We came here for dinner at 7:30pm. It was really quiet so we were a bit worried maybe it wouldn't be too good. The place filled up really quickly and the wine, service and food were all amazing!

I was surprised by basically everything they had to offer. The food delivery time was really fast and it tasted absolutely amazing! My go to dish to see if a restaurant is any good is Grilled octopus and they nailed it. The servers are young, enthusiastic, friendly and very concerned with your experience. The prices are very good too! You... More

I visited on a Wednesday around 6pm and whilst the kitchen was closed until 7.30pm I could still order from a few tapas dishes. The ham croquettes were yummy and the tomatoes on bread and fried bacon were delicious. To top it all off I was only charged €1,90 for a glass of rose which is unbelievable!!! 3 dishes and... More

Make sure you book! It is a little place and is always full because they offer VERY good food at very reasonable prices. The tapas are all first class and freshly made, and creative as well - eg brilliant patatas bravas with herbs not just allioli. Well worth the visit going off the beaten path. Ah yes, and remember to... More

We wanted to get some quality tapas for a reasonable price while in Barcelona. We opted for Tocateca as it was near our lodgings and had great reviews. Walking in, we were lucky enough to get a table for three, but the place was packed full so I would definitely recommend booking in advance, especially if you plan on visiting... More

Been here with friends, they had been there several times and said I MUST go too. It's out of the centre and thereby the touristy part. This is nice because you're (almost) only sitting there with locals and the prices are very reasonable (we ate so much and had a bottle of cava and red wine and we paid 30... More

We called in for dinner as we were very weary after a long day of sightseeing and this place was just around the corner from our hotel. We were so glad we did! The place was full of locals (we were the only Brits in there) and was very bustly and busy which gave it a nice atmosphere. Our waitress... More
