Great food & excellent value for just off the Ramblas. Gets very busy though and many of the locals queue to get in. But that can only be a good thing

Really good restaurant with good price. Its a bright restaurant, good service and 2 menus option. You can choose from a day menu or classic menu. It opens at 13:00 and in a few minutes, its all set. Menu (start, main dish and dessert) is around 15 euros. A must go!

Very overrated. We waited outside 30' and when we finally made the order another 30'. The paella was decent but nothing special, salmon with honey very similar with 100s, and sangria was good. If you hungry i suggest to avoid waiting because you will need at least 45' total until your first bite

We ate poor paella, in fact there wasn't almost fish. The atmosphere is good because of the beautiful interior design. Quite low cost, so good price/quality.

Loved this restaurant from the minute we entered the door. We were greeted with a smile and shown to a lovely table even though we didn't have a reservation. I liked that the tables were set with white linen and shining glassware. We had the best gazpacho I have ever tasted, sea bass and cream catalana. Three courses and a... More

Had picked due to good trip advisor reviews but Very average food. Reasonably priced but the mixed starter was poor. Cold and chewy calamari, and the mains were ok but pretty unexciting.

This is a restaurant i like visiting because it offers good value for money and quick service. However, they no longer take reservations, which is quite challenging for large groups. Since we were a big group on the family reunion, we were able to get seated within 10 minutes, however, we had to be in 3 separate tables for 6,... More

Excellent food and very good value. We have eaten here on previous visits to Barcelona and has always been very good. On this visit we were shocked at the poor service. Our own waitress was pretty good, but it seemed that couples all around us were desperately trying to get someone to come to their table. Once the order was... More

Food was great. Great service. We ordered Paella Marisco. Their starters are delicious as well, I recommend Goat Cheese Salad for starter. They also have very good Sangria. Great price. Everything was good and we went there twice while staying in Barcelona! We got recommended to go there from our youth hostel!
