One of my favorite bars in Barcelona. I only get to go there when I have visitors and I take them to Calle Moncada, the Picasso museum and Santa Maria del Mar. But I always enjoy the beer and the tapas.

This place was great but we knew going in that we would have to fight for a spot to stand/eat/drink. Food was outstanding, specifically the octopus and we felt that this is about traditional as it gets for tapas.

You can't miss this place, is an authentic local tapas restaurant, the experience is unique!! Food are absolutely delicious, try the "pimentones rellenos de queso" and "the tortilla española" are amazing!

Someone once said, a Catalonian, that to have fun you must get into a place, make a mess. That doesn't mean you're sloppy. It means you bump into people, crowd around a table, and share fantastic food with good friends in a loud, boisterous place....More

Best tip we got from Jarrod, our guide in the Barrio Gottico walking tour! We came back for a second time, and also ordered food to go, for our last evening in Barcelona. At first glance the place seems chaotic, with people standing, waiters shouting...More

The calamari was good .Even the cod fish was nice. The potato was also good .To be paired with the Cava wine, it's excellent. Waiters are very accommodating?

El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
places that live and breathe such exciting energy
regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants

Response from Vikavei | Reviewed this property |
I don't think that they take reservations. It's more of a first come first served situation. I would strongly recommend to go earlier before they open especially if it's a larger group of people.
Will be in Barcelona the second week of May and want to know when the best day/ time to eat here with the shortest wait time.
