Nice food

Food was great. Shame it is let down by very slow service. Reasonably priced. Lacking a bit of atmosphere, some music would make it seem a bit more upbeat.

We were recommended this restaurant by the hotel for local food. When we arrived it seemed to be a good choice - the interior is very interesting. Unfortunately, the food was very basic. Lack of flavour and French fries with everything. We didn't think it seemed very local to us? Service was ok, but quite unfriendly. We didn't hang on... More

Decided to have a cup of coffee in this place, but when the waiter saw that I have 200 bill he simply told - "we are not gone sale this coffe to you". Discussed this situation with a manager - the same result. Thus, unfortunately, did not have a chance to test a coffee in this "lovely place" which is... More

El Mussol used to be in my top ten list, but unfortunately the service is getting really bad. I have been waiting for 25 minutes in an empty restaurant. Two waiters and only 6 occupied tables. Then food arrived 20 minutes after I complained. The waitress seemed upset because I was not happy sitting there wasting my time, and she... More

The reviews of this restaurant were not too promising but my friend and I needed something different than tapas. At 7 p.m. the huge restaurant was completely empty and only a handful of guests came in until we left. The menu was available in several languages and seemed to scream "tourist place", however I was pleasantly surprised. My friend had... More

We were new to the neighborhood and looking for a good dinner after a long day of travel. Tried Mussol on Diagonal 488. The grilled chicken was best we have had, ever. Would return anytime. Service was not fast but was OK. Later mentioned our visit to Hotel Front Desk and was told it is well known for very good... More

Ask for Mickey; wonderful waiter with a good grasp of English and a terrific sense of humor. I had the lamb both nights we were there, as well as their version of baked potato. Both were excellent.

We had discount coupons which they refused to honor, having assured us when we arrived that they would. This topped off an evening of mediocre food and appallingly indifferent service.
