A benchmark and an institution in the Catalan capital, this modest tapas bar is a friendly and welcoming place with endless charm.
Open for more than 100 years, it is packed from morning to night. This small neighbourhood restaurant has rustic decor and very few tables, and some of the city's most creative and surprising cuisine, all at very affordable prices.
Its succulent and subtly toasted montaditos are topped with top-quality Spanish ingredients, in flavour combinations that never cease to surprise. The ingredients cheese, foie gras, fish, and meat are simple but very effective. Pair your meal with some of the greatest wines available: hundreds of different bottles are arranged around you, for immediate enjoyment (in moderation of course) or to go. A golden address that is probably one of the most compelling in the city.
