Delicious tapas, big size portions, small price. Fresh food and friendly and local place. Recommended!!

The signage calls it as above so I guess they changed their name. Delicious tapas, especially the octopus. Friendly service and because we were struggling to choose off the blackboard, we trusted the waiter when he offered to make a mixed selection. Wise decision!

We stumbled on this place at lunchtime with a queue outside, so we guessed it must be good! Went back for evening meal and were not disappointed. Busy, buzzy place with great atmosphere. Not the place for a quiet, romantic meal. Menu only on the...More

Don't waste your time and rush to this place. The taste of "Pulpo a la Gallega" is just to good to be true cooked to perfection. Now on more serious topics...if you happen to be a "Croqueta" connoisseur....the bechamel...ham flavor and cooking technique of this...More

This place was quite crowded and a bit small but the food was very delicious and we enjoyed a lunch here. The place was recommended to us by a tour guide. We ordered a mix of tapas for 5 people for cca 10euros per person.

Perhaps not the place for a quiet romantic meal for two, as it's a brightly lit bar with locals popping in for a quick drink and bite to eat but we had a great time non the less. The service was very quick and friendly,...More

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
