The food is excellent and super fresh. The people there were very helpful in giving advice about what to pick. There's a large sit down portion of the restaurant, but we sat at the counter where there's more decent turnover, but there were constantly people behind us trying to order takeout or vying for our seats. 5 plates of tapas...

One of the best places to eat in the center of Barcelona. The. Food is excellent and service is good. The problem is that there is always queue and no reservations allowed.

It was a Friday evening, thus...Very busy, and so very crowded. For dinner, reservations a must. But for tapas, stand and wait for a bar seat to open up and enjoy! Delicious food!! But most likely a long wait. Interesting local and international crowd. Away from the bulk of tourists, although the word is out.

Some of the best tapas I tasted during my 2 week trip in Barcelona, and I was eating tapas for either lunch or dinner every one of the days I was there. Great spanish food and interesting to see that almost all of the servers come from Philippines. Nice, gentle and hospitable people that make you feel comfortable and wanting... More

Choose from a variety of tapas from the counter and you can also order freshly cooked dishes from the ala carte menu. We had a dish recommended by the waitress - made from fried potato chips covered with eggs and sauce? Unique and delicious. Gets crowded.

After eating out every day for one week this was far the best tapas restaurant. So much to choose from and soooo delicious. Gets very busy especially Friday and Saturday evenings.

Yes the service is bad, they don't care about you. Yes it seems you need to wait for ages ...not completely right though. I go to barcelona several times a year and always end up there, because the ratio price/quality of tapas is one of the best in Barca. Simple traditional recipes that never changed over the years, that feels... More

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
