Just off the Calle Mayor, a great tapas bar. Family run, warm welcome from everyone. Huge choice of beautiful dishes, all carefully explained and served at our table, really good value.. Lovely atmosphere, well worth seeking out.

My wife and I dropped by here with no real plans. We were hungry looking a bite for lunch. What we recieved was a warm friendly welcome and enjoyable meal without even the glance of a menu.

Ordered a drink and accepted the owner offering to just bring over different selections of tapas.

The food was excellent and just what we needed. A bit of this and a bit of that. It all went down well.

We can highly recommend. Do as we did, don't look at a menu. Just sit back and enjoy what comes.

So glad the other place we tried was fully booked.

Sometimes it's good not to plan.

Massive thumbs up

Thank Jon T

Twenty two of us visited El Barril on a self organised coach trip to traditional Tapas Bars in Cartagena. The experience we had at El Barril was fantastic, with the food and staff being exceptional. We were made to feel very welcome and the staff looked after us really well. We had some fun with the staff who showed us some of their medieval props.
