This comfortable beer hall, close to La Rambla de Catalunya and decorated in dark shades and varnished wood, is noteworthy for its Montaditos (small pieces of bread with tapas on top), and their Ensaladilla (like potato salad but better), which decorate the bar behind the glass. Their assorted menu of beers - domestic and imported - is also worth a mention. The service is excellent, and the staff, cordial and efficient. They also have a terrace you can enjoy all year round.
The place is too crowd at night, but the waiting is worthed.
I recomend to start waiting in line to a table, asking for a Clarita (a especial tipical beer drink with lemon), and when you drink a couple, you can try the tapas in this order for an amazing experience (just like mine when i went there):
- Pan con tomateq (Tomato Bread)
- Ensaladilla (Potato salad with mayonaise)
- Brochetas de langostino (grill shrimp)
- Solomillo (Meat)
- Patatas Bravas (Potato with special tomato sauce)
You never regret... mmm so delicious!
We ordered claws and rose chrimps (the items where on the "daily specials" list) for 9,90 and 8,50 euro's. (about 12 and 10 USD).
We got exactly 8 naked claws and 8 naked shrimps on a small plate, together with a tiny little piece of lemon.
Even not the smallest piece of bread or salad, nothing.
I wonder how a restaurant dares to put such items on a menu card at such prices.
Needless to say that we were very dissapointed ?
There is a real buzz about this tapas bar, every night and lunchtime we went we had to wait around half an hour for a seat but was always well worth it!!! Even waiting having a drink is an experience.
The food especially the little tapas is amazing and all the freshest ingredients and staff extremely efficient and nice!!
Cant wait to go back!!!!!
I have eaten at the tapas bar several times and except for the sometimes long waiting line, everythings is great! While waiting for your table order a rose wine at the bar and you'll be (positively) surprised by the price AND quality! Try the brochetas de gambas, the pimientos con atun, patatas bravas, the mushrooms salteadas, order some tomato bread, and especially do NOT forget to order the crema catalana or the whiskey cake as a dessert!! Definitely worth the calories!!!! For 30 Euros you have a complete diner including wine for 2 people!!!
