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... read more

Authentic restaurant in the Gotic quarter with a very clean and beatiful interior. Friendly staff, fresh and very tasty food for a correct price, especially for Barcelona.

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...

Dearest, I must say this was one of our more horrid dining experiences. Our expectations were high, as your restaurant boast both tripadviser and Michelin recommendations.

Before going to this restaurant I viewed the reviews and was pleased with what I read. However the only thing that resembled anything close to the praises was the affability of the owner.
