A rare pearl among our careful selection of the best addresses right now

Irati (Grupo Sagardi) introdujo la cultura del pintxo donostiarra en Barcelona. De la mano de los cocineros Iñaki y Mikel Lz de Viñaspre, se ha convertido en lugar de peregrinación para los amantes de la auténtica cocina vasca en la Ciudad Condal. Aquí vienes a disfrutar con amigos y a explorar esa descomunal barra de pintxos que te ofrece lo mejor del País Vasco en miniatura. Si te apetece algo más relajado, puedes optar por el formato de mesa y mantel. En este espacio te espera una carta corta y sencilla con platos muy aplaudidos por la clientela como el chuletón de vaca vieja o el tartar de atún rojo de almadraba de Barbate y guindilla de Ibarra. Mmmm…


En temporada no hay que perderse las alcachofas de Tudela ni las alubias de Tolosa. ¡Estás avisado!

    The service there was the best I've had in Barcelona. It was a great meal -- I love how they let you have the pintxos to start, and then you can sit down for your main course afterwards. Also, the wine selection is very impressive, and it's not some over priced tourist trap -- everything there is fair value. Really impressed, and that's coming from a local!

    Recommended by a friend a few years ago, decided to try on a Sunday (yes! They’re open) evening. Our waiter was so informed and helpful in our ordering. The food - spectacular! Try the aged beef - and the..... oh, try everything it’s all delicious.

    Definitely an excellent address! We opted for the restaurant, but the tapas at the bar also looked delicious!

    We booked in for a meal at 7pm this week. We cannot fault the service the tidy restaurant, and the starters were very goog, we had a salad and local sausage . For the main course we had what we thought was a beef steak. You buy this by weight per 100g. We were advised it was large so we shared this but we were not asked how we liked this cooked ? It actually was like a big t bone and on the bone. It had only been cooked for for a Minuit or two at best it was rare and in places raw and slimy . I feel we shd have been asked how we wanted it cooked. Hence our low score.

    Excellent food and service. The waiter was amazing. Highly recommended. We did the a la carte menu/sitting in the back of the restaurant, not the tapas.

    Very cosy tapas bar. Nost of the tapas were delicious. Maybe beer could be 0,5l. I think big one was only 0,4l but I guess it is like this in Spain.

    IRATI is a hidden treasure in the middle of La Rambla. The best part of the restaurant is the unbelievable service and friendliness of the staff. The food was delicious and note that reservations are accepted for the dining area in the back of the restaurant. Quiet, clean, and roomy!

    What a great dining experience! We ate in the sit-down section of the restaurant, not the tapas bar. As typical Americans, we were seated at 7:00, so the restaurant area was uncrowded. Oihana, who appeared to be the manager, guided us through the menu. To start, we were served tasty Basque sausages with a rustic bread. Oihana recommended a Rioja which was reasonably priced and excellent! Due to a little language confusion, we ended up getting more than we could eat—wonderful, farm fresh tomatoes, sautéed mushrooms with an “egg sauce,” and lettuce salad in addition to the main course. Husband had duck with figs. Pertfectly cooked duck and the figs were yummy. I had San Sebastián style fish stew. I enjoyed the clams and fish, but the broth was a bit too fishy for my taste. On the menu is aged beef which you can order in 100 gm (3 Oz) portions. A fun place to eat. The staff is engaged and liking serving you!
