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.

This spot is perfect if you are looking for authentic and delicious mexican food and cocktails. After living in Mexico I always missed Micheladas in Europe and tried to find a good one with no luck. The one in Pachuco was the yummiest and most...authentic l found. We also ordered tacos de tinga and quesadillas de tinga and they were both amazing. Their aguas frescas were also really good, especially the horchata one. Would definitely visit again when in Barcelona - 10/10More

No booking system available, just turn up and see if you’re lucky enough to get a seat. Most seats are on stools at the bar, with only a couple of tables, so you may have to queue. Given a menu page and a pencil you...tick what you want to order. Scan the QR code for the drinks menu and write down what you want, then hand it in. When it’s ready they will call your name. Vegan and vegetarian dishes available, separately listed on the menu so you know what’s what. We had the nachos, bean tacos and quesadillas. All of which absolutely delicious! You can see the staff working their socks off to get the food out and the bar tender making wonderful creations right in front of you.More

The most amazing Mexican food! Note it is CASH only and I don’t think they take bookings. We managed to get a table and they use paper menus which you tick and name to call out the orders (available in EN). All the food was...made quickly whilst we drank our giant frozen cocktails! We ordered too much food as we weren’t sure how big the portions would be. Two of us struggled through the nachos, 4 tacos and quesadilla. The nachos would have sufficed! I love the atmosphere and vibe of the place. We arrived at around 9:30pm and it was buzzing, lots of people stopping by to see if there was any space. There’s also a lovely window seat to watch the world go by.More

The food is excellent, and the staff are generally very friendly. Except for one waitress who, when she's around, I'd rather not go in because she gives off such a bad vibe. And she's incompetent. She got my order wrong, even though it was written...down on a piece of paper. She makes us repeat the order several times. She takes away our glasses without finishing them. And worst of all, she refused to let a friend join us even though we'd told her to. She's unpleasant, condescending and vulgar.More

My husband and I didn’t completely agree about our experience here, but since I’m the one writing the review, I will give my opinion. I loved this place. It may not be ‘refined’ Mexican but it’s definitely Mexican. Great tacos and cocktails and a very...complete nacho dish. The place is small and full of atmosphere. Would come here again and again if I lived in Barcelona.More

Brilliant place! CASH ONLY. We came here and they had places available without waiting. We had the super nice chicken tacos and the super refreshing and strong micheladas (kind of strong Mexican beer/ Bloody Mary mix it tasted like IMO) The staff was friendly and...the food and drinks out of this world. We sat at the bar and saw many gorgeous looking cocktails made. The place is super cute and authentic. The wall is covered with Tequila bottles of all kinds and the service is super fast but not rushed. This is a place not to be missed.More

Little hidden gem on Carrer de Sant Pau - really tiny place, but every time went back past it was packed the the rafters. Managed to initially slip in during a quiet period, which just meant we got to enjoy the ambience - quick service,...authentic tastes and definitely goes down well with a bottle of Pacifico.More

that seem to light up the streets day and night. The
