Not a restaurant but more a cafe style place to chill out and enjoy some nice simple food and drinks. Great selection of excellent Empanadas (we sampled about 6 and will continue ticking them of next time), also had a potato dish with chese and bacon (or similiar) this was ok but could have done with a little more seasoning or herbs. The service by all staff was great and the place had a really nice, friendly atmosphere. Will certainly be back and recommend to others! Gracias!

We saw this restaurant was ranked number 1 of thousands of restaurants in Barcelona on Tripadvisor and hence we HAD to go eat here :-). We went here for a quick bite to eat for lunch. It's a small place, with a nicely decorated interior and friendly service. However, we would certainly not say this place is the best restaurant in Barcelona. For us, it is just like the average restaurant you find on every block. Maybe we didn't order the right tapas, but we didn't think the food was very special. We also didn't get the right food we ordered, but that can happen...

Sorry have not filled your expectations. We open 3 months ago and for us we didn't open a restaurant. aQistoi is a place to enjoy easy food with good quality: empanadas, sandwiches, potatoes, homemade cakes.... Sorry for the mistake with your food and thanks for your comments they help us to improve.

Thank you Luis for a fun hour and drinks before our reservation for dinner elsewhere. It was a coincidence that we walked down your street on 7th August and stopped for a drink. Your outside tables & chairs had only just arrived and we were pleased to try them out. It was a short while after you had opened your restaurant and you showed us your interior decorations and introduced us to your friends with their shaggy dog. We had a great time. Thank you. Sorry it's taken so long to write our review. We will be back another time for dinner.

We ate at this restaurant tonight - what a great find! We shared a salad (enormous and fresh), potatoes with 4 cheeses, chorizo pastie and spicy meat pastie, a bottle of red and carrot cake and Argentinian banana cake for pudding. The bill came to €35.20. Excellent value for great quality food in a nice atmosphere with very friendly staff. Thank you!
