Enjoyed a business lunch at this lovely restaurant, located in an old house in Zona 10. Could have easily been a meal in Madrid. Very professional service; extremely attractive/classy interior. A step back into the past. Asparagus soups was delicious, as was the house-made warm bread. Fish a la plancha, with garlic sauce, was perfect - served with fresh veggies... More

We'll make a special trip to go back here to eat. Our lunch was excellent - very old world service and atmosphere. Scott's paella was very good and quite reasonable for the large portion with lots of seafood. My meal was expensive but I was delighted. I love Bacalao and hadn't had it for some time. It was served Catalan... More

My colleagues ordered fish and found it average. I ordered the large shrimp and found it wonderful! The appetizers were delicious and the setting of the restaurant was very cozy.

The food was excellent but a little too pricey, the place was really comfortable for family eating. Great for Spanish food in the middle of the city.

Fancy restaurant, with the impression that you're walking into a very elegant house with a staircase in the first Room where you'll find the first batch of tables. Each Room of the house has a couple of tables for small groups. The wooden furniture makes you feel you're at a friends house. Service is great. Crème brulée tasted exactly the... More
