Awesome paellas, friendly service and food & cocktails for a good (!) price. Nice atmosphere and definitely worth visiting!

We discovered this really sweet little bar after walking out of one of the rip off places on Carrer Ferran, we were so glad we did. There was something about the décor which was a little 1920's and somehow I could see Margaret Rutherford holding a séance in there, but it worked and felt cosy and comfortable.

This is a great place to sit and have a drink (4 Euros for a large beer which seemed cheaper than most of Irish bars nearby) and the tapas was excellent - little fishes for 6 euros was a generous portion of crisp Whitebait.

Q Bar is more a restaurant as much as a bar and so we stayed for a meal For a main course I had a Peruvian dish of Lamb with Yucca, the lamb was excellent, tender and falling of the bone - the Yucca reminded me of Parsnip. There were about six people eating when we were there and everyone seemed to be very happy with their food.

We returned twice more and were struck by the friendliness of the staff and the quality of the food. On one night they had a party of 10 eating and this did seem to put the Kitchen off a little when it took almost an hour for food to arrive, but when it did it was once again excellent.

I would thoroughly recommend this place as a good value for money choice in an area where there are far too many places ready to charge a fortune for rude service and bad food.

One of the best culinary finds in the city. The lamb and ceviche dishes were superb and the service was excellent....always with a smile and ready to provide was ever else you needed.
The look once inside is deceiving so don't let that detract you from enjoying the flavors you will experience. The food and drinks were are excellent value. The chef is from Peru and can he cook! Again ...outstanding!

We discovered this place off La Rambla and what a find it was! Really cosy setting, lovely atmosphere in a busy but not crowded place. The staff were all really friendly and helpful and the service was top notch. The food was beautiful and the patatas bravas were by far the best I have ever tasted! Topped off with a jug of sangria, taste to perfection. The food was that amazing we even decided to sample the desserts. An excellent evening all round and comes highly recommended from me!

We stumbled across this place as we were wandering through the laneways one night. The bartender was really attentive and made the best sangria I've ever had. The tapas were amazing - can highly recommend the green peppers. Nice cosy atmosphere as well. We went back the next night but unfortunately they were closed. Would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Barcelona!
