I can't really say anything was "wrong" with this restaurant. It was just real simple food. The fish and and the pork chops came with identical sauces, the veggies didn't seem that fresh, and the atmosphere was more of a diner. OK if you are on a strict budget, but otherwise not worth a trip. I definitely wouldn't go out... More

Restaurant is close to the Ramblas. Excellent, simple food, very well done. Service was " right on" - not intrusive. We had melon and ham, asparagus with salad, tortilla and salmon a la plancha. Fresh sheet everyday, cannot wait to take our son back. Reasonable, not precious, just a room of happy talk and a wait out the door, but... More

We went here on the advice of the Rough Guide book, it is a fairly small place but very popular and we had to wait a couple of minutes for a table. We ordered tuna steak and grilled gambas and both were really tasty, my husband also had the grilled aubergines to start and he assured me they were lovely... More

No english, 4 out of 5 were Galicians and there is a picture of them all on the wall, looking exactly the same. This is the... More

I'm all about being authentic, however this restaurant was simply bad food (and that's what should matter in a restaurant!). I had the pork and peppers, it was just two tiny pieces of pork and a roasted pepper on a plate. Absolutely no seasoning of any kind and the pork was tough. We got a pitcher of Sangria and it...

This was a unique Spanish experience and way off the tourist track. We had to wait outside for a table with some locals who said it was the best value food in town. Don't go with high expectations about the food. It is basic well cooked food in a hectic environment. The two cooks and the barman did not stop.... More
