Great spot with both indoor and outdoor seating in a nice little square. The food is good, made there, and the portions are big enough. The staff is friendly and responsive. If you prefer other wine or beer than they have in the menu, you can go across the street to a liquor store, buy your own, and bring it there for them to open it against a corkage fee.

Best affordable tapas in town. The Australian owner has a revolutionary attitude to tapas. Cook when ordered! It works and the food is great. A shame it needs an Australian to show the Spanish how to cook their national food, but there it is!

The place is well located, interior design is great, staff is very welcoming and polite, as well as friendly. They weren't sure of our nationality, so we know they can speak French and English, as well as Spanish of course.

We ordered for two people:

- Patatas Bravas
- Jamon serrano
- Pan con tomate

Everything was good, not expansive, and generous.

Really good place !

Great ambience in this restaurant. There were two guys playing some cool jazz which added to a great relaxing enjoyable eating experience.

Between two people, we chose six tapas plates to share. Perhaps a plate too many! The plates were quite large but lovely and tasty. The restaurant was quite busy but the staff were great, very friendly and helpful. Pricing was very reasonable and worth it.

It was our last meal in Barcelona and it certainly didn't disappoint.
