If you like tapas and beer this is the place to go. Its crouded but their draught beer is fabulous and their tapas will make you smile with every bite. It is easy to see why this is a favortie of locals.

Close to Barceloneta metro. Been a couple of times, great tapas, good service and atmosphere. Seems to be popular with tourists and locals alike. Get a seat at the bar if at all possible - otherwise, prepare to breathe in! Recommended

The beer and tapas were both great. Sank a couple of 'filo' beers which are very moreish! The tapas are traditional I took some boquerones, chorizo, black pudding and croquettes, all good. The steak and fois gras looked very good, you can sit and watch them make it! So grab a seat at the bar and enjoy.

Tiny restaurant (it only disposes of a bar and stools for sitting), always packed and the food reveals their secret. Frenetic rythm, quick, simple traditional spasnish dishes and tapas with great quality and a very fair price. The food is displayed in sight along the bar. Old time decoration and the uniformed bartenders confer the place a sensation of hard... More

My favorite restaurant during our stay in Barcelona. Interesting seating along a long bar with the food displayed in front of you. Great service, very friendly staff. Amazing freshly prepared food. The sirloin with foie gras was a highlight! Unfortunately closed for renovations when we tried to go back.

Simply the best tapas, this place is a "must do" on everyone's list. They make their own beer and original menu for the tapas!! Recommended by friends, I first went to this place five years ago and make it the first place I stop at every time I'm in town! Particularly good is the steak with Foisgras, really something to...

Good place to sit at a bar to have beer and traditional tapas. In the Barceloneta area. The beer is home made and very cold.

Staying in Barceloneta

Neighbourhood Profile
Originally a fisherman’s quarter, this quaint area can’t escape its small village feel: laundry hanging over the narrow streets, old ladies clamoring at each other from their balconies and elder gentlemen playing games on short wooden benches gossiping the day away, Barceloneta could double as a film set. Artists line the boardwalk displaying their magnificently detailed sand structures making this the most visited beach in the city (the shirtless men working out might help too). You’ll know by the delicious aroma that you're in the right place to try some of the best and most authentic seafood including paella, Spain’s national dish.
