“Great Basque tapas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2014

Authentic Basque tapas, served in traditional tapas style. There is a restaurant at the back; but we just use the tapas bar at the front. Gets very busy, so you should get there around 8:30 pm, and join the queue.

Once inside, just ask for a plate, and start helping yourself to the cold tapas on the bar. Keep hold of the sticks that each tapas is served on, as this is what you pay for when your done. Don't overdo it on the cold tapas, as every 15 minutes or so, a waitress will appear from the back, carrying a tray of hot tapas. Got to be quick to grab these; but the omelets and the fish are exceptional. All sounds very chaotic; but it's a great atmosphere, and definitely off the tourist trail.

At €1.30 (last time I was there in March 2014), per tapas, which are good size, and I reckon 10 would be a decent meal.

Been here many times, and for my money, the best tapas bar in Barcelona.

“Best Pintxos in Barcelona! Forget the menu just get the tapas!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2014

I've been living in Barcelona for 2 years and spend a lot of time exploring reasonably priced dining options around the city. This place was recommended to me by my local friends and now it's one of my favorites. The tapas are very fresh and the selection is outstanding. They open for dinner at 8:30 but I get there around 8:15 because there's usually a line in front of the door. Seating inside is very limited ( mostly bar seating directly in front of plates and plates of delicious tapas )! You need to get in there, get a seat at the bar and just try everything in front of you. Eat these little tapas with a toothpick through them until you drop! They are constantly bringing out hot tapas from the kitchen as well. Just raise your had and say how many you want. 1.40 each!! Best dinner for 20 euros! Forget the menu and fancy tables. Have a real Basque experience.

“if service is important to you don't even bother”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2014

I usually don't like to write poor reviews....but let's just say that there are much better options in Barcelona. The Lady that greeted us was so rude and made us feel extremely unwelcomed. Save your trip here and enjoy your time at another restaurant..

“Great Basque restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2014

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.
