Wow, we had an awesome experience here. We were three hungry colleagues after a tiring day at a conference, so we got to try a nice portion of the menu and everything was cooked to perfection. The area is very touristic, so expect above-average prices. Still, I wouldn't label this as an expensive place. It's also not a fancy place... More

Absolutely wonderful! A delightful take on classic tapas cooked to perfection. Each new dish was exemplary- this is what tapas strives to be. Food aside, the venue and atmosphere were excellent, and from the staff you could get a feeling they truly cared their work- special thanks to our waitress, Valeria 😊

We thoroughly enjoyed this little bar restaurant. Six couples ask the manager to just feed us. We had two with allergies....one gluten free and one egg and almond free. No problem with the allergies. We had many tapas ranging from smoked fish to osso buco balls. Two pitchers of cava sangria. Wonderful time and really good!

We stopped in for a drink at the bar and we returned the next day. Really nice place with it's own atmosphere, very friendly staff and great music. We tried some of the tapas - great with a very imaginative display, the wine was great!

Ate here a few times while in Barcelona. Really gorgeous meat and the calamari was something else. Great staff too.

We stopped in here for a drink at the bar - loads of young, cool people there - but all very friendly. Sat at the bar and watched the world go by - relaxed funky place. The bar staff were very busy but helpful. Saw some of the tapas and really liked how it was displayed (very imaginative) - so... More

This is the best tapas bar. Every single menu is decent, and the atmosphere is great. I went there twice with my friends during my (single) trip to Barcelona. The onglet stake is amazing.

Went there to celebrate two birthdays for friends coming from abroad, called the night before to make sure a birthday celebration would be planned at dessert, and they forgot!
