I went for their famous bravas, It was Ok but certainly not the best I've had in the city. The food was average but nothing memorable at all.

Great local bustling, vibrant cafe. Really fast service. Good food. Just be aware it shuts at 10pm. Doesn't accept credit / debit cards.

You will place 2 orders. At least. You will want to sample everything. You should. You will eat with toothpicks. You need to get there early. With cash.

A hidden gem that we stumbled upon. Great tapas and potatas bravas. Friendly waitstaff. Very local spot and a beautiful charming queen part of Barcelona, away from tourists. Very generous with the wine and extremely reasonably priced at $1.55 euro per glass. Don't speak very good English but it adds to the charm of the local restaurant. Off the beaten... More

The service was very very good. The potatoes were truly amazing. We read that they would be the best in Barcelona, I think it was pretty darn close. It's a small dive with exceptional food and very good service! I think it's definitely worth visiting.

We had read about this place in all of the "Bravas" lists citing it as the best so we decided to take a trip and test them out. Maybe our expectations were too high or maybe we don't understand local culture but all three of us thought the bravas were a bit dissapointing. The bravas were a bit soggy ,... More

Regulars and tourists meet at this old fashioned bar with the best Patatas Bravas in Barcelona, no doubt. Take a seat, order a caña, patatas bravas and enjoy it! (although there is much more...and everything is good)

We came here due to the 4 stars on trip advisor. Out of the 5 or 6 people working there, only 1 was apparently working. I guess this is the reason why we had to wait for 10 minutes between the moment we sat down and the moment we could order. Regarding the food itself, the beer was cold, the... More

For sure one of the things to do due to the Patatas Bravas. Very noisy, crowded place, but super economic and one of the cheapest places in Barcelona located in a very local part in Barcelona.
