“Great first start to Barcelona”
Reviewed August 30, 2013 via mobile

Staying at Room Mate Emma and asked the front desk to recommend a place to eat. We assumed like other countries that they were sending us to someone they are friends/related to. Well, regardless if that was the case or not, we didn't mind one bit. We noticed a huge crowd outside and by the bar, but figured we would ask if there were any seats inside for my wife and 2 year old. We were sat immediately. The service over all was excellent as was the delivery of food once ordered. Prices were very reasonable as well. We had different tapas(Spanish omelet, Russian salad, German salad, mini hot dog, mini hamburger, veal, prawn); all tasting great. Afterwards we figured out why the place was so packed to begin with...definitely recommend stopping here.

Reviewed August 30, 2013

We really loved this place! They have really cool tapas and a good selection of beer. Also around the corner from passeig de gracia, a major shopping street. I would definitely go back!!!

“Nice Tapas... a little too touristy.”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

To be fair, barcelona is swarmed with tourists so it can't be helped that you wuold be rubbing shoulders with them everywhere you go. However, if a more local ambiance is what you seek, like we do, I wouldn't come here. On the other hand, the tapas is nice and very affordable. My gf and I just didn't think the atmosphere was very appealing but we were hungry and the place did look inviting. Good cafe con leche! Location is great too!

“The place for tapas!”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

We arrived quite early for lunch (1pm ish) and nearly made a huge mistake by attempting to sit outside and order from the menue. One step inside, to view the mouthwatering selection of freshly-prepared tapas, and I just knew that the best place was to sit at the bar.
The service is efficient but you can order what you want, when you want it and your tab keeps open until you have had enough. We were pleasantly suprised when the bill came - for 2 people it was 15 euro - and that included 4 beers.
It will be on my 'must do' list next time I visit this wonderful city.
