Booked online. Got there and they seemed surprised to see us. It was very quiet but sat down outside briefly. Nothing really took our fancy on the menu and they'd seemed confused that we'd arrived so we didn't think they'd mind us leaving before ordering.

Went here Sunday night (October 26) around 9:30pm. It was quiet with only 2 other couples there. Wasn't sure if they were still going as Sunday nights can be quiet in this area. No problem at all, the waitress welcomed us in and spoke English too. To drink we ordered house Vermut, my new favourite, and the waitress was happy... More

We came across this café/bar/restaurant quite by chance and it was a real find. The tapas meal we had was excellent as was the wine. The waitress was vey friendly and the service very good indeed. A bottle of Prosecco for 10 Euros, why wouldn't we??!! An added bonus was the ladies toilet it was so big and very clean... More

First of all the service was excellent. The waitress spoke good English, was kind, very helpful with explaining the dishes but discrete in the same time. Both tapas and main courses were very good (we had 4 tapas, the steak, the salmon and a salad). The carrot cake for desert was a great end to our meal. Prices are also... More

Fantastic, authentic restaurant with great food and friendly staff. The tapas was delicious, as were the mains and desserts. Would highly recommend this place for beautiful food and laid-back atmosphere

At first I was a little bit skeptical when we entered in the restaurant because there were no customers (it was 8 o'clock), but after we were welcomed by the staff (big plus for the staff) I started to feel in a very friendly atmosphere. The food is very good (also a big plus for the organic menu) and the... More

What a nice find! Our waitress was delightful, brought us the English menu and helped interpret the choices. She was busy, but we were in no hurry and enjoyed the slower pace. Chocolate cake was great - as was salad, tapas & salmon. So good went back a 2nd nite.

Would like to start by saying that the beginning of our meal was great , we placed our order, two staters and two mains. Three dished came out together and the start of things going down hill. Food itself tasty, not a massive selection but we did find something we liked. The fourth dish appeared 10 minutes later. We saw... More

Dear customer, thank you for your opinion and I'm really sorry to hear about your mixed feelings about our service. What you describe is definitely not what is expected to happen. May I ask you when you visited the restaurant, so that I can ask the waitresses what was the problem? Thank you very much for your collaboration and again... More

I am in Barcelona for a school master and I am aware that some restaurants are overpriced, but my experience here was not positive. First of all nobody spoke English, then I found out that they also had a menu in English. I decided to order what was announced as chicken breast salad and, normally, when you get a chicken... More
