I discover this restaurant by coincidence, as I called to make a reservation in Arume, a restaurant from the same owners, which was fully booked, so they recommend this one. I'm glad I got to know it. We had to wait about 35 min for the table, but the food and the service made it worth. We couldn't stop eating,... More

The Blackberry mojitos are amazing!!!! Be sure to make reservations, it can get busy at night. I had one of the specials, goose Foie Gras in ravioli. This was my first time trying Foie gras, and I was a bit skeptical.... but when in Barcelona.... I did not regret it! The service was wonderful. We will be back!

We chose this restaurant because it was rated high on trip advisor however we were disappointed. THe atmosphere is great but the food is average. Do not get the squid ink rice unless you like to eat food that looks like it's alive. The best part of the whole dinner was our pomegranate BlackBerry Mojitos.

Can't say much more than what the other reviews have said! Loved the blackberry mojito and the volcano of black rice. It was like paella with a twist. Service was excellent. Make a reservation a day in advance.

Just a quick review. We went last week, had deep fried prawns between us, then beef cheek for my partner and monkfish for me. WARM THE PLATES!!!! Every dish came on a cold plate. Not so much of an issue with the prawns, but the main meals were lukewarm at best by the time we received them. I had a... More

Thank god I've found that restaurant via tripadvisor, because otherwise I we wouldn't have found it. Everything was just perfect. Justifiable in the top 10. The service was outstanding and the waiters always open for a little chat. No hustle there. We could have eaten appetizers all night long, but had to go on with (sadly to say) just ONE... More

We went on a Tuesday with no reservation and the restaurant was full. But the staff there was too friendly and they offer us a seat on the bar bar for a drink until they have a free table. Food was excellent and the cocktails amazing. Try white sangria and blueberry mojito!

My only thing is how difficult it is too find. Make sure you use google maps. It took us around 20 minutes to find. You will find it tooked in to a straight which looks like indian town or something. But don't be put off. We had to comeback the following day as it was booked out. The food was... More

This was an interesting experience. Walking to the restaurant I wondered where we were going. Upon arrival we were cheerfully greeted and led to a back room to a corner, cramped table for 6 under a blaring speaker. So basically, I could not move or hear anything all dinner long. I did have delightful drinks; a blackberry mojito and another... More

Went here on a recent visit to Barcelona after reading the Tripadvisor reviews. It was a last minute plan and they managed to fit us in, although have been told its best to book in advance as they are generally busy - proof in the restaurant being packed even at 11pm. The service was fabulous, with everyone really making an... More
