We choose midday menu and the food was standard tasty (poor meat extras). Being Argentinean, the meat was not well-cooked. We miss fruit option for dessert. The service was good and bad: while the girl serving us the food was nice, the guy who was at the bar was rude: we ask for cafes in Catalan and he let let... More

Come here after looking at trip advisor city guide and with it being a couple of doors from my hotel (hotel carlit) I gave it a go. Myself and my girlfriend could not fault the place in anyway. Out every need was tended to and the waiter done a great job as host. The good was great as well. One... More

Well I really don't understand what the great reviews are about. We walked to this place from the Sagrada Familia because I had read such great reviews. The waiter serving us wasn't great andfirst of all just tried to give us the much more expensive a la carte menu and only left the value lunch menu when I insisted. And... More

Feeling a bit fatigued after a week of variable meals out, we decided to hunt out somewhere for steak on our last night in Barcelona. A lot of places in the area seemed to be closed on a Sunday evening, but the Parilla Alfonsina came up on Google and appeared to have Sunday opening so we decided to give it... More

We had a caprese empanada and a spicy beef empanada, they were okay. What we LOVED was our special menu. We got a bottle of wine and a tray of four cuts of steak (sirloin,... More

After eating tapas all over the city we looked for something different. Having traveled to Argentina we chose Alfonsina. The restaurant is small and intimate. Alfonsina herself took time to tell us about the menu and make suggestions. The food was excellent and coming from beef country the steaks were large and everything was delicious. I would recommend this to... More

We visited our daughter in Barcelona and the first thing she said she wanted was a good steak (besides peanut butter!). I found this place on Trip Advisor and it was one of the best steak restaurants we have eaten at. The steak was so tender, it melted in your mouth. We all got the Rib Eye - cooked to... More
