I went because of Julian Carax

I had heard about this restaurant from numerous sources, the most influential one being the novel The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon (highly recommend reading this book before your trip to Barcelona), and had to check it out for myself.

We were told to go to this establishment by friends on our recent trip to Barcelona.the atmosphere was as expected for such an old resturant cafe used by Picasso and his friends,the service was old fashioned waiters in long white aprons.the food and drink was quite good but pricey but we did go away enjoying the jazz and atmosphere

Turned up for my re-arranged reservation (which was handled no problem by email) to be shown through the quirky tiled bar into the large impressive dining room which also had a gallery running round at least two sides. While I didn't intend to go for a full three course menu as I had over indulged a couple of days earlier... More

Second visit, and I was nervous bout recommending it for dinner but shouldn'y have worried. Interesting surroundings, good historical relevance (Picasso et al, but no mention on the noventaiochistas - am I confused?), better than expected food, and fun, attentive service. I had the Cod which was light and perfectly cooked.

Cafe has a really quaint interior with many of Picasso's works on the walls. Homey feel. Bar and walls have a nice mosaic design. Lamb was a miss - meat was tough. But egg with foie gras and cod fish dish with gratin were really yummy!! Had the creme brûlée and that was a pleasant surprise as well - although... More

Stopped in for dessert and after dinner drinks. Creme Catalan was tasteless. They did pour a hefty Gran Marnier but wanted to chill it and argued with us about us wanting it warmed. You can look in to see where Picasso et al drank--then move on.

The restaurant was recommended by our hotel Casa Camper. Th food was very good. We felt the service very good and the atmosphere made it worth sitting in. This is a historic restaurant where Picasso often ate. Loved the food and atmosphere.

We had enjoyed a meal here 4 years ago and so we came back. It was dreadful: overcooked, miniscule portions. It seemed by the large groups of people that they now cater to the cruiseship/ large group tour itinerary. not focused on good food or dining experience any more.

I was pleased to find this restaurant/cafe as it had been recommended, but so disappointed as the staff were just rude and unhelpful! We got the impression that they are not fond of tourists, although we did try and order in Spanish. Felt uncomfortable and feel the place is a pretentious rip off.

Beautiful restaurant and delicious food. There were 6 of us (3 couples), and we were surprised when our waiter brought us 6 flutes and a bottle of champagne which he opened with flourish AFTER we had paid our check. That was a FIRST!
