Good size Portion, but starter seem heavier than main course..might not be enough for some if only order main and dessert.. Great service, waiters all very helpful, good english Some reviewer mention the bad location, admittedly not the best area, but at no point... More

Two words to describe the entire experience: Arroz Negro (black rice). This was the peak of a great meal, in a great atmosphere, friendly staff and lovely deco. Situated in Sant Antoni, nearby restaurant Arume (same owners), it has a great menu, great drinks (Sangria is quite good) and great food. The Arroz Negro was the elected one and I... More

The food was relatively pricey but I knew what I was getting myself into (looking at previous reviews) , walking through the door, there was a minimum wait time of 25 minutes. Spent that time waiting at the bar while being served a Black Raspberry Mojito (Excellent! Recommended). The atmosphere was amazing with a diverse amount of tourist also waiting... More

Found it was easier to walk to than take a cab. It was tucked in on small back street. Several of us had the seafood Volcano which was a small mountain of seafood and black rice which contained very tin strips of tuna which undulated from the dish, appearing to be alive. It was very tasty. My wife had duck... More

The food was well prepared and my steak was cooked perfect and seasoned very good. They even stowed out stroller upstairs for us and found a high chair for us to... 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

The place was full and we have to wait only 15 min to get a table. Blackberry mojito was the best drink ever:) Food, starters, main cource and dessert were so delicious and timing for next food was perfect. Kindly staff and the owner vere on door when we left from restaurant. Best restaurant in Barcelona!

Can only agree with the majority of reviews on here, superb little restaurant..., if you want to get away from the fake tapas bars and enjoy some real cooking then this is the place ( though be warned it does get quite hot in there), great food, friendly staff, excellent service and atmosphere and reasonably priced...

A jewel... Difficult to find if you are just walking by... A small restaurant with a mix of Gothic and modern grills. Fantastic and great dishes! Original drinks are served meanwhile waiting for your table. Reservations are a must! Your dinner will end with coffee liquor to savor your delicious meal. Hosts are friendly and fun to be with.

We decided to eat here for a special meal long before we arrived in Barcelona based on the amazing reviews it had received. Like many things with great hype, it did unfortunately disappoint (a bit). Good points: It is in a trendy district and has a fantastic atmosphere. The staff are really friendly, welcoming and helpful. We had heard about... More
