This is, without any doubts, one of the best places to have a fine dinner at a very attractive price and atmosphere. With 16€ you can have a dinner made of one starter, a main plate, like Paella, drinks, and a dessert. All very well served, just the starter can fill you up, I asked for a salad with "Jamon... More

I had some time to kill my myself before going to the airport and found this while wandering around the Barri Gotic. There was no wait, even at peak lunch hour. The prix fixe lunch included fideua negra with a strong garlic aioli, veal stew, and crema catalana, plus olives and a bottle of fizzy water for exactly what was... More

We went to have lunch. The atmosphere was very nice and so interesting. Values were so good compared to other restaurants in that area. As we didn't wait foods and drinks were very nice. We liked it. Also recommend for dinners.

This is a very good old style Catalan restaurant here in the old city section of Barcelona. Real napkins, waiters and food without all the pretensions of an expensive restaurant. Popular with both locals and tourists we always stop in for the Menu Del Dia when we have guests. `Very reasonable and good value for your Euro.

They are taking advantage of people's long waiting line as a marketing. While more than half of the tables available, they keep saying that "arranging the table!"
