We loved this place and went there twice on a 4 day trip. Had the most wonderful starter - Marinated tuna in soy sauce and ginger with pistachio nuts, fantastic steak and good value wine. Tip - during the day they do a set menu for €14.95 including a glass of house wine. These are full portions and served up... More

We arrived at this restaurant in the pouring rain but this great place soon warmed us up.. The welcome was friendly, the atmosphere lively, and the service was attentive and charming. The steaks and starters were excellent. The chimichurri sauce took me back to my south american chldhood, as did the perfectly prepared and aged meat. This was a wonderful... More

I repeated the update to 10 persons, the name of the reservation and time about 5 times. Unfortunately it wasn't updated so when we arrived the manager advised they... More

Celebrated my birthday at this restaurant after reading reviews on Trip Advisor. I was not disappointed! The food was excellent from starters to dessert. Most outstanding however was the steak, absolutely perfect! Lovely restaurant with exposed brick walls and low lighting. Efficient and friendly staff, a definite must for anyone looking for perfect steak in Barcelona!

Super helpful, friendly, staff who didn't mind my utter lack of Spanish. Truly excellent steak - cooked to perfection (el punto).

Really nice food ( I order an ARGENTINEAN ENTRECOT ) plus excellent service provided. Really good value for money, I ll come back there for sure in my next trip to BARCELONA. Even though, they recommend me places to see around, like a tourist information
