Chef-owner Rafa Peña applies the skills he honed in the world's most celebrated kitchens in this phenomenally good-value restaurant and its adjacent wine-tapas bar. He cranks out inventive dishes based on humble ingredients to a fervently loyal customer base of local foodies. Expect a well-chosen wine list and some of the most delightful dishes you can find in Barcelona. The tasting menu is the best way to sample what's on offer—forget about choosing and just sit back and enjoy the ride, or ask for a seat at the bar of the open kitchen and hit the best of the day's tapas dishes.
