Have been here twice now for brunch and have not been disappointed. The selection - even for vegetarians is great, the quality, taste, selection and flavours are impressive and not too expensive.

It takes you 20-30 mins to get in another 45 mins to get your food. So out of 1,5 hours spent there you spend more than 1 hour waiting If you are hungry do not even consider. At the end food is nothing special...

Interior looks nice. Tables but also high stools at the bar. Not comfortable with a skirt. You have to make reservations in advance! Orange juice (€3)served as fresh in nice jars but came out of a large plastic container. Bagel with beef & egg (€13) nice spicy taste but when you sit at the bar you see all dishes prepared... More

My husband and I have been living in BCN for the last 2 months and have enjoyed several brunches here. During our last week in town we decided to give dinner a try. Made a reservation...arrived on time, only to find out that the place was not yet open. The chef saw us looking in and recognized us. He came... More

We were recommended this place by the staff at our hotel, and ended up eating here 3 times: the brunches are SO good, and the coffee even better. Highly recommendable =)

It happens to be a bit too much busy and noisy for weekend brunch, which is what it comes to be most famous for. Instead, if you go in week days for dinner, it's usually quite and not difficult to find a table. They have original plates and we have always found everything we have tried of an excellent quality.

We came here for Sunday brunch around 2pm, the place was very busy and we had to wait for around 20 minutes outside in the street to be seated, nobody gave us a menu or took out drinks order, not an ideal start. However once inside the staff were friendly and accommodating despite rushed off their feet. I had the... More

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighborhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighborhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
