“Tourist trap with good value for money”
Reviewed 1 May 2014

We were a bit surprised to find out this was really a place for tourists waiting in line as we has been told by friends this was a great place for tapas in Barcelona. Food was ok but bot exceptional and we didn't have to wait too long so it was ok. Surprisingly cheap for Barcelona though. Would not go back however. There are better places for tapas minus the crowds and rude waiters even on the rambla de catalunya and with much better food. One we liked was taller de tapas, they have 3-4 establishments all good.

“Delicous tapas great atmosphere”
Reviewed 1 May 2014 via mobile

Ate here twice during a short break in Barcelona. Once at lunch time once late evening. Delicious tapas, the patatas bravas are great - lovely garlicky sauce. Fantastic atomosphere, busy but a great buzz. Friendly staff. The house white was lovely too!

“Excellent choice for tapas in Gracia”
Reviewed 28 April 2014 via mobile

Great menu offerings plus menu of the day. We had the huevos cabreados, navajas, croquetas, calamari, jabugo, pan tomate and dry manchego. Simply delicious. For dessert flan and crema catalana, superb. A bit pricier than other similar places in the area but really worth it.

“Worth the wait”
Reviewed 28 April 2014 via mobile

One of the seemingly busiest tapas restaurants in Barcelona - but worth the wait. Bustling and fun - with amazing food. Service is quick and efficient. Try the mareco (sp?) wonderful fish dish. Fun place - lots of cross-convo between tables. Highly recommend.
