I know Barcelona relatively well, and it can be hard to find a decent place I the centre. The set menu here is very good value. I had a very tasty grouper with saffron mashed potatoes. Tapas menu Seemed also have good options.

We had the duck and the aubergine and both were executed really well. The house red wine was also great and everything was very reasonably priced. We might've had dessert but the options weren't written down on a menu anywhere and we didn't understand the options that we were told (we don't speak Catalan/Spanish so partly our fault too!)

Fine cuisine with fresh products (ceviche, mushrooms) and spicy cooked meat with good vegetables for the main course for a very reasonable price.

This restaurant has been refered by some travel books as a good place to taste Tapas, which explained why I went there. No doubt, the Tapas Calamary, and Tapas peppers (this one is quite hot for non spicy lovers) that I ordered was so delicious. It reveals the true taste of Tapas flavour offered. The price is quite cheap I... More

Just left this fabulous haunt. Second visit and can't fault the food, atmosphere and service. A lovely local area with a great feeling of Catalonia. Sitting outside on the terrace is a perfect people watching spot out of the way of the bussling Rambla mayhem. Must recommend the 'Brussels Mussels,'

A chance encounter after a hard day on the beach. Inventive food - plantain fritters with lime and coriander mayonnaise for example. Chilled atmosphere, friendly staff and great food at a very reasonable price. Go.

So besides the usual suspects Padrones, Bravas, Calamares, and a... More
