My Husband and I ate here recently after hearing from a few friends how wonderful the place was. We were not very impressed at all. Although the Resturant itself is lovely inside, the food is very average and the service is appalling. There was a large party seated this particular night, and the waiters didn't seemed to be bothered about any other table. I asked for a second glass of wine and I thought he had gone to Spain for it! After waiting 20 minutes at the end of our meal for the bill we ended up going up to pay for it at the till. Won't be returning.

Dined here on Wednesday evening and we were very impressed. Great tasting selection of 'tapas' at a very reasonable price and the service was excellent. It was very busy but there was no problem getting a table even though we didn't have a reservation. We went for a selection of the arbutus toasts, the mussels and the pig cheeks which all tasted wonderful. The wine list is a bit limited with about 20 wines on offer but it seems to tick all the boxes. It was our first time here but we will definitely be back!

We loved this classic small tapas bar on Bridge Street. Not like Spain, but just as tasty, and with a very chic atmosphere, casual, yet classy. The staff were terrrific, the wine was great, and the tapas were just outstanding (especially liked the Arbutus goat cheese with fig, and the halloumi salad, but the crab croquets and patatas bravas were authentic with a nice twist). Wish we had this at home!

Service very average and the loos were very dirty including hand wash area. Portions very small for high price tag.

Just wanted to say that we had a fantastic evening in Boqueria. This was not my first visit but my partner had never been before and was really impressed with not only the food (which was AMAZING) but also the atmosphere and attentive service. Our waitress whose name I sadly didn't catch was very friendly and we were regularly asked if we were ok and if the food was good. We were seated next to a larger group who had some rather petty gripe about something related to oysters but we could not have enjoyed our choices more. The only (minor) gripe that I may have had was that our food was a long time arriving but we did order several items from the menu so it was understandable.
Really lovely evening
