Whilst it's fairly far from the centre (your best bet is to get a taxi or take the L6 from Plaza Catalunya) this place is well worth the effort. The patatas bravas are quite unlike anything else in the city and are great value at around 3 euros a portion. Most of the staff have been there for years and whilst they don't really speak any English they're very friendly / patient with non Spanish speakers!

This place got recommended by one of my Catalunyan teachers. Visited the place once, has nice service, very direct, what I enjoyed and the best patatas bravas I had so far.

A lot of garlic, which make the patatas bravas, for me, the best!

This is one of the best tapas bar in Barcelona. The 'bravas' are amazing.
Service is not good - but don't let that prevent you from eating those delicious tapas.
There is no English spoken, so if you are not Spanish, go there with someone who is!

Friendly, non sophisticated place and family service, rated as first specialist in Barcelona for the "patatas braves" tapas (hot spicy sauced potatos)

Best bravas of Barcelona? No way , I dont know what is about this dish that some people go crazy for it , This ones in particular are nothing special. In Spain we like to fry potatoes in olive oil ,and if possible in a pan ,instead of a big fryer with some cheap vegetable oil . This place lives of the past and customers go there because they always had But really the food is not taken care off at all.
We had apart from the bravas some fry artichokes in butter , wich they were microwaved and also of tin quality. Service is really bad too.
