Great service and fine quality food

Totally worth visiting. It's a different place. Very quite and relaxing. You don't find people shouting in here. Its truly a good place for trying traditional Catalan dishes. Probably best to go to with family or as a couple.

Service was excellent, I want to make that clear. The food however left a lot to be desired. A pig trotter chorizo and wild mushroom rice should be very flavoursome and well seasoned. Mine though was bland under seasoned and well basically not nice. As I say the service and restaurant were both perfect; but at the end of the... More

On a short holiday the best food we had in Barcelona - seemed to go out of their way to cater for 5 of us (including a 3 year old) and loved the historic building, ambience and the service that felt personal without being intrusive. Each part of the meal and the wine was superb.

Really enjoyed our dinner here. The service was the best i've seen all week in Barcelona. They even have free wifi so Im writing this review at the restaurant! As a couple, we shared the vegetable and goat cheese salad, meat and seafood paella, and the fresh mint and chocolate dessert. Great sangria as well.

this place is seeped in history. From what I took from the translation this is the oldest non-stop family run restaurant in Spain, over 120 years old. It was an old clock shop and a poet lived there so the place is beautifully decorated with clocks and poetry. Service was excellent and I got a great tour of the place... More

My girlfriend and I came here in search of Paella and Pitarra did not disappoint! The staff were friendly even though it was near closing. We ordered the grilled veggies with goat cheese and the mixed paella. Both were excellent. They split the veggies and goat cheese onto two plates for us but assured us it was one portion even...
