Food is absolutely delicious, much variety. I liked all of the "pintxos" I tasted. It is not pricey at all, and atmosphere is good enough. I definitely recommend this place to go out with friends.

Tired from a big day of walking it was such a relief to find a great restaurant so close to our accomodation (they are all mostly down near the beach). Upon arriving we were given a menu in English and told all pinchos are €1.70, the counter pinchos are 'help yourself' and the hot pinchos you order with the waitstaff.... More

Los pinchos were delicious, we tried as many as we could. The place is nicely decorated and the saff was very friendly. The serving is different, because if it's crowded the waiter comes at your table with the plate and you have to choose witch pinchos you wanna try. When I come back to Barcelona I will definitely go to... More

I came here for dinner on a Saturday, and it was great! First of all, venue was packed, and it seemed like a lot of guests were locals - always a good sign. In fact, this venue had been recommended to me by a friend who has been living in Barcelona for 10 years. We had booked for 9pm, but... More

Managed to get a seat at the bar straight away (a night when Barca were playing!) and pretty much worked our way through the menu. Really tasty, made to order, good service... One of the better places of this type in Barcelona.

I've been coming to this place for 6 years and it's without a doubt my favorite PINTXOS place in Barcelona. Great variety of cold and hot, and the steak is also amazing. Best prices in BCN since it's not in the center. I bring all my guests here for a great meal.

Take your pick: you can choose between tapas at the bar or eat at the taberna. Basque kitchen. Traditional fare. Great service.

A quick cab ride from anywhere in the city, this tapas bar and restaurant are a treasure. Small plates are each excellent and a couple of them are spectacular. And they are inexpensive. Close to a major hospital, Maitea is a favorite lunch spot for medical staff. But after 7 the dinner service is excellent and uncrowded. Deserves a better... More

Visited yesterday at 9pm, we tried 20!! Tapas between us both. The Crab was great so we're the hot tapas, well everything was good. Friendly staff and happy to explain what everything was in English to us. We sat at the bar and helped ourselves, probably the best way to eat in here. May come back before we go home!

This place gets really busy. Take a stool at the bar and then just either help yourself to cold pintxos or have some hot from the kitchen... loved the foie gras and fig, hot chorizo, mini burger and wine very nice too... pay by the number of sticks from the pintxos, well worth a visit.

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
