Food is not bad at all... But service is like a punch right in the stomach. Seriously, really slow and we had to deal with various misunderstandings during mains and desserts...

After disappointing afternoon on La Rambla street where almost every restaurant is a rip off - food is very average and very overpriced, we found this place. They have a good variety of Tapas, we ordered 7 of them and then steak to share. Tapas are well above average so I was surprise by poor reviews. Would definitely recommend this... More

We must have struck lucky when having dinner here looking at some of the other reviews. We are picky eaters and like good service. We had a good selection of tapas and the wine recommended by the staff was pleasant. The food could have been hotter but the portions were generous. The bill was reasonable too. It was a very...

Waited 50 mins for food. 3 of us. One had a ball of burnt meat that was supposed to be sirloin. Two of us has a fish dish that was all bone and fat and was undercooked. Two staff ignored us. We paid 76 euros for absolute crap. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND this place to my worst enemy. The outside is... More

Portions were small, quality of the food was poor (food was cold, tasteless and badly made), service was rude so I don`t recommend this place to anyone.

Stumbled into this restaurant around 11.30pm, looked like they were closing as the kitchen staff were already cleaning up, but the waiters kindly let us sit and order some food. Ordered a small selection of cold and hot tapas, which was very tasty. Fried white bait with egg, cheese dip with baguette, pesto prawns and a couple of other dishes... More

You better avoid this place. Only one waiter to serve all the customers, food below expectations for a restaurant with sheets on tables. The only thing on the high level was pricing. Instead, find a small place, like a tapas bar, with local people inside. This is almost always guaranteed that you will get decent food reasonably priced.
