El Timbal is a cozy and friendly bar in the heart of Poblenou, which would be nothing special if it was not for two things. First, the space El Timbal occupies is incredibly sunny, as the building that it occupies is very wide, but not very deep, allowing for windows on both sides. Second, and the most important, is that El Timbal makes arguably one of the best patatas bravas in Barcelona, "arguably" because it's impossible to know for sure unless you tried every variation of this typical Catalan tapas in every small bar in Barcelona. The truth is that in El Timbal potato wedges with spicy mayonnaise are most excellent, other food is tasty and cheap, and the service is friendly as well. Thumbs up!
