I was advised to call here following the opinion of a published guide. And yet, I was glad I did. The anchovies with tomato bread combo was super! The atmosphere is buzzin. The staff are on the ball, especially the attentive service we had from...Lhei, the guy I thought was Nepalese as he reminded me of a ghurka. I'm glad I visited here and would love to return if I'm still in Barca.More

This place was right opposite a great little tapas bar we love. Since we see massive crowds always at this tapas bar we decided to try it. The bar staff are full on pushy and the crowd is mostly young uni types from our observations....After waiting some time for service we were handed two of everything we ordered one of and the bill reflected that. Our experience was short lived and we came away unimpressed.More

Great atmosphere, tasty tasty dishes and fantastic engaged servers (if a tad forgetful as so busy and they write nothing down seemingly so the odd thing needed asking for twice). Well worth calling in here though, feels the real deal in spite of lots of...non locals.More

Brilliant place. Lively atmosphere. traditional tapas and house cava. Cava costs 10 euros a bottle.We were a party of 4 and tried many dishes. Pork with padron perrers amazingly tender. Chickpeas fried with chorizo fabulous (and i am not even keen on chickpeas) Everything we...had was great. You need to que to get into this restaurant so get there early. Very popular and great value for money. One of the best meals we ad in BarcelonaMore

This was not our first visit and won’t be our last. As ever, the whole experience was stunning - from the friendliness and service to the cava and tapas! We would always recommend the pan con tomate and the manchego though the tortilla and chick...peas were especially incredible! Do visit, if you have never been - or go again if you’ve been before!More

Delicious tapas - you must try the sausage with puréed celeriac, the staff are INCREDIBLE and so friendly, even when our Spanish was awful they were so lovely. Great atmosphere and delicious house cava

Such a unique place! Felt very authentic Spanish- crowded with people (standing room only), and fabulous sparkling wine + tapas. The amount of food + drink we had for 20 euros is incredible. Would definitely recommend. Also, a great stop for “drinks and apps” before...a nicer dinner. We will be back!More

El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
places that live and breathe such exciting energy
regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants

It's really small place and really hard to find a place to sit. Most of the people are standing. However I saw couples or friend groups there. If you go early you might find a place.

I don't think that they take reservations. It's more of a first come first served situation. I would strongly recommend to go earlier before they open especially if it's a larger group of people.
