Don't come here for the food, nor the service. Decor is nice. Bread was very nice, and the potato soup was pretty good. The chicken was overcooked in a non-descript sauce. The cannelloni was made with tinned tuna with flavour and excitement left out. Given that there are some strongly favourable reviews suggests they have some good moments, or bought... More

Rubbish. How on earth this restaurant maintains Km0 is beyond me. It is for all purposes exactly the same as any other sordid, touristic tapas place in Barcelona. Nothing makes it stand out other than the price, which one would assume is higher due to being better quality, but it's not. No one speaks Catalan in the place. Servers can't... More

So, i came here because I read it uses "Slow Food" standards and 0Km sustainable ingredients. Assuming that the quality of the ingredients is indeed better than all the thousands of average places in Barcelona that do "menus" (this is not perceivable), I did not enjoy this meal more than a meal that cost half what I paid here. However... More

Located centrally in the Gothic Quarter, Allium offers sleek interior design and menu. They have a modern and friendly ambiance where you can watch the cooks (women!) from your table if you choose. Excellent and attentive service. Delicious food choices including fish, veggies and meat with fried artichokes to die for! Clientele mixed ages and nationalities when we visited.

Visited this restaurant in Barcelona whilst on a guided trip with Intrepid. Our tour leader,Adriano recommended us to try. Where can you ever get an awesome 3 course meal with a drink plus coffee with this price? The food was simply made,fresh and delicious! The restaurant location is also ideal as it is close to all the shopping and sightseeing... More

We were getting desperate to find a place open. It was Sunday evening and we had been on a 3 hour bike tour. Tired and hungry we stumbled on this restaurant. The restaurant was run by ladies. The only one we saw during our entire two week visit to Spain. The female touch was every where. My wife was impressed... More

I cannot say anything bad or good about the food. Just about the ambiente, which is quite nice ... and the two cockroaches we spotted after the drinks have been served. Very particular was the waitress who told me - after I honestly reacted a bit hysteric (but just for two seconds :) ) - that "the little cockroaches won't... More

Just of Placa St. Jaume where the municipal and other government buildings and shopping are, the place is small and quiet. The service and food are very good. This a place to have a relaxing lunch in the middle of town in a busy day. Many other attractions are nearby, such as the Barcelona Cathedral (not the Sagrada Familia), the... More

We stopped in this very neat and clean little restaurant one evening while strolling through the Gothic Quarter. It was attractive but strangely empty, but we decided to give it a chance. We're glad we did. Very friendly staff, small but varied menu, reasonably priced, everything prepared on the spot, tasty, and nicely presented. We were pleased enough we returned... More

Just had dinner here, our last night in Barcelona. Wonderful experience, with friendly and helpful service. Read reviews on Yelp and TA, so decided to give it a try. Very reasonable restaurant in a fun area near La Rambla. Seemed like as many locals as tourists, which is always a good sign. We arrived on a Tuesday night, around 8:00,... More
