We found this restaurant by chance. Lovely decor the waiters were very friendly. The fish soup and mussels were very good. Best sea bass I've had for a while, came with mixed veg. Hubby had the veal in green sauce which was also very tasty. With profiteroles for dessert this was a very nice meal. We had half bottle cava... More

A bit overrated. Nothing special. Good was bland. Service was slow. We were left waiting for a long time after our table was cleared.

In this restaurant you will find tourists but also Spanish people. The food is good and the price is not expensive. Some Spanish dishes but also more international food. I enjoyed the service and the good seating. I will go back.

We had a mixed salad, Jamon Serrano, Caramares a la romana, and Fideua! We paid €85 for those plus 2 beers and 1 bottle wine. All dishes are good, especially Fideua was fantastic!! Waiters are friendly, easy access from Paral-rel station. Highly recommend!!

Didn't have a booking but got straight in for lunch at 1pm. Incredibly friendly and helpful staff and really great food. We are paella fiends and this was definitely a paella worth having.

We wandered into this restaurant for lunch after Miro Museum. We soup and a couple of appetizers. The seafood soup was good but the appetizers were average and expensive.

I have never forgotten this neighborhood restaurant in Ave Parallel and Carrer Vila I Vila, I did not know my hotel was 7 mins away and we literally just found it again almost by chance as if gravitated to it. I remember their paellas were on the soupy side, but I think they have changed chefs since I last came... More

Warning # 1: All the customers spoke English, French, Russian. Not a word of Spanish or Catalan. Warning #2: The waiter dropped the bread basket on the table in a rush and left even though the restaurant wasn't overly busy. (turns out we were charged for it even though we didn't eat it - nor asked for it) Warning #3:... More

An upmarket looking restaurant but very reasonably priced. The food is Spanish (no chicken & chips here) and delicious. The staff were very friendly and helpful. It's just off the main road, we found it in the Lonely Planet guide and I'm very glad we did.

The location is elegant, well furnished and with a lovely jazz music in background. We had a Paella and it is totally amazing, a real traditional one. The prices are also reasonable considering the quality of the food: with a tapa, paella, dessert, coffee, water and wine 35€ each.
