Although the waiter could have been a tad more friendly the food more than made up for it when it was brought out to us! We had been walking all morning from where we were staying in the north of the city and decided we were ready for some refreshment so stopped for lunch at this place probably because it... More

Delicious meal. My wife had the pork shoulder dinner, which wasn't the "fight the bone" experience (fortunately), but was great tasty, pork slices. I had the grilled octopus & grilled razor clams, both very good & flavorful. We also shared the padron peppers--excellent if you like Spanish food.

The restaurant is slightly removed from the hustle and bustle of Barri Gotic, but well worth a pleasant stroll through the backstreets to enjoy a meal. We booked as a group through bcnrestaurants and could not have been more pleased with the result. The staff were friendly and engaging and produced an excellent meal with some delicious tapas that were... More

We came to check if the extremely careful design of the interior matches the food. What a surprise! The food is superb, with a presentation worth a Michelin star. We took different desserts to check if they also dominate that area - same result... (Crema Catalana, Tarte Tatin, Coulant de Chocolat). Make a reservation - very few tables. But definitely... More

When straying for a place to eat we rounded a corner and were taken by les Lletres window decoration and the intimate looks of its interior. It felt good to enter from cold November air outside to a welcoming attitude inside. As for most other places in the area, tapas was also promoted here. However the menu contained a sufficient...

We stayed at the Med Apartment next door, and it was therefore convenient to just go here for supper. However, we wouldn't have come 3 times if the quality didn't match what we paid for our meals. Everything was well made and delicious, from the tapas, over entrees to main courses. All served with care and a pretty good wine... More

We stayed at one of their apartments above the cafe and needed a place to eat our first night. All in all, a very good meal and reasonably priced. We ate outside in the square across from the restaurant. It is on a pretty busy street so it was a bit noisy. The inside of the restaurant looked very nice.

It was our last night in Barcelona and we were actually looking for a different restaurant and in the process of getting lost we found this gem! It was quaint, warm, and inviting. The server was informative and offered a nice wine suggestion to go with our cheese and other dishes. I had Monkfish and a number of tapas. The... More

The interior and service cannot be faulted. Both very good and well tuned out. We had 5 tapas dishes which were mediocre at best. From the freezer to the fryer was about it. Spanish omlette out of a packet and microwaved. Patas barvas with ketchup and mayo. May be thats their way ! That said you get a lot of... More
