Plaça de les olls 8
From the Lonely Planet Website:
"This boisterous tapas bar brims with energy and personality, thanks largely to Pep, the owner and chef, who keeps his customers amused with a constant stream of banter while he grills the sensational seafood tapas for which this restaurant is famous. A meal here is one of the joys of a trip to Barcelona.
From the Schmap Barcelona Guide (where this photo features):
"Pep Manubens, the owner, greets customers from behind the bar, where he deliughts them with amazing fish and seafood dishes taht are very well presented. Simple dishes, cooked there and then in front of the customer. There are also more elaborate dishes, such as the beef stew. When ordering a drink, it is best to ask for Pep's recommendation. The wine list is vast and the choice goes from famous labels to original vintage wines. There are not many tables to eat at but the real pleasure is trying the food at the bar. Well-managed restaurant, with friendly service."
