“Mmm, dont waste your time ir money”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 September 2013 via mobile

We found this place on trip advisor City App as it directions ti get there using the amazing compass. We got there and the cook was acting as waiter/barman and greeter he pointed to a courtyard out the back where there was about six tables of Spanish diners, i though this was a good sign but that where my good impresson left me.
The cook said the owner was coming soon and would take our order as he didnt speak very good English, no problem but he took about 30 minutes to arrive and he was friendly enough but took another 30 minutes to bring the wine this an hour now!
We ordered Tapas and only three dishes arrived which is normal as Tapas is cooked to order, but after waiting another hour i found the owner smoking a spliff!
He apologised and brought out a dish of crushed doritoes which was supposed to resemble natchos.
We were told we had to sit inside as he didnt have a garden licence after 11pm and gave up waiting for the other dish to arrive. The owner was having a domestic with his wife and the constant smell of cannabis was wafting from the kitchen, no wonder we couldnt get any food as the owner was stoned!
After 3 patient hours we gave up and only stayed this long as we got chatting to another couple. What food we did have was average, no it was poor and its a wonder it is still
Open, even the Spanish customers were annoyed being kept waiting.
There are so many places to eat dont waste your time in thus one.

“Best Burger in Barcelona”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2013 via mobile

The only reason I didn't give this retaurant a 5 star review is because the waitress only spoke Spanish and we had trouble communicating. As far as the food is concerned, it was very delicious ! We were surprised how good the burger was and went there a second time to try it. Highly recommend this restaurant.

“Notable neighbourhood tapas and bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2013

We ate here on the recommendation of previous Tripadvisor reviews and were not disappointed. The key ingredient here is the staff, particularly the owner who is charming and funny.

The wine I was offered was very interesting and different to the usual vino blanco. The beer selection was also beyond the typical Estrella and Van Damm.

We ate tapas. The selection was outside the usual which again was welcome. Most of the sauces are home made. Overall the food was OK, not brilliant but not bad either.

Santutxo is greatvlue, has a warm neighbourhood vibe and is worth the walk.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2013

That's the excellent place to eat locally and the food was much better than in posh places I tried before.

Tasty food, nice bartender, reasonable prices. It's a pity I didn't find this place earlier.
Definitely recommended.
