pub with nice decor, and very friendly bar tender. Outdated music played all day and night...television on inside and outside. To be fair .this is the same with all the bars around here. I think a facelift is required and serious updating.

The beer is here is quality, cold & very varied. Jordi & his family can't do enough to help you. His Mother Pilar is uber polite & very friendly, though Papa Joan, likes to play the odd prank, all in harmless good humour

We had breakfast there just before heading off to the Barcelona Grand Prix. Prices were reasonable for a full cooked breakfast and the staff were friendly and helpful.

Have met Jordi ( & his siblings and parents ) many many times. For my wife & I they are like an extended family. NOTHING is too much trouble for them & Jordi is a fantastic host. The food is beautiful & the beer COLD. Can't believe we go back on 31 days time, yipee.
