Words alone can’t describe this gem of a tapas bar. It’s a must for anybody visiting Barcelona. I had anchovies and pepper purée with a nice drizzle of olive oil on a perfect price of toast. It’s the the total experience that makes this 5 Star. Beautiful wine bar, the history, the excellent service and great tapas.

We were overjoyed to discover this Tapas Bar was minutes from our hotel. All the rave reviews are well deserved. It is the most authentic and friendly venue serving up delicious Montaditos (tapas on crusty bread). Choose from Mussels, Anchovies, Caviar, Artichoke, Olives, Tomatoes Cheeses, Foie Grais, etc...etc. The atmosphere is wonderful, with everyone enjoying the food as quick as the staff can make it, which it has to be said is a wonder to behold. We were so pleased we set up shop in front of the bar rather than to the back as we witnessed the speed and elegance employed to prepare the tasty morsels. The bar is stacked floor to ceiling with wine, spirts, liqueurs and tinned fish. We were so well looked after, made welcome and provided such good food and wine suggestions. Would go back in a heart beat. Yes it's very small and busy, but this part of the appeal and experience, just get there early.

Wow, this is a tiny establishment that puts out a wide variety of tasty specialties. There are very few standing tables. If you get there right after it opens, the tables are likely to be filled and it will feel crowded. If you wait 45 minutes, the initial crowd will lean out and you will likely be able to find a place no problem. All of the dishes we had were bursting with flavor. If you can, don't miss this.

I have been there a couple of times before - now back with the family. I love it. Very cramped and a good local atmosphere (many tourists, though). Good tapas - mostly out of tins/cans. Good wine. Not to miss. 20 minutes walk from the city centre.

Wow!!

Sooooooo nice. I would highly recommend this place if you want to experience really good tapas, it was just so yummy.

The service was fantastic, the food delicious and the wine was wonderful.

I would suggest you try the salmon, yoghurt and truffle honey sandwich (it's not really a sandwich but see my pic to give you an idea), it was so delicious I ordered another.

Really reasonable at €38 which was 7 dishes and 2 glasses of red wine.
