Many people reckon this the best tapa bar in Barcelona. It is tucked away near the sea-front and is a simple, small place wth bar stools, with a little dining room at the back with tables and a long queue of people waiting to eat. There was no menu offered: things just arrived. A dish of peas with prawns, artichokes and broad beans was excellent, with nicely cooked prawns and very high quality peas that had lovely flavour (15/20). Pieces of beef fillet were cooked simply with slices of fried potatoes, and tasted fine (14/20). Chicken croquettes had a crisp outside batter if rather limited chicken taste (13/20) while the only relatively dull dish was some toasted bread made with tomatoes, garlic and olive oil; this was a little cold (11/20). Best was a simply cooked dish of monkfish that was beautifully timed and very fresh; this is a fish that is easy to mess up, and here it was very fine indeed (16/20).
The long queue of locals tells you all you need to know.
