“I didnt try the food here but the live flamenco was excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2013

On a Thursday evening around 9.30 they have live flamenco- I had been told it was good so decided to check it out- I stayed for a few beers (2.50euros each) and was treated to an excellent cantaor accompanied by a brilliant guitarist. If you are a tourist looking for a show, this is not the place to go, but if you are interested in real flamenco, with proper Duende I can't recommend it enough! I did get lost on the way as it is slightly hard to find, but when I am next in Barcelona over a Thursday I will be sure to return.

“Excelente relacion calidad/ precio”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013

It is more a bar than a restaurant. Before the food was good. But now the food is very good.
On Thursdays they have little flamenco concerts!!!
They really take care of quality. For instance they have a spicy herbal liqueur from Germany.
In my opinion more than worse to give it a try.

“Great Bar with tapas... super authentic & not just there to nail tourists like so much in central Barcelona these days.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

It's right in central Barcelona (close to Mercat de Sta Caterina) but well off the tourist track . It's not really a restaurant , but more of a Bar that serves some tapas (very good & reasonably priced too - really good hummus , Jamon, tortilla etc) . On Thursdays at about 21.00 there is live flamenco - which has nothing to do with the tourist nonsense served up on Las Ramblas, but involves real musicians doing their thing whether you're there or not. They also serve fantastic and reasonably priced cocktails : try getting one of those down by the port! Cosy low-lit interior , cool but friendly people & loads of atmosphere .The owner Patrick (he's Andalucian despite the Irish name!) is extremely warm & friendly. A real antidote to false Irish pubs & tacky Sangria & chain tapas bars that fill so much of central Barcelona these days and an experience that shouldn't be missed.
