This terrific little restaurant is very Spanish and wonderful for sharing small plates and tastings with friends or as a couple. In nice weather you can sit outside too.

So we wanted some tapas and waited at the table for ~ 30 minutes and no love.. the Asst waiter dropped pan and oil. But the waiter never showed.. may have been awesome. I guess we'll never know. :(

"Tapas" mean appetizers, so this place has many good selections of appetizers you can share. Very delicious! The staff are very polite and friendly.

This restaurant is a tapas restaurant in the spanish tradition. Tapas are small dishes that are share, very topical in Spain. At Tapas Barcelona you can experience that, a good wine is a must!! Also the paella is very good.

No. But what age child? Have you gone to their website? They have a full menu on it. Except when our children were infants, we never had a problem finding something on an 'adult' menu that they could eat. So I suggest you... More
