinner inside. All of the food was excellent, some highlights were the fried anchovies and mussels.

Tried to have drinks and some tapas when it was not busy. Was greeted by a miserable waiter with terrible attitude. So many other better options in the area. Avoid

The Restaurante Tantarantana is very popular and a reservation may be needed to secure a table, particularly if you want to eat at one of the few tables inside the restaurant. There are also a small number outside the front entrance but the most covers are available at the back of the restaurant in the Placa del Pons i Clerch.... More

We ate tapas on the patio on a very pleasant Barcelona evening. Tapas were above average even in this city with so many choices for great tapas dining. Service was somewhat below average and slow. Wine was good but a bit overpriced (18€). Overall a very pleasant if somewhat pricey dining experience (110€ for 4 persons including wine and dessert).... More

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighborhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighborhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
