Lots of table-side peddlers

Food was okay. Lots of peddlers soliciting tables while you eat; roses, whirly-gigs, money. Quick service. Ask for your bill.

We had a seat at this busy restaurant quickly and had drinks in front of us 5 minutes after sitting down. The food was fresh and tasty and they were great with children.

We ended up at this restaurant for dinner (due to location). It is absolutely horrible and food is terrible / disgusting. WE all ordered something different and the conclusion was the same: horrible. I ordered a pizza for 11 euros. It was still frozen in the middle.... Service was minable. Avoid at all cost...

Fresh food with a cheerful service in placa Reial. Tried their shrimp grill, cold vegetables, aubergines, chicken, lamb, shrimp rolled in potato nests. As the evening sets in the Placa lights up and transforms into a magical setting.

Terrible place. Service is very bad. Food is terrible. If you finish your food they ask you to leave. Never go to this place. Waste of time and waste of money...

I'm trying some rstaurants in Barca because in September I'm coming again -with my daughter who is a big fan of soups. The meal without a soup is worthless in her eyes. Many restaurants offer only gazpacho which is cold, good for hot day but I guess my little princess would expect sth more and different every day ;) The... More

We stopped here for lunch and were disappointed with the food, however the sangria was good. We had an avocado salad and lasagna, which was mediocre at best. Nice view of the fountain.
