Every single one of the tapas that we tried was simply delicious! It is a perfect spot either for lunch or dinner on a day of exploring Barcelona. This place is quite popular so be prepared to wait.

Service, Quality and Price. The place is always packed and for good reason. It can be noisy and a little chaotic but that just adds to the ambience. The turnaround is quick so the tapas is guaranteed to be fresh. Tourists and locals fill this place up. If you can get in you'll enjoy it.

Our guide in Barcelona took us here and ordered for us. Here are some of our favorites: Cuatro Quesos, Langosti, Huevos cabreaos, Alcachofas, pimientos de padron, and jamon jabugo. With 8 of us sharing we had a great variety and a very fair price. It seemed the place was full of local business people at lunch and not especially touristy... More

We came here four times in two days, three times for tapas and once for breakfast. It's absolutely worth the wait, you can have a drink while waiting (of the really good vino tinto de la casa, for instance) and they work hard and with a very efficient team to serve or seat you as quickly as possible. They offer... More

This place is mobbed with tourists. They don't take reservations and the wait for a table at lunch or dinner can exceed one hour. However, the food really is quite good. This was without doubt the best tapas restaurant we visited during our week long trip to Spain. Every one of the large variety of dishes we tried was fresh... More

After the hassle of getting in (we were there at a very popular hour on a Sunday) we were treated to some wonderful and varied food. Very well priced and all the classics were well represented as well as some creative additions. My only complaint is that the service felt very rushed, almost like they are trying to push you...

We came early and were seated right away, but right under halogen lights so we got quite hot! Our neighbours were close and the room was noisy, but the service was prompt, if not particularly friendly. We tried the mixed tapas plate and then had a look round at what other people were eating and ordered what we liked the... More

For sure one of the best tapas place in Barcelona. It can take 20 or 30 minutes to get a table but it is worth the wait. Very nice and casual atmosphere, family like, and some of the best tapas I have had in Barcelona.

Best value in Barcelona! Be warned, restaurant does not accept reservations and is always busy! but worth the wait. While you wait, watch the food come out of the kitchen and the tapas bar. Something for everybody, meat lovers and vegetarians both enjoyed their dinners.

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
