We chose this restaurant as it had a good TripAdvisor rating, was in an interesting part of town, and we could book on line. The service was charming, engaging and super friendly. The food was excellent. The two adults adored our meals, and our fussy children also cleared their plates. The menu was short but flavoursome. I plan to go... More

We had dinner and took the tasting menu: 7 dishes, all excellent. You can't choose them and have to let the chef decide, but none of them was below our expectations. Furthermore, you can see the chefs prepare the food in front of you. But the most surprising was the price: it's one the best value for money we've ever... More

We found this restaurant by recommendation of a Barcelona guidebook and really anticipated our meal here. The menu changes daily, and the options are limited to just a couple choices based on what the chef is preparing that day. The meal was quite expensive and we just found the food to be so-so, especially for the price. We were not... More

we were booked into a restaurant on the recommendation of our hotel, once we read the reviews we decided to cancel our booking and we found this little gem. Locally sourced food, chefs with passion, you can watch them prepare the food. The waiting staff were so helpful and explained how the food was prepared. I had the most delicious... More

We ate there last night (16.10.14). The staff were friendly but vague. My wife started with mussels which were fresh but were spoilt by a bottled salad dressing. I had grilled octopus with fresh avocado sauce which was very good. She then had sea bass and salad where good taste was spoilt by being served on a very cold plate.... More

We found the place by coincidence, looked it up on TripAdvisor and waited for the place to open. First of all, the place is very cosy and we felt welcome. We chose the degustation menu and at 44€ it is an absolute steal! Seven wonderfully prepared and well presented courses. We cannot recommend this enough at that price. The kitchen... More

Went here on the last night of our holidays ..... Wish we had found it before. The food was amazing very fresh vibrant and well cooked. Amazing presentation great staff .. Only downside was I had a monumentous hangover from too many mojitos the night before but that wasn't their fault !! A must try......

Lovely and cheerful staff, great food - a different fusion of taste with a Catalonian twist. Away from all the touristic traps. A must if you're visiting!!

Booked a reservation on the day to eat here for dinner. 3 choices...2 courses for 25e, 3 courses for 30e or tasting menu for 44e. Decided to go for 2 courses as we were overly hungry but it was fantastic. I have eaten in Michelin star restaurants although this is of course not on that level but nevertheless the food... More

We visited here after reading about it in a Top 10 guide. It was a little difficult to find initially but were pleased we did as the food, wine and atmosphere was lovely. You can tell that the chef and his staff really care about providing a good service and original food. Thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely go back... More
