We finally stopped at this great little dive after walking by every time we left our hotel. It was always packed with locals. Great juices for breakfast, house made vermouth with your tapas. Super yummy, glad we finally stopped in.

Excellent find! A little jewel of a tapas bar which is easy to miss. Tapas are excellent, patatas brava, anchovy tapas are highly recommended and there's another tapa which is toasted bread with anchovies, alioli and green peppers which is to die for. Service good on the whole but waiters are run off their feet with orders so sometimes difficult to attract their attention.
Perfect typical Spanish Tapas Bar

I spend one afternoon in this bar workin' at my laptop and drinking coffee and beer.
The price is very cheap, the atmosphere so nice.
I loved the plug very useful to recharge my laptop, the strong wifi and the owner.
I will come back here.

We stumbled across this after going to the Boqueria market. There are tables in a courtyard, and well priced tapas. We had a vermouth and a Patatas Bravas which was made with smoked paprika. Not traditional but one of the nicest we had in Barcelona

I pass by the bar pretty often and stop by for a snack or coffee.
It's just an average bar in Raval where you can have a quick bite or drink.

Yesterday, I stopped by for a cafe and paid 50 euro bill since I didn't have smaller. I got the change with two 20 bills and the rest with coins. I realized that it was fake money one of the 20 bills when I got back home.

"Of course I am in Spain", I knew that I would never get it changed even if I go there and explain about it. so it was, i couldn't get it changed there when I went there today again to explain.

Well, first my fault that I didn't check the bill at the moment I received the changes.
but secondly, I want to believe that it was by mistake.
thirdly, check your bills when you get changes.

Estimado cliente, me acuerdo de ti y de tu caso, ya que fui yo quien te atendió por la mañana. No puedes reclamar un billete falso al día siguiente ya que lamentablemente, estando donde estamos, en Barcelona, debemos de dudar de todo el mundo y muchas veces nos han engañado con estas cosas, a demás tu reclamaste el billete el día después, cuando lo lógico hubiese sido haberlo reclamado el mismo día a la misma persona que te atendió. Nosotros no damos billetes falsos y si alguna vez tenemos alguno es porque alguien nos ha engañado y nos ha dado un billete falso a nosotros. Estoy seguro que la chica que te atendió ni se dio cuenta de que era falso. Lamentablemente no me puedo fiar de ti si me dices que te dimos un billete falso, ya que no puedo comprobar si ese billete te lo dimos nosotros o lo estas intentando colar.
