My husband and I went to Maitea today for dinner, after reading many sterling reviews on this cozy, friendly joint. When we entered the restaurant, one of the servers who spoke English came to greet us. He was a young, very charming server who was very helpful and assisted us in choosing good tapas from the menu in a friendly,... More

Friendly staff, the hot pinchos were served without too much wait, it still feels authentic. It is a big place, however it doesn't get too laud and we were able to talk without shouting... More

This authentic tapas restaurant was superior in every way to others. He staff were friendly and helpful with my poor Spanish and the food was unbelievable. Don't miss the crab pinxos and anything pork related. The white wine was superb! Food, wine for 2 ( a lot of both) $50 US.

As an American who prefers to eat at 7, I appreciate that you can get their whole menu before 8:00. A good not-fancy place to grab a drink and a quality snack

Tipical Basque Country tavern (Sant Sebastian origin) where you can enjoy too many cooked and also fresh delicious pintxos like Spanish "tortilla", "xistorra" and so on. You can also order bigger portions. Really nice quality and normal prices. Enjoy also typical white wine named txacoli.

Heard about this restaurant from Andrew Zimmern TV show. Took a taxi here from hotel for late lunch on a Sunday. Few people were eating since we were past lunch and too early for dinner (great hour). Food was absolutely delicious. Lots of tapas choices and main dishes. My roasted lamb was the best that I have ever eaten. Will... More

Good choice of very fresh hot and cold. Extremely helpful staff who explain the ordering process. For cold just help yourself from the displays and keep the sticks which are totted up at the end for bill. So easy and of course tempting!!

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
