Wow! What a place to enjoy tapas! We got there near 7 p.m. and grabbed one of the 2 tables, otherwise you are standing at the bar. How convenient to sit and the waiters come to your table with fresh hot tapas of this kind and the other! We really enjoyed the delicious tapas and the friendly service!!

Loved this tapas bar. All the cold tapas are self service and the hot ones come right from the kitchen and are passed until gone. You pay by the number of toothpicks on your plate so all the majors are the same price. Good beer, good wine, good looking staff, friendly. And the food. Oh the food. We ate here twice in only 4 days. Part of us wanted to experience all the great tapas places we had read about, but we werent willing to risk not having as great of a meal or time as we did here. We met lovely people next to us and talked about everything under the sun. This is a real local place not to be missed. I am still dreaming about their food.

Excellent place were you can have a long evening enjoy the collinary experience of this beautiful city.
You will pick your own tapas by yourself. Each of the small ones are 1.6 Euro and worth every cent. The atmosphere and the service are great.
During the evening the hot tapas are served by the waiters and you can pick them to your plate.
You should come until 8:30pm , otherwise you won't have a place on the main bar (you could stand near the rear bar)

We went to this restaurant for dinner after reading reviews.

The food here was OK, nothing special. If you like in the area of are close to it, it's worth going.
However, if you are looking for a good tapas experience, it can just as well be found somewhere else.

We took the metro from the gothic area up to L'eixample just to get there... it wasn't really worth all the trouble.

(Bilbao is better)

We visited on a weeknight. It was moderately crowded. The tapas were amazing. The staff was very friendly. The drinks were good. Prices were reasonable. Highly recommend!
