Tapas was delicious. Best meal we had so far. The eggplant was my favotite, the wings were good, the mixed veggiie plate with romesco sauce was excellent. Reasonable priced. Not sure why it is not higher up on TA.

We stumbled upon this restuarant as we were trying to decide where to eat. We only order 5 tapas because we planned to try various restaurants throughout the evening. All 5 tapas were terrific! The real standouts were the fried camabert (yes, gluttonous but so worth it), fried eggplant was divine and the chicken wings with honey and soy literally fell off the bone. This place is worth checking out as is the neighborhood it is in.

Bumped into this little gem on our way to Las Ramblas. Both my wife and I are big foodies and we have to say this place has impressed us the most so far in our Barcelona trip, for the food and service. It should be ranked in the top 10 tapas bars on trip advisor. Everything we ordered, from the fois gras to the truffle risotto and Angus beef burger was amazing. Kudos to their chef for prepping some great tapas. Make sure to finish off your meal with some off their regular coffee/iced coffee/espresso.

Went here for lunch on our very first full day in Barcelona. We sat outside and the weather was great. The service is a bit slow but once we got seated, the food was excellent and the staff was super helpful. Our waiter spoke a bit of English and he was accommodating as to where we should go after our lunch. The restaurant is small and tight but they have tons of out door seating and it's nice on a sunny day. This cute stray dog named Nikko kept coming by to greet us.

Dinner on a Friday night inside cozy, lovely restaurant (upstairs area not as quaint). Need to call ahead to reserve outside on the terrace. Delicious appetizers (tiny fried fish, steak tartare) and mains (tuna, risotto, hamburger, fried egg with jamon on potatoes). Excellent vino tinto recommended by our waiter. Overall one of my favorite meals in 5 days in Barcelona.
