Lovely little place in the Raval. Simple yet impressive menu which offers small plates ideal for sharing. Service is very intimate and authentic. Excellent value for money and cannot rate the food highly enough. Will be on the list of places to keep going back...More

Great tapas! Small portions for 4.5€, but the food would not have been out of place in a fine dining establishment. Got the friendly bar tender to recommend a wine and was not disappointed. Also has free WiFi. Surprised it was so empty! They also...More

The concept of the restaurant is very interesting: small plates to share or not for a limited price. We were 6 and we were able to try most of the dishes in the menu. When you go you have to try the Risotto and the...More

The restaurant is small but even if you have to wait to get a table, it'll be worth your while. We were three and shared different tapas (different plates in small servings). We fell particularly in love with the squid canelon: the filling, the sauce,...More

Great little tapas bar with the best staff! We reserved a table for 13 people for a friend's hen party and they produced a menu especially for us. We even had to choose a cake beforehand, which they then baked especially for us. Amazing!

They have the classic tapas presentation : all at the same price, but very unusual food. All delicious, especially the raviolis! With the chutney apple on top... Just loved it. Totally would recommend.

Tapas, but different. I don't think the menu had any traditional tapas, but rather small portions of interesting food. Opens at around 8 pm.

Each dish is 4,50€, compared to other places in that area, they serve very extraordinary dishes, e.g. Cuttle fish carpaccio with celery icecream or cod fish with Roquefort cheese, but very, very good.

Just walking back to our hotel we stumbled across this little gem of a place. We looked at the menu and everything said 4€ which we thought no, so we trip advised it and saw that it was tapas for 4€. So we thought we...More

The specialty of this restaurant is to offer many different tapas and each of them at a price of 4€. The plates are pretty small, but defenitely among the best tapas I've ever eaten. It's no place to eat a lot but rather to enjoy...More

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

Only tapas. But can be shared by 2. The beet salmorejo is a good portion size as is the risotto, ravioli, carpaccio and the desserts. Not huge but pretty decent size considering they are tapas. And even more based on the... More
