El Cañota is a Galicia-inspired seafood tapas bar, and it comes with a pedigree. It serves traditional dishes: fried fish and seafood, 'patatas bravas', Galician octopus, 'ensaladilla rusa', wine and draught beer. All of it is top-quality, and served in a laid-back venue that's perfect for dinner after taking in a show at the Teatre Lliure, Mercat de les Flors or BTM musical theatre, which are all nearby.
