We finally stopped at this great little dive after walking by every time we left our hotel. It was always packed with locals. Great juices for breakfast, house made vermouth with your tapas. Super yummy, glad we finally stopped in.

Excellent find! A little jewel of a tapas bar which is easy to miss. Tapas are excellent, patatas brava, anchovy tapas are highly recommended and there's another tapa which is toasted bread with anchovies, alioli and green peppers which is to die for. Service good...More

We stumbled across this after going to the Boqueria market. There are tables in a courtyard, and well priced tapas. We had a vermouth and a Patatas Bravas which was made with smoked paprika. Not traditional but one of the nicest we had in Barcelona

I pass by the bar pretty often and stop by for a snack or coffee. It's just an average bar in Raval where you can have a quick bite or drink. Yesterday, I stopped by for a cafe and paid 50 euro bill since I...More

A great hole in the wall (literally) that makes you feel like a local in El Raval. Great choice of drinks, mouth-watering sandwiches (lamb, mango & rocket salad; yum!), great service - love it! Also perfect for a quick cortado & breakfast in the morning...More

This is a great little bar selling inexpensive large measure drinks. Friendly staff, nice outdoor seating area where you can relax and chill out. My only regret is that I didn't try the food. I will definitely revisit here next time in Barcelona.

walked by this place several times and it was always busy so we decided to try it. Had inexpensive beer and wine and delicious bocadillos. Great place, very local crowd. Highly recommended.

El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this
gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an
excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic
spots in the entire city. A sense of humble
authenticity protrudes from the many independent
record stores, second hand shops, and student bars
that seem to light up the streets day and night. The
rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day
