“Excellent place for tapas in Barcelona”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

It was a very good choice or late lunch in the city. It wasn't very busy ( 4 p.m.), but the food was great.
We sat on the bar and the service was nice. The camembert cheese with raspberry was a must have. Also the pulpitos.

“Gifted creations justify the crowds”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

Awesome. This is the place to see and be seen too. The myriad of tapas makes one wonder if there is an entire think tank team just coming up with hundreds of ideas each day that the chefs get to choose from before finalizing each night's menu.

Out of this world octopus!
Amazing anchovies!
Exciting eggplant!
Perfectly deep fried peppers!
Crazy good clams!

It goes on and on.

Go. Wait in line no matter how long and pay what ever they ask. You may never get another chance.

“Don't miss out on amazing tapas”
Reviewed October 9, 2012 via mobile

After reading all the reviews we decided to try the tapas out here. It is definitely the best tapas we have had!
Unlike most of the reviewers we didn't have to wait to be seated, service was polite and swift and we were very full!
The fried small fish was great, codfish skewers were good but a little translucent for our liking, patatas bravas AMAZING, as were the grilled mushrooms and the veal sirloin.
We hope to be back there very soon.

“Very good, but not really worth the wait, and the noise”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

We had good Tapas here, but honestly, they were not much different to the tapas we had in a couple of other recommended Tapas Restuarants - I do feel the place is overated. Bottom line, although good, it really is not worth the one hour wait (possibly more) and all the noise, confusion and chaos going on around you whilst you are trying to eat (unless you're into that kind of thing of course)
