The place might look super crowded from outside (maybe it is) but hop in and ask for a table. There is plenty of space inside so the queue may not be long. And the wait is worth it! Have a look at the bar to have an idea of the bocadillos (small sandwiches) and tapas they have. They look and... More

I went alone to Barcelona, staying at Eixample. I wanted to try tapas and tue hotel host recommend me this one, and the experience was amazing, must try the huevos cabreados and montaditos de lomo. Prices are fair. Is very concurred so probably you have to wait to be seated

Fantastic food - great atmosphere - authentic Spanish tapas with excellent service. In the center of Barcelona so it gets busy but you can reserve

Visited this restaurant three times on my recent visit to Barcelona. The place is always busy and the tapas and desert are great. To avoid the queues I recommend getting there before traditional Spanish Lunch and Dinner times.

3 of us called into this fantastic tapas bar on a busy Friday evening. The restaurant was very busy, filled with locals and tourists alike. Grab a seat at the bar and reserve a table, so you can enjoy a drink and a nibble whilst you wait. The Tapas were so tasty that all 3 of us were delighted we... More

Finally a place worth 5 stars. We went there several times during our stay, and it was perfect every time. We where sitting at the bar, with the food right in front of us. The waiters are friendly, whatever you order arrives almost immediately. Everything is fresh and tasty. And the best thing is: for the quality you get this... More

Had dinner there. Tapas. Fantastic authentic and really tasty food. Great portions with a wide variety . Prawns and Razor Clams were awesome . Exactly what we were looking for. Wines are well selected and inexpensive. Overall a really great night out with children and relatively inexpensive 130 Euro incl wine. Totally recommend this experience. Arrive early before 8 pm...

You can choose among a wide variety of tapas, there are hot tapas on the other side of the bar. Excelent to go with friends and have a few tapas with a glass of wine or a beer. At certain times it is very crowded and it is difficult to find a place

We went here to eat tapas recommended by friends and we had seen good reviews online. The waiters were not friendly, everything is rushed and the environment is Crowded and noisy. The food is expensive for the quality served. Would not recommend or come back.

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.
