Of all the places I ate during my recent stay this was my favourite. It's tricky to find so if you're planning to go there my suggestion would be note the address and mark it on a map before you go, this little bit of effort will be rewarded with a wonderful evening of fine tapas, great drinks, excellent service...

The atmosphere in this tapas restaurant was perfect. It felt very cozy and romantic and authentic. It wasn't the most spacious, but this added to the feel of the place. The food was outstanding. The complimentary bread and potato fingers bits were delicious, the nachos were superb, the patat bravas were the best we had (especially the spicy one), the... More

I quess I'm not the only one, who's trying to find out which place is "local", but of course good for the tourists as well. Good drinks, prices and atmosphere! I've got every time tapas next to my drink order with different tastes. I would definitely recommend it for everybody! Thanks for the experience I will be back soon!

Stumbled upon this gem of a place in the Barri Gothic area of Barcelona. The food is superb, freshly made tapas, so they are made to order. Worth waiting for! Lovely, tiny buzzy place. They open very late, but it's all a bit of a blur. Go!

Purely by accident we found this spot last year in November - we went back two nights in a row! Such friendly staff, amazing atmosphere, great suggestions, insane tapas. Couldn't recommend it enough, will be back when we are next in Barcelona! LOVE LOVE LOVE, Want to eat everything off the menu.

We went out of our way to find this restaurant after reading the good reviews, but were actually very disappointed. It was very dark inside, rather cramped and with uncomfortable seating. The tapas were really quite ordinary and not especially tasty - too over salty in fact. The sangria was also tasteless - with a rather unusual musty flavour which... More

Our first day in Barcelona it was pouring rain. I saw this place was close and that it was reviewed well. The first thing that brought us in was the series of drip wax candles in the front window which was perfect on a rainy night. The drinks are great, and they give a tapa with them which in my...

Blink and you miss it! The narrow entrance looks like a tiny bar, but it keeps going inside to a restaurant. It is extremely popular and busy with a great atmosphere and good tapas and wine. A great little Barcelona find.

Lovely buzzy little back street bar and tapas place. Made us very welcome despite being crammed full - put our name on a blackboard and called us after a beer and a free nibble. Food was fresh, interesting and delicious.

Neighbourhood Profile
Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)

It blends historic artifacts from its days under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and authentic culinary experiences.

Fashionistas will be drawn to Portal de L’Angel, which is lined with well-known brand names and smaller boutique stands.
