Lots of beers from around world, but only 1 Scottish beer which was brew dog.., more beers from Scotland would be more apt for a bar called Pipers emblazoned with tartan , McEwans export a must 👍🏻 Although busy with locals, welcoming. Nice and clean.

We came across this little tavern and sat down for a drink. Having seen the food others were eating chose to order a little tapas. The food was lovely and tasty. It's not a place to go out of your way for but a tasty treat should you be passing by. Lovely friendly staff and locket freshly cooked tasty food

It is a great place to meet friend and spend time catching up. You can nibble on a variety of tapas or order a sandwich. I sampled both: first a small tapa consisting of... More

Stopped by at lunch as have walked by many times and the place is always hopping. No different today for lunch. Ordered the daily lunch special. As evident in the photos the ternera had very little actual meat, it was more or less a hunk of tough fat. In general looking at other dishes they appeared only a little bit... More

Stopped by whilst site seeing in Barcelona and wanted a quick, authentic tapas lunch. This restaurant did not disappoint. Great quality food, very quick service and very friendly staff. Excellent value for money and would suggest to people who want someone to eat in this area of the city.

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
