If you're ever planning a trip to Barcelona, you must sample the delights of Cava, Catalonia's own take on France's Champagne. El Xampanyet is considered by many to be the best Xampanyeria (Champagne bar) in the city and the Barcelonese pack this place on the weekends before hitting the clubs. The house Cava, served in litre bottles is a bubbly well worth indulging in. And don't you dare go anywhere until you've sampled the mind blowing tapas! Wow! Some of the best food I have ever had. The goat cheese red peppers where mouthwatering and the dessert was a perfect compliment to such a great meal. It doesn't look like much, but trust me it's the right amount to fill you up and not out. Such a great atmosphere and friendly staff. The colourful ceramic tiles are very much in keeping with Barcelona's Modernisme movement, Find it by the Picasso Museum.
