This is a classical basque restaurant in Barcelona. You can come here for the pinchos (probably the best place in Barcelona for this) but also to have a great lunch or dinner.

Despite there is no menu, the waiter tell you directly the dishes so you have no idea about the prices, at the end you won't have an unpleasant surprise when you ask for the bill. The quality is impressive but the prices are not very expensive.

The steak is impressive and tender and the sea food dishes: clams or haddock are very good cooked. Moreover, it's one of the best places in Barcelona to try a really good spanish tortilla (and Barcelona is not very famous for this dish).

The wine list completes very well the dishes.

This place was packed from the moment we walked in, and as a Londoner I wasn't used to the standing, high-stool style of eating. The Pinxo/tapas served here is fantastic - both the hot and the cold. Make sure to ask for the wine you see them pouring with the high dripping pour into a normal glass rather than a wine glass, it's the perfect compliment to the food. And when they offer you the cheesecake, say yes, just say yes. If they don't offer, ASK!

This is a super popular place among the locals. Doors open at 830pm for dinner and MASSIVE crowds are already in line @ 8:05pm waiting to get in and get a seat at the bar counter.

The restaurant doesn't take any reservations for standing/bar counter tapas (because it is cheaper than sitting down in the restaurant). Reservation is only available for dining in the sit-down restaurant. During our dinner in the restaurant, the phone kept on ringing from customers who want to schedule future dinners.

Don't stuff yourself with all the cold tapas! Wait for the hot ones to come! (but they are usually gone within 10 seconds before you could even reach out your plate...) Don't be too polite at the tapas bar :) You need to be a little aggressive to get your food. Remember, just a little :) (and act gracefully)

The restaurant also have really good food, especially the steak! The beef was so tender and was only 15 euro! But I would recommend to ask for the salt on the side and NOT ON the steak itself though (a bit too salty for me).

The fish must also be good cuz we witnessed a group of local businessmen ordered fish as their main course.

We had the cheesecake flan for dessert, which was recommended by a very capable waitress who spoke fluent English. It was totally amazing! I have not had such light and tasty cheesecake for a long time!

I would certainly recommend anyone visiting BCN to try this place, especially for those who are staying in L'Eixample.

Had our delayed Christmas dinner in this Basque family restaurant. Wonderful tapas and Basque white wine starters. Excellent a la carte menu and wonderful service from the staff.
