El Xampanyet was named after the sparkling white wine that is still jovially served at this charming tapas bar. Run by the same family since 1921, El Xampanyet is currently well into its third generation. The decor is suitably old-fashioned, with countless decorative tiles and antique trinkets completing the traditional experience found here.
El Xampanyet’s tapas are typically Catalan, consisting of staples such as seafood and olives. The house special is a plate of fresh Cantabrian anchovies. The lively atmosphere attracts more than just the local tapas devotees, as plenty of young people turn up in the evening for a pre-club cava or draft beer.
