This is in a lovely location, a quiet square that wasn't too busy. However, that's the only good thing going for it. We got seated then had to wait 10 minutes before we were finally showed all menus and orders taken. It really says a lot about customer service when a member of staff is more interested in having her... More

We were staying around the corner, in a hotel on the Ramblas, and were desparate for a good early-morning coffee. As we walked towards this restaurant it was as if they had read our minds, and jumped to serve us. Although early in the morning, they insisted on putting a tablecloth on our table, and even put on the gas... More

We had a lovely meal and made all the better by our waiter Mario who we had a giggle with as our daughter ordered "sex on the beach" cocktail. Not far from La Rambla, in a quiet square. Highly recommend.

We were reluctant to stop here because it was clearly quite a touristy destination, but the Plaza is nice and it's beside Los Tarantos where we were going to see a flamenco show. Eating on La Rambla can be very expensive so this seemed like a decent alternative. The food wasn't as good as some of the other places we... More

Ate there as a family if 4 and had a selection of tapas. Staff were friendly enough but in the main the food was poorly presented, bland, used cheap ingredients and was very uninspiring. Definitely a tourist trap just off La Ramblas. Plenty of better places around.

My 16 year old daughter is quite particular with her pasta. She loved the mushroom carbonara here. I enjoyed the sangria!

The only good thing on this restaurant is his location, close to LaRambla, located on a samll and nice square between old nice buildings, with a nice view to the fontain. But there are also many other restaurants on this square, and I would not recomand anybody to have a meal here ! The food was not good at all,... More

Restaurant is in a fab location on the square. Great for people watching. We ate here twice as all the other restaurants were full. The menu is not very exciting and the food is just average but reasonably priced. The service was good on the Saturday night and the staff were quite friendly and we felt looked after. The Sunday...

Food was 'questionable'. My Paella tasted 'off' and the next 2 days I had a sick tummy. The little man coaxed us in and as there were other customers sitting at tables... We decided to try. Big mistake. 7:30 PM and the service was the worst in Barcelona as was the food. If we could report a restaurant for tourist... More
