Description: Maritime inspired in concept and design, Golfo de Bizkaia is an intimate space, very informal, which is divided into two parts. A space dedicated to the bar of tapas and another place to taste typical dishes of Euskadi, but in casserole format. Near the church of Santa Maria del Mar and a few meters from the Paseo del Borne.

We stopped in for a light dinner on our first night in Barcelona. This street was recommended to us by our hotel staff as THE place to eat in the neighborhood without the high prices of La Rambla. What a pleasant way to start our trip! The pintxos were varied and freshly prepared. Our wait person recommended the fresh artichokes that were only available on occasion. They were delicious. Try them if available. They specially prepared pan e tomate, not necessarily on the menu that night, but something I had been looking forward to for some time. So, upon request, they made it. Fresh and crunchy, a true Catalan specialty. The hit of the night was a free bite of fresh mushrooms in a wine sauce that were served in a tiny pastry dough "cup." So good! Very friendly staff, busy with lots of locals. Highly recommended.

I had a lovely glass of wine and some pintxos which were very tasty but I was hurried out by the female waitress who whisked my plate ( plus sticks ) away. I went elsewhere for another glass of wine!
I would not bother returning.

This tapas restaurant was the closest to our hotel and recommended by the concierge. We received a warm welcome speedy service and enjoyed a lovely tas meal. The waiter was on hand to help with our selection and we were able to try a dish or two that were not on the set menu. I’d highly recommend Golfo de Bizkaia .

We stumbled on this small tapas bar in one of the side-streets of the old town by accident, and we totally loved the place - so much so, that we came back the next day for even more of the delicious tapas/ pintxos (slices of baguette with different toppings). The ambience in the bar is superb: it's really quiet and has an authentic feel to it; also, it's a nice change to the hustle and bustle of other parts of town. Particularly during the afternoon it's a great place to have a little snack, a glass of their delicious cava, and to simply enjoy the moment. The huge variety pintxos from which you can choose is freshly prepared, and re-stocked regularly. Definitely highly recommended for everyone who likes to leave the tourist trails of Barcelona, and have a memorable foodie-experience!

We had Tapas which is a similar eatery system like buffet. However it will be a new and exciting experience for people who are not from Spain.the variety of food was good also the style of bar-tendering was worth watching.
