The atmosphere inside this restaurant was very good and the standard of the decor was excellent and inviting so we expected to have a better dining experience than we actually received although the staff were very accommodating. Having eaten well at lunch time we opted to have a one course meal and my husband chose the T bone steak and... More

Could be one of the worst meals ever had it not been for the delightful cheese. Whilst the manchego was average, the Brie and goats cheese were top notch. The real low light was the fish omelette has recommended by the waiter. The real what on earth is happening moment was the potato bravas, with the sauce looking and tasting... More

Our group of people got a bad food poisoning after having a dinner in this restaurant. I had to volmute every 10 minutes during the next day and needed to go to a hospital at the end. We ate some seafood, which I think caused it. Good food, but I don't recommend if you want to get home on the... More

Spain, really nice food and pretty good and special service. We did ask for their recommendation to share and we got a little bit of everything, the pork and wine was great

Excellent food and venue. Great service as well. True taste of Barcelona. Little pricey, but found it to be worthwhile. Nice location, about 2 blocks off Diagonal. Recommended by the concierge at our hotel and it did not disappoint!

A friend and I split a paella for a starter and had steaks for the main course, with a nice rioja. The paella was very good and loaded with seafood, though not the best I have had. The steaks were good quality, but served relatively under-cooked. They did 'cook' a bit on the sizzling cast iron platters on which they... More

We found this restaurant when checking out botafumeiro which was recommended by our hotel for good paella. This place was right next door and there was a line of locals getting take away lunch from here on a Sunday. Botafumeiro was quite expensive and more of a fine dining restaurant which is not what we were looking for so had... More

Here's a place that meets the needs of those searching for times past. Service is good, and the food won't disappoint, as we shared with friends, sampling many items, wine, and digestives after the meal. Come hungry and leave happy!

Cozy and charming but food was average. Dessert was better than the meal. The waiter was friendly but he was pushing some drinks and some desserts. Not so cool from his part.
