Fantastic Syrian food!

I've been to this restaurant many times and I have never been disappointed. It is in the basement of a shopping center next to Yelmo Cineplex (one of the few cinemas in Barcelona that show films in the original version) and really close to the Nova Icària beach. The atmosphere of the place is... read more

Wonderful variety of Syrian food and plenty of good choices for the vegetarian. A surprise in the base area of a shopping mall. Prices are very reasonable. Love the mint tea they serve here. A place you will want to return to.

Located at the bottom floor of an otherwise dead shopping center the restaurant offers good food at reasonable prices. Locations might not be great but you can combine the dinner with a visit to the icaria cinema that is located on the same foor in the shopping center, it's the only cinema in town that always shows the movies in...

Been there many times and always good quality food at a very reasonable price. The fact you always know what you are going to get a good meal makes it a regular stop when I visit the cinema next door. Service is the best in barcelona, friendly and efficient. This is a great example of a well managed restaurant.

The manager/owner if this place should get a standing ovation - the service in this restaurant is out of this world. I am continuously surprised at how gracious everyone is, and I have been going to this place for 10 years. The location is perfect if you are going to the movies in the shopping center, especially because the kitchen... More

We go to this Syrian restaurant every year when we visit Barcelona. Food is exceptional. Really fresh and tasty. Great value and friendly service too. This is one of a chain of restaurants in Barcelona. We haven't tried the other branches though.

The food was delicious and the service was attentive. They probably also speak English. Hint: Go for the all vegetable and all meat combo platters. Together they're enough for the whole family (of 3!)

Neighborhood Profile
Ciutadella / Vila Olimpica
The sounds of Marina Olympica's rocking boats and clicking mastheads swaying to and fro set an impressive backdrop for Ciutadella and Villa Olimpica. Follow the aromas of garlic, wine, and fresh local fish to the various restaurants running along the marina. A grand bronze fish statue soaring high above serves as a beacon to those searching for the renowned Casino Barcelona or the extremely popular nightclubs which practically lie on the beach itself.
