“Excellent place for Tapas”
Reviewed July 21, 2014 via mobile

Barcelona travellers.. You should definitely goes to this place.. They serve Tapas here. So if you're traveling to Barcelona or perhaps live in Barcelona, you really have to visit this place.

The place is quite hip and trendy with friendly service. Since this place is hip and trendy you have to wait for a while to be seated. Perhaps reservation would a better option. But definitely you should try this place.

“The place to go for tapas!”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

This restaurant is open 0900 to 0200 everyday. I went on a Sunday evening at 7pm. We were told there was a 20 minute wait for a table for 2, but we only ended up waiting 10 minutes. The food was delicious and had many Catalonian specialities on the menu. I would recommend the crunchy Camembert and mini hotdogs. Also if your timing is right and you find seats at the bar, you don't need to wait for a table and you can still enjoy the full tapas menu.

“Don't be rushed you've waited long enough”
Reviewed July 20, 2014 via mobile

It was a battle of wills but we won!! We waited an hour and five minutes to get a table for 2. We were told we'd have to wait 20 mins so relaxed with a drink. An hour later we were getting frustrated as it seemed the queuing system was a bit chaotic. Food was delicious but they really tried to rush us out the door. Kept offering us desert. We stood our ground though and eventually they left us alone. Have the mini burgers and the prawns on a skewer.

“Trendy spot with tasty tapas - service was ok”
Reviewed July 20, 2014 via mobile

My girlfriend and I went based on a recommendation. It's a nice spot with cool decor, tasty food and lots of selection. Only complaint was that the service was mediocre - waiter did not seem interested in being there in the slightest, we ordered dishes that never showed up (though they weren't on the bill either). Go for the food not the service.

“Great tapas ,nice atmosphere”
Reviewed July 20, 2014 via mobile

We were recommended the place by our hotel concierge and decided to try it after some shopping on passeige de gracias.
We arrived there at 6.30 pm and luckily had to wait only to 10 mts before getting the coveted table outside(they don't take reservations).because 7.00pm onwards the place was super crowded,frequented by locals and tourists alike.and I can see why.
It probably had one the best tapas in barcelona.the seafood tapas are to die for.we tried the squid and cuttlefish.yum!interesting grilled pepito peppers-not hot but flavorful and ofcourse the patatas brava.we were seated on stable next to a sweet,old couple ,who made us try their plate of local dish of small dried fish that was served fried.delish.would have never ordered it ,just by reading the menu.
The place is very popular and sometimes the service can be a bit slow..we didn't mind it.we were happy lapping up the good food,friendly atmosphere over our pitcher of sangria.
Highly recommend it!
