Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had breakfast here 3 out of 5 mornings. Perhaps we should have branched out and tried other places too but we came here on day 1 and really enjoyed it so we just kept coming back. Besides they changed the food every morning so there were always different things to try. The only thing we had more than once was the cigali (chickpeas and blood sausage) which is their signature dish so they serve it every day. The prawn omelette was my favourite but I remember the spinach omelette also being very nice. There was always a big pot of meat stew on the go. One day it was braised beef cheeks and another day it was oxtail stew. Both were good and came with tomato-rubbed bread to mop it up. There isn’t a menu – it’s not that sort of place. The waiters just let you know what’s available. There was a bit of a language barrier but for the most part, we relied on asking the waiters what was going that morning and simply saying ‘yes’, then waiting to see what turned up. Or we looked at what others had and pointed to those. Despite our hopelessly inadequate language skills, the waiters were helpful and friendly, especially once they recognised us on the second (and third) mornings. It was all good fun. Seating is on stools along the counter, where the food is cooked up in front of you. A space at the bar is highly prized and you might have to wait for a spot to become available. Pinotxo opens very early and I think we were normally there by 8-ish which was early enough to get a seat. Once you are seated, service is fast but once you are finished, it’s good form to move on rather than linger.

Fantastic little place on a great food market. Old batman seems to have been there forever. Fresh tasty food cooked quickly to order. Locals standing two deep, so you’ll have to squeeze in. Prawns, langoustines, octopus, chickpeas and sausage all delicious. Also fresh orange juice, although the locals seem to just guzzle cava! Cash only (like many places in the market). If it’s too busy there’s plenty of other places to try, so just go along.

It is very well known among locals and visiting foodies alike. We went early morning so we were able to get a seat at the bar easily. We came for the Cigrons (Chickpeas) because this is their famous dish and they were delicious but we also saw some locals eating Cap i Pota which looked really good. So we came back the next day and ordered that. We absolutely loved it! One of the highlights of our European Trip. Also, the staff were really friendly and we even got to take a selfie with the famous Senhor Juanito. It is definitely one of our more memorable meals.

We came here for lunch. We weren’t sure what to order as part of our group was vegetarian and we didn’t see any descriptions on the menu. Our server was very accommodating and we ordered all the vegetarian suggestions he gave us. My favorite item was the lightly friend zucchini which came with a side sauce. It was so good we ordered it a second time. The meat-eaters in the group also had the garbanzo beans (which contained sausage) and they said it was amazing.

We were lucky to find 2 opens seats around noon time and had the pleasure of being served by the famous Juanito. We just asked for tapes and he delivered 2 wonderful dishes (both featuring garbanzo beans perfectly seasoned). A bit pricey after experiencing the free tapas of Granada, but well worth it. I wish we stayed for a couple more, but we decided to take in the rest of the market.

If you're near La Bouqeria Market in Barcelona, try to grab a stool at this very crowded (and rightly so) tapas spot. The garbanzo beans are simply the best and we had them 4 or 5 times because we kept craving them every day! The beef was candidly just okay and not worth the price, same with the shrimp, which was good but not great. There are so many kinds of tapas to try here, and outside of a few items that were just okay, Pinotxo is a great place to grab a few bite sand a beer...or two!

Resilience is something human beings have proven time and time again is one of our best traits. It was refreshing to visit after 12 years and see this family still hanging on and having a great time. The place continues to be popular as before. That only means patience is the name of the game to score a seat in this bar in the middle of the Boqueria market. We had an amazing arrayed of dishes including chick peas, baby squid, and beef cheek. This last one from what they told me is from an old family recipe. While they have a menu, no one ever follows it. Given they are located in the middle of the market they get the freshest ingredients that very day. Go with their recommendations and you will be more than fine. Don't miss out on the mussels if they have them. They are simply prepared but delicious. It was a reminder that it just takes good quality ingredients and not tons of them to achieve culinary greatness. If you want to take a picture with the family patriarch, he is on hand and more than a willing celebrity. You simply cannot go wrong. That feel of family running it is part of what ultimately will warm your heart after your stomach!

Pinotxo Bar in Mercat de Sant Antoni is as authentic as it gets for Catalan food in Barcelona. We were lucky to get a seat at the bar as the market is very crowded. They have an English menu; the service is fast and very friendly. We had the croquettes and the Galician octopus. Honestly, I could have sat here eating all day. The Mercat de Sant Antoni is very interesting to take a walk through, with an absolutely unbelievable selection of food. Barcelona Tips: Barcelona is a safe city, but scammers and pickpockets come out in numbers in the really crowded, touristy areas. Do not get scammed, and protect your belongings! There are many online videos detailing some of the ways pickpockets try to steal from you, and how to thwart them. The Barcelona metro is easy to use, but if you are disabled or cannot do lots of walking, the bus is a better option. Some of the halls between train lines in the Barcelona metro are INSANELY long. In places you might walk nearly a half-mile to get your connection. If you plan your day and check the metro routes online beforehand, you might find it shorter to go above ground and walk to the next place. If you are headed to Barcelona airport and are physically impaired or disabled, take the airport bus from Sants Station instead of the train. The train is convenient if you can easily do the very long walk from where you disembark at the airport to the check-in counters.

Baby squid with beans was one of the best and delicious dishes of my entire life. It was super tasty. It was such tasty that I do not want to mention the rest. It made the other things we ate seem ordinary. It was that good :) Thanks to Mr. Juanito (he doesn't speak a word in English so it was hard to communicate or he just didn't like us, I don't know:))

Saw this cute bar-cafe on Rick Steves travel channel. It was just as good in “real life” as on TV. Very busy but worth the wait to grab a seat. Lots of friendly customers - we meet a lady from Japan. Service was fast and food was delicious. The market was filled with fresh fruit, fish and meat vendors. They sell small samples - try ‘em!! I’d love to go again.

Bar Pinotxo was one of the most delicious places we ate at in Barcelona! We went for breakfast, and had the Xuxos! This is a must have at this location. Cream filled sweet pastries that are great with Cafe con Leche. We also had the croquetas and a Tortilla de Calabazina (zucchini) which was savory and delicious. Would come back here again and again! Juanito is a local legend and did not disappoint.

Right at the front of one of the best markets in the world you’ll find this legendary tapas bar. If you find a seat free grab it! You’ll pay a bit more, but it’s worth it. Not only for the excellent market sourced ingredients, but also the fantastic service and atmosphere.

My family and I were in Barcelona for Christmas vacation. We booked a hotel on the famous La Ramblas street and decided to enjoy the beautiful city. We read about Pinotxo and the wonderful experience people raved about. So on 23 Dec we decided to wake up early and make our way there. We were lucky enough to arrive as a couple were leaving, so we jumped on the stools and tried greeting the server behind the counter. He completely ignored us and went on acting busy. My wife attempted again to say hello, nothing, not even a look at our direction. We have our seven years old daughter witnessing this. We obviously weren't welcome, so we decided to get up and walk away. It was the best decision because it led us to an amazing discovery of a wonderful restaurant, Citizen Cafe.

This was one of the most recommended bars in a lot of vlogs and did not disappoint! Great food! Fair price and good service. Their Shrimp, Beef Cheeks, chickpeas and scallops is a must try! They also only serve one beer which is fine as its a good one! This was our first stop in Barcelona and was the benchmark of everything else. Will definitely come back!

Neat little countertop bar/restaurant in the market (La Boqueria) off La Rambla in Barcelona. Right inside the main entrance. Have the omelette and coffee with milk for breakfast and top it off with an awesome pastry. Well worth the visit. Run by an old man and his family for years. Good and colorful.

El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
