Cheap, Cheerful & Charming

A cheap, cheerful and charming place in the heart of the Eixample Esquerra is Maitea, a Basque Tavern located on C/Casanova.

Un lugar barato, alegre y con encanto en el corazón del Eixample Esquerra es Maitea, una taberna vasca situada en C / Casanova.


Good honest food in an authentic environment, maitea offers their diners a selection of Pinxos as well as a menu of fish, meats, salads, wine and desserts.

Comida  muy buena en un ambiente auténtico, Maitea ofrece una grande selección de Pinxos, así como una carta de pescados, carnes, ensaladas, vinos y postres.


On our last visit we chose from their wide offering of pinxos – traditional combinations of Piquillo Peppers stuffed with crab meat or Potato Omellete with a tuna mayonaise centre. All absolutely delicious!  We even managed to sneak in a not-so-basque dessert which went down a treat!

A great place for a chilled out dinner with friends or family at an affordable price!

En nuestra última visita optamos por su amplia oferta de pinxos – combinaciones tradicionales de Pimientos del Piquillo rellenos de cangrejo o tortilla de patata con atún. Todo absolutamente delicioso! Incluso nos las arreglamos para colar un postre no tan vasco…

Un gran lugar para una cena relajante con amigos o familiares a un precio asequible!
