Only went to this place cause we happened to be in the neighborhood. I cannot believe we almost missed this place. It was jammed full of people who obviously knew more than we did. The food was simple, and delicious. My favorite was the smoked salmon montadia with yogurt and honey and some mystery brown sauce. We got a mixed meat platter that had things I could not identify but was so tasty. Go and have a tasty bite!

This place is hard to find and can easily be mistaken for a bottle shop at first glance but gathering the courage to push through the crowd of Spanish folk standing around having a drink to check out what was happening inside this little shop was the best decision we made in Barcelona!

The bar is lined with fresh produce, ready to be compiled in to a true Spanish masterpiece. To order, you would need to yell out at the person behind the bar to be heard- securing a front spot in front of the bar is RARE! There are only a couple of the staff who understand basic English so what you have to do is to tell them your 'main ingredient' - i,e Salmon, Squid, Cured Beef, Foie ... and they will mix and match accordingly with what it goes best with.

Truly Authentic Food and Experience. Our favourite 2 concoctions was the one involving 'Squid' and 'Prawn + Caviar'. The whole bill came up to below 30 Euros for the 2 of us, REALLY CHEAP considering our meal included Foie Gras and a huge array of seafood tapas!
We had to stand through our whole dinner but it was well worth it.

Delicious and authentic tapas. Very small space (no sitting area) so only go if you like it cosy! The great food makes up for it though! Extensive choice of drinks too. Really nice atmosphere.

Crowded in pleasant way. Very friendly and English-speaking staff. Excellent tapas and a large selection of wine and beer. Have patience and there will be room for you as well.

You should be prepared to eat standing on your feet in a little space, but it is worth it. So cozy, so friendly, so unusual it is. You will be treated as a good old friend by proprietor's couple, speaking (by the way) a good English, and offered delicious tapas. Not to be forgotten that along with serving tapas and drinks they have a very impressive range of wines and other drinks to buy, being no less than excellent wine boutique the same time.
