Nice place, clean and well presented. Cocktails were as you would expect, tried two dishes from the mains menu and both were great! Would recommend.

We had to wait for a seat which can be a good sign. Staff very friendly. All tapas were served on a crusty bread base. There was a good selection of tapas at a competitive price. The set menu included a good serving paella - which was tasty. The Estrella lager was very welcome and at an average price. Well... More

A good atmosphere with friendly staff. The food wasn't that great as the tapas buffet was quite limited and all bread based but the seafood paella was good.

The place actually has a cool, hip vibe and plays good music. The tapas are just okay; everything comes on a crostini for some reason when only a few items warrant it. Probably to fill you up faster and save on costs! The paella that came with the buffet menu was poor consisting all the paella around here; it seemed... More

We recommend to visit this restaurant for a quick bite. The tapas are delicious and in large portions, price quality ratio is perfect and our waiter was very hospitable. Advise; Order the gambas, we loved it!

Lovely little place with a nice atmosphere and funky music. We both had all you can eat tapas with paella and a desert for €15!!! Drinks came to an extra €9 via a pint of Estralla and a house red wine. Couldn't have wanted anything else a great find.

Our first visit to an all-you-can-eat tapas bar, in fact our first ever visit to any tapas bar. Located in the old town, Tapas Royale offered some good tapas, a good paella, good drinks and a service minded staff. Well worth a visit.

We went in here for the 5 euro cocktail & nachos deal- which is excellent value considering a cocktail alone was supposed to be around 9 euros. We ended up having tapas here a couple of nights in a row and it was tasty and reasonably priced- especially as it is located just off La Rambla. The drinks were good... More

Nice bar and staff were sweet. I wanted to check out this place but found prices very expensive. €4 for a caña is not cool. As a local I won't be recommending this bar. So many other interesting places in this area.
