An innocuous looking restaurant and quite small and crowded at the entrance. But go in! The staff were all lovely, service excellent . The beer , local IPA and the wine were tasty and the food, tapas and tostadas were all delicious. Highly recommended

After we had an OK lunch we searched for a great tapas restaurant for our final night in Barcelona and found this place with a decent rating not far from our hotel on Google maps. It didn’t disappoint, the food and service were excellent, we...had the stuffed red peppers & Zaalouk: Baked tomatoes from the tapas section and from the Tostas the BRIE: Truffled brie cheese & ESCALIVADA: Baked aubergines and red peppers with a bottle of red wine for 60€. We sat inside and it’s really cool, this little stone passageway and you get to know the people sat next to you! Thanks for a great meal!More

This place is still a favorite serving up great toasts and tapas along with beer and wine by the glass. It is tiny and has four outside tables and it is almost always full. The food is first rate - We just had the stuffed...peppers tapas and the Bree toast with iberian ham and other goodies. Worth a special trip. located in the Barri Gothic just a few short blocks from the cathedral.More

If you are looking for a quirky, cosy little taverna for tapas this is definitely your place to be! The service was top notch and staff were really welcoming, the cocktails were to die for and the food out of this world tasty! We went...back twice in the space of 2 days it was that good!

This is a fabulous place, food great and cocktails were brilliant. Service was a bit miserable but not sure if that’s because we weren’t local. All I’ll say is please be very careful outside as we had our wallet stolen. Hearing other peoples stories, it’s...clear a lot of elaborate scams operate in Barcelona and being really honest, it makes you wonder if some of these hotels and restaurants aren’t in on it.More

I can say it's the sweetest place I've been to in Barcelona. Its location is close to the liveliest squares of Barcelona. The venue is reached through happy people dancing and singing on the street. We tried tapas, tostas and sangria at the venue. All...of them were delicious. Be sure to try calamari from tapas and pizza tostas from tostas. Their staff is just as sweet. The dancing blonde lady and the lady who popped champagne on us while we were paying were also great ( champagne exploded accidentally, it was a funny memory :)).More

We ordered simple tostas for the children 5 minutes after we sat down. About 20 minutes later the waitress confirmed what we ordered. 45 minutes later none of our hot meals were prepared, she said it will take 5 more minutes. My children were watching...us eat cold tapas while their food wasn’t ready. After indicating to the waitress that we ordered 45 minutes ago and the starting children were still waiting, she said the kitchen is busy and it will take 10 more minutes. When we came in, they had two occupied tables. No explanation as provided, they didn’t even try to make it faster or a priority. Terrible service, no consideration. We paid for the tapas we had, drinks and left. We didn’t get any apologies.More

Close to my hotel, best tapas in Barcelona by far as I’ve been to Barcelona multiple times and while there I’ve always visited many restaurants and tapa bars in Barcelona. But this place beats all others with great cuisines, atmosphere and wines. When I’m back...in Barcelona again this is the first place I will visit for sure.More

We enjoyed the tapas here. The stuffed red peppers and bread tapas were delicious! I’d go back for those. The sangria was fresh and filled with fruit. Outdoor seating was filled so we sat inside. Seating is pretty close inside.

It only opens for dinner. When not open you wouldn't think anything was there. Best to ask a local.
