This is not the typical tapas joint for tourists – it is so not it, that they don’t open on Sundays! They cater mostly to people that work around the Eixample area and are looking for a nice combination of good price and excellent food. From breakfast to late dinner.
The name of the restaurant – Flauta: Flute – comes from the small sandwiches they make with very fresh bread, not too big, which allows you to taste more than one. But they also have all kinds of salads and a great variety of fresh tapas, according to what is available in the market.
La Flauta can take groups at a comfortable area upstairs, but a booking should be made in advance: be especially careful during holiday season. Also, expect it to be a little bit loud. Many people also just stay in the bar for a quick bite and a fresh glass of beer – or caña. It’s also a classic for people working in the area, since the mid day menu on weekdays is reasonably priced (around € 12) and really worth the trip.
One very important thing for tourists: their kitchen is open all day long, so you can have an early dinner or late lunch. However, if you get in around 21:00 at night be prepared to wait at the bar – but the wait is worth it. It’s also a nice spot for breakfast.
