I ate paella with chicken and sausage. Every piece of chicken was full of small crushed bones. My friends ate BBQ and... More

Overpriced ready-made food. Tomatoes were miles from ripe and the chips were definitely reheated. Beer was triple the usual cost and had 50% water. Service want particularly friendly either. Avoid at all costs!

We had some of the most expensive and tasteless cheese fondu here. I think they just heated up some milk it was so bad. There are several other good restaurants on Rambla del Poblenou and unfortunately this isn't one of them.

Decided to visit this place which was one of many on La Rambla in Poblenou. Food was basic at best and not value for money. My wife's cannelloni arrived 20 mins after the rest of the family's meals and if was disgusting. I am still not sure what meat was used in the filling ! I refused to pay for... More

Had a few beers and a bite to eat with friends. Beers were good but I felt the food was really basic. Order the shoulder of lamb and the only thing it came with was chips....a bit disappointing.

My girlfriend and I went there because we were on a budget and the place looked reasonably priced. Little did we know that we would be charged AN ADDITIONAL 1 Euro per person for sitting outside (decision NOT up to the client) which was NOT pointed to us by the unfriendly waiter. Food was factory made and just preheated in... More

We walked past this restaurant and decided to have dinner here. There was not much on offer for tapas, so we decided to order a lasagne and pizza. I couldn't help notice that the couple at the table next to us were not very pleased with the food and service but I tried not to let that spoil our experience.... More

The food was terrible and the bill was very expensive for what we got. The staff were polite but lacked that friendliness that makes you feel comfortable.

Prices higher than at the neighbours. Incomplete printed menu, poor information regarding dishes from the waiter so that we received something different than we expected. Big waiting time even if it was not full. Nothing memorable, nothing bad. Good Sangria.
