This is a fantastic little restaurant with an unseen amount of charm and atmosphere. The staff is cheerful and wants you to have a great time at aQuistoi.. which you will because the food is tasty and inexpensive and the house wine is good!

Friendly staff (though he didn't speak much English). Tapas are mixed: some good, others quite bland. None excellent. Don't particularly recommend the place, though it's OK.

This restaurant is one of the places you go and never forget. The empanadas are positively incredible, the sangria some of the very best I've ever experienced, the staff is friendly and welcoming, like a family run business is...it's a small place so not a lot of tables, but I would encourage you to try it, a real star of...

Perfect sangria to accompany our delightful food, my boyfriend had some of the best nachos he ever had, and I had patatas bravas and guacamole, also very good. The bartenders were very helpful and fun! would visit again

My daughter and I came here for two brunches and an evening meal while on a short break to Barcelona. All the reviews are spot on! The restaurant is tiny, only a few tables, a good bar, a very warm welcome, and fresh, fresh, fresh food lovingly prepared. We tried the tortilla which is served with fresh bread spread with...

aQistoi is a very small restaurant/bar that you mostly visit because it is cosy, friendly and good value. There are only three or four tables in the restaurant, but that just adds to the familiar feeling. Food is mainly tapas style, not the best in town but really good value. aQistoi is not an expensive place, which is also one... More

Good variety of food, decent prices. Everything is just tasty there, I couldn't stop eating. Especially the empanadas and the chicken fingers are highly recommendable and the staff is very friendly. Definitely coming back!

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
Eixample
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.
