Reason why we went there: it was next to the hotel and the "all you can eat offer" after a very looooong day. But if you´re looking for a good Tapas bar, go somewhere else ;-) The food was ok, but for that price you can´t expect much in Barcelona. More a quick diner atmosphere.

It looked inviting from the outside and being never been to a proper tapas bar we though this would be a good place to start to try everything as the menu board outside showing €13.95 eat all you can tapas buffet! There was only 1 lady serving the hot foods. You can serve yourself like normal buffets. And she will... More

Dear Ms We regret your experience in our restaurant. Itapa is a tapa`s buffet in which the presentation is in servings of casseroles and in smaller portions to what is usually seen in a buffet free restaurant. What makes special Itapa is also the opportunity to be able to repeat as many times as you want, because it is the... More

Three teenage girls and myself stopped here to eat. We sat outside under the umbrellas and there were also heaters that we didn't need. There was only 1 waiter waiting on the outside tables. He couldn't keep up and couldn't remember what we ordered. He had a hard time understanding what we said but instead of getting someone who could,... More

As we were hungry and passed it on the way from metro, we decided to give it a go especially that no wait for food was expected - all you can eat buffet. It also sounded like a good idea to be able to try a few different tapas. Well, unfortunately hot food wasn't hot at all, rather luke warm.... More

Poor service, waited about 10 minutes to be served, was just about to leave when waiter approached. Orders three beers, 7.50 each, most expensive beers in our week long stay in Barcelona.

Staying in La Rambla

Neighbourhood Profile
La Rambla
Barcelona's most famous street was once a dry riverbed. Now, La Rambla is a 1200-metre boulevard, and a major draw for visitors. During the day, La Rambla fills with pedestrians, some of which stroll past impressive human statues and artists while others take a break to people-watch while enjoying a drink at one of the many terraces. Housed here is the iconic Boqueria Market that offers one of the most varied and appetising selections of local produce and specialty meats and treats. While it’s important for tourists to keep an eye on their belongings at all times, this area is most safely explored in the daytime and is a must see for everyone who visits.
