We were recommended this restaurant by a friend who has visited Barcelona man time and I can now see why. It was pouring with rain and we turned up soaking wet dripping everywhere and yet were instantly greeted cheerfully and made to feel welcome. The menu has a selection of around 30 tapas and we tried around a dozen of... More

A simple restaurant where we seemed to be the only tourists. The food was fresh and tasty. We chose a range of tapas and could not have been happier. The house wine was thoroughly drinkable and the service was person and caring. Certainly to be recommended for those wanting atmosphere rather than bland sophistication. I cannot think why it is...

We originally went to the restaurant because it was close to the apartment we rented for our holiday. Found the restaurant to be outstanding. We ordered bread with tomatoes, iberian ham, shrimp scampi, and mushrooms. It was outstanding. We had the San Miguel beer also. Very enjoyable and the service was very good. We usually never repeat a restaurant --... More

When we visited this place for the first time we were very pleased with food, service and value for money. We spent there great evening and decided to come again. And than the nightmare began.... The owner attacked us, collected orders and started to bother us with his presence and talks for far too long. He forgot what we ordered... More

We feel very sorry if at any moment your stay at our restaurant has been disgusting. The person at the door is not the owner, is our PR and his job is to make our guest stay more confortable, it seems that he has done a bad job with your family and we will try to improve it next time... More

Our hotel staff recommended dining in El Born, so we walked around and were enticed in by the friendly staff offering us the menu to look at. The restaurant was pretty inside and very authentic with background music. We visited on Tuesday night so there were very few diners therefore service was prompt. We ordered patatas bravas, chorizo, croquettes, bread... More

Average tapas are let down even further by pretty mediocre service. Seemed like they were understaffed but instead of explaining, they pretty much just ignored folk. Don't bother.
