Beers and cheap food with banter going on between staff and customers, enjoyable place. I was mesmerised watching the chef cook the numerous meals in the tiny kitchen and all looked really good.

We ate here on our first night after arriving in Barcelona. If you're looking for an authentic Spanish experience, I would suggest going elsewhere. The staff foreigners who looked like backpackers trying to earn some cash while travelling. We ordered the tapas mixed plate to share between the two of us. It was a big and filling plate of food...

We were wandering the alleyways of the gothic quarter when we came across this bar. Stopped off for a glass of red wine.

The food was delicious (we ate mixed plate of tapas, portion is huge for two people - 15€), and the price was also good. But there was too crowded in the evening.

The bathrooms were absolutely terrible. There was something on the floor that looked like puke. We ordered patatas bravas and sangria and were very disappointed. Compared to other places the potatoes were soggy and the sauce tasted funny. Not to mention, my stomach was upset after them for the entire night. I think maybe it just wasn't fresh...

if you are visiting barcelona, this does seem to be the place to go. the staff are well informed and very friendly, as well as being totally international to help deal with any requests. The pub quiz on friday is particuarly popular and a great evening!
