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

We were in Barcelona for the first time in January and were exploring the maze of alleys in the El Born area. We came across this bar in a deserted courtyard and were instantly drawn into it by the inviting candlelight (it is dark inside) and the buzz of conversation and music We didnt eat there but had a couple...

We stopped here and had paella and pizza and a couple beers. The prices were a little high but the spot was in a great little plaza with lots of life.

Avoid this spot at all costs.....well maybe for a beer as that was cold and tasty. The 8 euro lunch was terrible to say the least - the chicken burrito lacked....chicken. One very small piece of chicken that tasted terrible. Two tortillas slapped together with a bit of cheese and covered with tomato sauce. I told the waitress who said... More
