Try somewhere else!

Made a decision to go here after walking out of another restaurant in the same square earlier in the evening but shouldn't have gone a little further out. This square of restaurants pull in the tourists and I would suggest going somewhere a little further from La Ramblas for some good food. We... read more

We had tapas there. The food was really horrible. We received (and got charged for) food we didnt order. The waiters couldnt care less. Tourist trap, would avoid at all cost!

Don't even bother coming to this restaurant. Nothing to shout about the food and the service was absolutely horrid. Waiter was rude and most of the time couldn't be bothered to attend.

The waiter was extremely rude. I ordered potato omelette, told him the meal number twice yet still I got different omelette and he was arguing that I did not order the potato one. The other thing is that my bf ordered octopus & while waiting for food we saw someone refusing the octopus, after few seconds the guy came back... More

Amazing sangrias. We went quite a few times during the day for just sangrias and a bit of rating after a long day of walking around Barcelona.

Rude staff from the start. Poor ambience, staff shouting at one another. Average food. Long waits for service. Tourist trap. Would not recommend.

We chose this restaurant on the evening because of the location and a table on the front line was available. Not always the best reason to make a choice. The atmosphere in the Placa was interesting. Busy. Entertaining. Beggars. Street venders selling roses, children's toys and bird tweeters. We were constantly being hassled but we do enjoy the banter and... More

Nice place to watch the world go by. Sat here for three hours and drank lots and had food. Felt pressure to pay bill when we hadn't asked for it. I think the waiter was finishing his shift and wanted a tip. We paid up and moved to another bar. Lasagna was really good here too.

Very disappointing meal. Paella with very little in it and overcooked rice. Meal was plagued with street sellers and beggars The staff seemed more interested in trying to get new diners in rather than attending to their existing diners. Expensive and the only time the waiter was attentive was when he seemed desperate for us to pay Great location but... More

Ate here as a family, what can we say but shockingly bad food with stroppy waiter service. Clearly pre prepared food reheated upon order. Couldn't wait to get Bill and upon doing so was asked if we were going to add a tip!!! Avoid if you can!
