This is one of the best places to eat in Barcelona! Everything we ate was delicious. You can expect a wait but you can always go for a walk while waiting for your table. We at fried squid, octopus, assorted meats and cheese, tenderloin with fois, anchovies, pan con tomate and 5 desserts! So yummy. That being said we were... More

Even on a bank holiday Sunday we only had to wait 20 minutes for a table, and when we could drink sangria while we waited we hardly noticed! The place was busy but well staffed and the food was absolutely fantastic, especially the octopus and the patatas bravas. Not unreasonably priced either.

This place is PACKED. Trip advisor has blown this place (and thier Egos) up. We tried for 3 consecutive days to make reservations, put our names down, and were consistently offered a chance to eat after 1.5 hours at midnight.

Food was delicious. Tapas are really good and desserts too. Try crema catalana is a must! The place is well located, you can miss it.

Even the pickiest of eaters can eat something amazing here. No reservations - the 3 of us came around 3pm and the place was packed, we were seated in about 20 mins. Sangria was good- almost too good that you could drink too much too fast! Great excuse for a siesta. The specials (croissant with cured meat and cheese), the... More

This place on Mallorca 236 has been recommended to us by several friends so we went together with a few friends to explore. We all ordered different tapas and none of us were disappointed - especially the seafood selection is big. Although it is also a very popular and busy place and we stayed there for almost 3 hours the... More

Although we did not have to wait, we would wait to eat here as the food was so divine. We went for tapas (Patatas Bravas, Jamon Iberi, Solomillo con, Huevos Cabreaos and Pescadito Frito) with a pitcher of Sangria. Service was excellent. Quality of food was incredible. I had some of these tapas at other restaurants and was forever spoiled... More

The best casual tapas place in Barcelona. The food is excellent and the service is very good. Quite hard to get a table so I recommend to sitting on the bar. The prices are very reasonable so I recommend to try one from everything. Don't miss it while in Barcelona!!!

Not crowded in February and I was able to quickly get a seat at the bar in front of the massive display of tapas. (I heard that there are very long lines in summer.) I ordered some wine, a type of salad, seafood tapas and octopus - three large tentacles on top of three huge hunks of potato. It was... More

I come to Barcelona every year and I make sure I come here for nearly all my lunches. Its simply delicious. Fresh produce, efficient and fast staff, and most importantly, it's consistent. I couldn't recommend it high enough.

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.
