Two glasses of wine, one of which we gave back cause it tasted as if the bottle had been opened days ago, and two tapas, whitout bread cause they forgot: 20 euros!! Definitely not barcelona price standards, and I know cause I'm local. That's the price you'd pay in a much more fancy place, and you'd definitely get more for... More

We went here for a late lunch after finding reviews for great Catalonian food. The staff was very friendly and the food was excellent. Their wine and gazpacho were wonderful choices for a hot day of walking around the city. The crema Catalana (creme brûlée) was perfection. We asked for an espresso for a pick-me-up and the bartender suggested a... More

Last day in Barcelona my wife and I decided to have a sit down Catalonia dinner and find this small restaurant in a quiet street corner via TripAdvisor. we were not disappointed!. the owner was very friendly and the food was very reasonably priced and tasty. A pitcher of sangria (10 Euro) was enough for three.

The set lunch was tasty, filling and great value at 13 euros. The cod in tomato sauce - a speciality of the house - was particularly good and well worth the couple of euros supplement. I'm not from Barcelona or Catalonian so I don't know if the food and atmosphere were 'authentic' or not....but it certainly felt that way to... More

Nice place for lunch, which we found through tripadvisor. It was what we were looking for (traditional food, not touristic). We loved the cozy environment and the starters were great (we tried the menu proposals). But the main dishes varied from great (the cod with sauce), to bad (the lamp stew was a disaster). The nuggets were nice but small... More
