It's not easy to find a table for dinner; we managed to have one on the third time to get there because we were 6 people for dinner; nice and cozy with a great variety of small plates of typical Catalan cuisine; mid-range prices at the end when you also drink moderately

Very authentic, not too far off main drag but not a touristic rip off joint. Great patatas bravas with a special salsa picante. Good music. Cash only. Ver reasonable - less than €50 for 3 people including wine and beer.

Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant. Food fantastic. Small, scruffy, basic and fabulous. full of locals so they must be doing something right. Will be back. Don't ever change (though I can't see it!)

We found this "local" while out for supper not far from the Cathedral. Great hosts and service, good tapas, local atmosphere, all in a simple but tastefully decorated local. Highly recommended for a good supper.

Found this place through trip advisor and was not disappointed, best potato bravas so far (chilli and lemon sauces homemade) . Portions large so go careful but packed with flavour and the bar is so typically Spanish and full of locals it is not to be missed. Service excellent and we will return

This little bar is situated near the Cathederal and was very busy when we first arrived. Quite a shabby little place, we were dubious at first. Good service and a few beers later we settled in. There were many Spanish people in the place, music and lots of chatting. We ordered some tapas - patatas bravas with wonderful homemade mayo... More

Busy, lively ... Rough around the edges but the service was brill and the best tapas we've had so far. The mayo and chilli sauce for the bravas was homemade (unlike many of the others we've had) and delicious. The Babia salad was extremely tasty too!
