For my first trip to Spain I was very keen to try Tapas in an authentic restaurant. I read the excellent reviews for El Xampanyet and we went for lunch today. It's just near the Picasso museum, the door was closed, but inside the place was buzzing with lunch time energy. We were seated quickly at a tiny table. I don't speak Spanish so felt very out of my depth with the Spanish menu, but two staff members were friendly and very helpful. One girl translated quickly all the tapas dishes and advised us of popular ones we wouldn't have known to pick. As a fish eating/végétarian I'm wary of menus I don't understand but she immediately knew I wouldn't want chorizo in a particular sauce so changed it.
The food came quickly and filled our tiny table. It was delicious, full of flavour and presented appetisingly.
We had about 6 plates with beers, cost about 40€. Not exactly cheap but the price you pay for excellent food in the midst of a tourist area. Highly recommended!
