Really nice, small funky place. I loved tapas there especially guacamole, never ate better one. I was kind of disappointed with staff attitude as they were quite rude to us, maybe they were just having bad day. Prices reasonable. Location just in old town city. Definitely recommended.

Great little place in Placa George Orwell. Relaxed friendly staff. The place has that shabby chic look that is popular. A mix of locals and tourists, worth a visit.

This place is in Placa George Orwell, not far from the athedral and Palaca Reial. We stumbled across it by accident one night and stopped for a few glasses of wine. A couple of days later, on the day we were leaving Barcelona, we stopped there for a coffee before deciding where to have our last lunch. While sitting there,... More

It turned out to be a great little bar where you could enjoy winding down from a day's sight-seeing in friendly surroundings. Prices are good and both the wine and tapas we had were excellent. I agree with some other reviewers that... More

I always head straight here, when I am in Barcelona and it immediately makes me feel relaxed and happy. Whilst not in the best area of the city it's fairly safe but I usually go early evening, rather than late night. It's got a bohemian/student type atmosphere and the staff are super-efficient. Prices for drinks are pretty reasonable and it... More
