This spot has basic tapas and food choices that are plain and not up to the standard we're used to in Barcelona. More fried dishes, less fresh ingredients, poor presentation, and the service was less professional and friendly than usual. Too bad, because the setting has potential - a small, quaint courtyard with outdoor seating. Not an awful place, it... More

The food was tasteless, not fresh and very expensive. We ordered 7 different tapas dishes, but nothing tasted good. Later when we checked, we discovered that the restaurant had added 13 euro extra on the bill. Stay away from this place!!

Charming location and first look. It needs an update as much is worn out. Including some of the waiters who were brusque and not tourist friendly. Tapas were good but very high priced. Entrees not so good. Keep looking.

Terrible service, was told 'by by lady' when I questioned an additional and unnamed 5 euro charge on my bill. Food was nothing special either. DONT EAT HERE!!!

They overcharged us and the staff is very unfriendly. The prices are to high and. They even charge you for the place. One person wanted to sit alone, they didn't allow it, you need to be at least 2 persons. We never experienced that jn Barcelona before.

El Pi Antic is just off the Ramblas in a secluded courtyard. The manager/ owner was so helpful and charming. Our food was wonderful. We had such a lovely relaxing afternoon eating and drinking the most delicious Sangria. My friends said their seafood paella was outstanding. I had the vegetarian paella that was delicious. Would highly recommend this charming spot... More

I had made an online reservation at another restaurant but upon arriving there at 9:30 we found that it was closed on Monday. We remembered this area and thought that surely many restaurants would be open even at this hour. But we were wrong as most were closing down or simply turned us away. The El Pi Antic, on the...

The food was decent, but the service was awful. The staff had not intention of serving us or even being polite.

Four friends visited this restaurant last week, the owner/waiter was rude, terrible service and when we were eventually served the starters and the main courses were served at the same time !!! The result was cold food, also wrong food was served to one of us and returned. There was no replacement. It was disgusting all round.

Staying at the el Jardi hotel, which is located at the Placa de Sant Josep Oriol also, my gf and me decided to have a glass of wine with some tapas here. Actually we wanted to sit outside but all tables were occupied. So we were offered a nice table inside. This was a blessing since the El Pi Antic... More
