Xampanyet - Authentic tapas in a family owned bar
It is hard to find a more authentic tapas bar in the Old Town than this one. Founded in 1929, now the 4th generation of the same family is starting to take over bringing a happy freshness to the always busy but still smiling staff. When I take people here on my tapas tours (and when I come with friends!), their mini-peppers stuffed with goat cheese are never missing in my order. They also have plates of awesome Spanish ham and cheese, and the codfish and salmon dices are delicious. There's also tuna, anchovies, sardines, baked potatoes and Spanish omelette. And make sure to try the xampanyet (literally "little champagne"), the specialty of the house (the bar is called after it!). It's a tasty young sparkling wine fun to drink but without pretensions.
