Main meal fish fideau negligible amount of sea food, of which 2 of the 3 clams were not open i.e. they were off. Huge amount of noodles which were also overdone. Dessert was an unremarkable custard dish. Service... More

Judging by the queue snaking outside, this place is rated by both locals and tourists alike. As other reviewers have said the wait is not overly long because the service inside is pretty quick. However when we got inside the table service wasn't as fast as we'd like and we were waiting a good 20 mins. When the food came... More

Located just off the Ramblas we stumbled on this restaurant by chance and we were not disappointed. The restaurant is located on two floors and we were on the top floor on a corner table. The lighting was dim and produced high heat which could be uncomfortable for some. Food was excellent, well presented, good portions and tasty. Service was... More

We were taken here by a local and enjoyed the food. To get a bargain price, look for the set meals. Great Paella

We arrived at 9 and there was a line outside. One of the staff members came outside and assured us that the wait would only be about 15 mins. She was right. The restaurant is a lot bigger than the ones we had eating at in BCN. Several people comnented on the poor service so we were curious to see... More

Absolutely amazing food for a reasonable price. Great sangria too. All my friends were also very satisfied with their orders. Didn't have the desert, though.

My second visit. I do not think it is as good as the last time (about 18 months ago). Food is quite good but not fine dining, however, the value is still great. Wine is also well priced. The atmosphere is good but you might expect to have to wait in line depending on time of sittings.

I specially looked for this restaurant because my friend highly recommend, it took me a while to find it.... The food was ok, as I haven't tasted much of Spanish food, I would say I had a delicious meal. But I felt angry at the end when I tried to get my bill. The first waitress didn't understand me, so...

I ordered the fix menu. Starter, main course and dessert. The black noodles was so great as starter and this is the only reason i gave them three starts rating. The main course and the dessert wasn't that good. Service was kinda bad as well.
