The problem with Barcelona is it can be hard to know in advance whether you'll get good value for money. Sometimes it's just worth it paying 2-3 euros extra for much more food and of better quality. One of the main reason my group chose Upiaywasi for dinner was that the prices seemed cheaper than other places we had walked... More

Horrible food. The paella was premade from Mercadona (premade at a supermarket) and the pizza was horrible also. They have a nice outdoor seating area. Would be a nice place to have a beer outside, but if any eating is involved the experience absolutely horrible.

We are staying in an apartment in this square so went there first as it was so close but have since been back as we enjoyed it. It has peruvian influences so the menu is slightly varied from the norm

Had a couple of non-alcoholic cocktails there which were really nice. We were unfortunate, however, to order nachos which had some kind of cheesy sauce on them rather than melted cheese. Also the chili was aweful. But the drinks made up for it

Called in for drinks, service was good, staff friendly and prices reasonable. Good atmosphere in the square with some locals playing guitars - just added a nice touch. As with all such places in the area space is limited, buts that's part of the charm. Didn't eat but menu looked OK.

The restaurant is located in a cute square, with a bohemian and artistic atmosphere. We had 3 meals and a drink each for 12 Euro, and the quality of the food was great. There was a list if 14 meals to choose from , which is unusual for offers. The pasta was very well cooked, especially the sauce. The chicken... More

They messed up our simple order because of a system failure. But hey, no-one's perfect so we decided to wait. Then, after an hour and without apologies, arrived our tasteless patatas bravas. A bit later, two horrible burritos, starter portion, yet main-course price. Red wine was ok. Cava mediocre. Avoid this place...

You can find so much better place near by especially if you are going to eat something. Prices are high - two meals were very small and taste was nothing special. Maybe this is a place to have a drink or two because the are around is nice.

Made a visit here on our last night and had a blast! A good vibe, mixed with tourists and locals added to the amazing decor. Ok it's not a five star restaurant but its a great place to have drinks with friends or a cosy late night drink with your partner. The staff are fantastic and very helpful. There are... More
