You can go anytime between 7 am and 16 pm. The tapas and little plates are really fantastic!! The owner is a real character, always laughing, friendly and knowing after a couple of words with you, what would you like best!!! Good coffee and reasonable prices.

We ordered pretty much everything that we saw on the counter and loved every single dish! There were two other groups in front of us and the waitress did a great job of being aware of open seats and keeping the line moving quickly in very high stress environment.

Busy bar; great location in the market; I sat next to a lovely Spanish couple who helped with the language as Mr Pinotxo's English wasn't great - but then my Spanish isn't so no issue with that! I wish I could have eaten more and if I'd been in Barcelona longer I would definitely have gone back.

The first thing to call my attention was the big smile of one of those attendant ( the older one). If you go there, just ask for a xuxo and a cup of coffee. Believe me. Simple and good!

Bar Pinotxo became a regular during my trip to Barcelona. Get there early or before the mid-day rush at 11 am. Food and service are excellent.

Wifey & I had a wonderful experience here. We had to wait 10 minutes to get a couple of seats, but it was worth the wait. Great to sit at the bar & watch the staff working away frantically producing all the various meals. We had fresh oysters, steamed clams, steamed lobster, steak & salad, minced pork mixed with mushrooms... More

Its right near the entrance and we went based on the amazing reviews on TA and it didnt dissapoint! We grabbed beef stew, lamb chops, prawns and the house speciality, chickpeas with black pudding - absolutely amazing and highly recommend the chickpeas dish! With two drinks, total was €30 - excellent value! Highly recommend!

Been meaning to visit this Barcelona icon for years. Finally managed to get two stools at the bar. The food is obviously fresh, local and superb! What really makes this place is the fantastic staff. Grab a drink, order some tapas and watch the world go by, you'll love it!

I would recommend this place. It's Yummy! We had the following: Grilled Shrimp - definitely a must, although I find this dish very expensive Grilled lobster - Nothing special, I don't really recommend this. It's 25 euro. Baby octopus with beans - a must try. Yum! Beef stew - nothing special about this. We made a mistake on this one.... More

Pinotxo is one of the first booths in the lovely Mercado de la Boqueria on Las Ramblas (one of the best markets in the world). We ventured here on a recommendation for good coffee at 6 am. The coffee was the best ever and the darling gentleman serving has probably been working there forever. They make a delicious breakfast of... More

Staying in El Raval

Neighbourhood Profile
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 forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
