Went here whilst travelling for work. The food and service were decent enough but we have had better elsewhere.

We attended this restaurant for desert, just awful. Caramel tart looked like it had been thrown on the plate and the raspberry cheese cake had a weird taste - nothing nice to say about the food what so ever. The service however was really good, the staff were friendly and made the experience bearable. Overpriced, do not recommend.

This is a good place to eat, the food is very good and well presented and the staff friendly. There are plenty of wines to choose from. During winter there is an open fire which gives a lovely atmosphere.

My friends and I catch up here maybe once every four to six months, and whilst service has been declining (ridiculously long wait for food, surly staff, average at best food) the location is nice and it had become a bit of a tradition. However, meeting there will be a thing of the past. The 'manager's' policy of not serving... More

We visited Barcelona while we were touring the gorgeous state of Tasmania and witnessed the previous comment involving a fly. The wait staff were VERY apologetic and kind. We were all seated in outdoor seating and it was a hot busy day in Salamanca square. The man had eaten most of the meal and completely over reacted. Being of Sydney... More

We breakfasted at this establishment on 15 February 2014. My partner ordered a dish comprising fettuccini /prawns. Shortly after commencing the meal, he found a clearly cooked half-fly in the food. As a doctor, it was clear to me that this winged creature was indeed a fly and further, that it was shrivelled as it would be after cooking. There... More

You can see and hear the chefs and wait stuff abusing each other, very off putting and unprofessional, Meals were great though and didn't take long to come out.

Menu looked promising so was looking foward to dinner here. Service was slow, had to ask for water multiple times & took a long time for each course to come. Croquettes were dry and disappointing, salmon main was ok, cheesecake desert quite good. Sat for a hour at the end, no bill bought to table. Difficult to get anyone's attention... More

I waited for 2 cocktails for15mins. Got a refund that was 5 bucks short. Why wait when there's so much more too offer.

Had a casual dinner here last Saturday night and ordered the salmon pizza which was the best pizza I've ever had! Great location, atmosphere, service and beer/wine selection. Will be back.
