Most people will never find it as it is tucked away off Calle Mar in Badalona but this restaurant is well known to locals who go there for special occasions as well as for business lunches. The "menu del dia" is very reasonable at 12 euros given the quality of the food. It is a traditional Catalan Restaurant with a... More

If you’re looking for amazing culinary derivatives… this isn’t the place for you. Here you’ll see a very traditional Catalan menu, with solid and agreeable service, dishes of a normal size and consistency and overall you’ll come away thinking that you’ve paid the right amount of money (about 12-15 euros/head) for an agreeable lunch.

I ate there with my family. The food is pretty good, they have a large selection of good (but expensive) wines and the desserts are awesome! The problem is that they serve tables so slowly! The waiters are so kind. I recommend this place if you've got enough time!

One of the best restaurant in Badalona. I suggest to come here even if you are in Barcellona. Not so far. excellent chef And honest price. Some elaborate dish but with a local soul. Honest price. Good service And inside a very quite little garden to enjoy. They have no WI FI.

We went to this place as it looked awesome but it was one of the worst mistakes we made on our traves around Spain. We just felt unwelcome and the food was expensive but not the fresh, beautiful local produce we expected. It's practically in the sea! Are you kidding me? Maybe it's better of you are from the town.... More

Went in to book a table for a "special meal" in Badalona. The manager had a load of people standing around at the door, seated the locals and ignored those not from the town. He actually had the arrogance to physically brush me and my wife twice out of the way to tell a small group of locals to come... More

We usually eat here once every time that we go to Badalona. Consistently good Catalan cuisine, decent prices and excellent service. Always opened late for us. Well worth a trip to enjoy a comfortable meal in a nice setting.
