What an awesome place! The ambiance is wonderful and feels authentically rustic! A real taverna/bodega feel. They have a wine wall filled with an extensive selection of wines from floor to ceiling with hanging legs of Iberico jamon. And the food was so delicious! Try...More

I loved the setting, the restaurant had a very cozy feel. Almost like a cozy stone cave. The charcuterie Board was a smorgasbord of different tastes and flavors. Excellent wines. I highly recommend this tapas place. It’s not a 5 star restaurant but it’s definitely...More

We were fortunate enough to visit here on our tapas walking tour. We had some great samples and a very nice wine and the atmosphere was excellent.

This restaurant is off the beaten path, but well worth it after finding it. Get atmosphere very nostalgic, I could have stayed here for hours just for the ambience. Great food, great service and wonderful staff.

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

If possible, call them during their work hours. I tried to do it myself, but it was tough. They are always so busy. Open only at night and closed on Sundays. We were lucky. We happened to be walking by right when they opened... More
