Amazingly they served cider, so we both had a pint, plus olives and patatas bravas. When we went to pay wewere told it was in with... More

We went here to do one of the free tours. We only had a coffee. And a beer afterwards. Prizes were good, since you get a discount when doing a tour. It has a nice terrace, and a good location, being in barri gotic. Would only visit it again for another tour or information. For a regular visit to a... More

Nice little area but God forbid if you want to adjust the food in any way. I wanted something like a salad but without something in it. The waiter was like "Oh I will ask but it is not what is on the menu". They finally brought it and he was like "Do not come back and ask for any... More

We were delighted to come across this friendly, reasonably priced, bar on a recent holiday. A small menu, but tasty food. Yes, its a bit scruffy, but that's all part of its charm. We were especially thrilled with the walking tours and went on two. They're free, but you are encouraged to tip at the end if you think it... More

My boyfriend and I have been travelling for 3 months and this place takes the cake for the worst service so far. We entered and sat down and even though there was hardly anyone in the place it took the waiter 5 mins before he came across and slid one menu across our table toward us without even saying hello....
