Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Even though this restaurant is across from the Palau de la Musica Catalana, it is not a tourist trap. The food is excellent and the prices very reasonable. It fills up fast so go early. We went about 6:50 pm and within 1/2 hour it...was filled and people were waiting. The servers are very friendly and welcoming and do not rush you.More

Really tasty tapas, good value and great service in a central location, I would definitely recommend it if you’re in the area.

A great tapas restaurant with a great selection of local food to try. We had their empanadas, mini lasagne, fried squid, bread with tomato and garlic shrimp. All of which was very delicious! They do not take reservations, so hope for good luck in getting...a table.More

We came for a late lunch around 3 pm on a Saturday and had a fantastic experience. The inside was clean and air conditioned and not too busy when we arrived. It looks like full capacity is around 50 guests. The food and drink prices...were very reasonable and the service was prompt and friendly. Last but not least, all the food we ordered was excellent and plentiful.More

The food and service was great. I would had rated this as a 4 for one reason and that being AC but have to remember American culture is different the bartender was friendly and attractive. The other staff made sure we didn’t over order for...the table and had plenty of drinks and food for us to enjoy. I would return again if I get the opportunity to come back to Barcelona.More

Great place to go for drinks and tapas. Very reasonably priced. Dark and funky atmosphere at night and very convivial place. In the gothic quarter.

We went one afternoon for drinks and dessert. The apple apricot crumble and Cava sangria was so good we had to go back. We ordered tapas - a small steak and the vegetable lasagna. They were delicious! And, of course, we had to have the...apple apricot crumble again. These were two of our favorite dining experiences during our in Barcelona. I’m still thinking about this lovely little restaurant.More

We really enjoyed this place, the montaditos and empanadas were new to us and very nice. The solomillo was the tastiest sirloin steak that we have ever had.

El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
places that live and breathe such exciting energy
regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants

Check directly with restaurant. If there is an event at the concert hall, I would assume they're open. Good to plan ahead as the place is small.
