For many years, we walked past the doors until we met up with some friends who live in the close vicinity of El Bario. Since then we have had many superb dinners there. The tapas are just great, the bread with aioli is addictive and the wine is lovely.
In the summer you can sit outside on the barge on the water and in the winter it is cosy to sit inside.

This is a spanish tapas bar and realy very special.
The food is delicious. The atmosphere is great and it's Always a pleasure to eat here.

In the summer you can eat outside on a boat in front of the restaurant.

You can find El Barria near the centre of the town, it's not a street where you would expect a restaurant like this to be. So all tourists: come and visit !!
Make reservations before you go there, so you won't be disappointed!

As we were a party of seven, including one vegetarian, we chose to order variety menus to make the ordering and delivery easier. The tapas were average and the variety chosen by the kitchen was disappointing. We did not feel that the quantity or quality of the food or drink (purple sparkling Sangria?!) was worth the price of 15 eur pp. The waitstaff had their hands full with a few large parties and were not at all attentive. We will not return to El Barrio.

We ate in this restaurant for the 2nd time, the menu has not changed that much the tapas have. So beside the very good octopus and albondigas the rest of the tapas were a bit poor. Avoid the bario salad and the tortilla.

A typical Spanish bodega-style restaurant serving a wide variety of delicious tapas as well as Spanish meals. Bustling atmosphere. Always busy so try to book a table in advance - it's well worth it!
