Good restaurant with an excellent wine list. We had the lamb shank after tapas appetizers - which worked well. Excellent meal in a nice space in the Gothic quarter of Barcelona.

Stumbled onto this place aa we were trying to escape the commercial places of Las Ramblas. We only had tapas and wine but enjoyed the food, ambiance and service very much. A truly relaxing and satisfying stop. We will be back!

Most disappointing meal I can remember. Every dish was very bland, overcooked and overpriced. No atmosphere whatsoever in the restaurant. So many better places to eat. Avoid.

We had a great meal at Xaloc. Located in the Gothic Quarter near our hotel H10 Raco Di Pi. Good service. Very good tapas from ham croquettes to seafood to lamb. Very tasty sangria. Reasonable prices. Homemade ice cream. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Possibly the best tapas in town. With a selection of quality ingredients. With the staff always there to inform about the origin of the food.
