I joined my business colleague and friend here without knowing the place. My taxi driver said there's not a restaurant at this address or it can't be very good, because he knows the good ones in Barcelona.
Well, fortunately he was wrong. We had some quite good fish and seafood.
For starters we ordered fried calamaris and grilled shrimps, with clearly lots of olive oil and garlic. They were very tasty and fresh.
Usually I don't like calamaris, because they tend to be like rubber and tasteless. These were better, although not the best ones I've had.
For main course we had two types of some fresh white fsh. These were excellent! Nicely seasoned, obviously very fresh fish. There weren't condiments pretty much at all, but I didn't even miss them.
Ordering was a bit hassle, because they don't speak English. I had to show my red smartphone to get red wine. Luckily, one of us spoke English, so the dinner went quite nicely.
Someone wrote they wouldn't have their menu in English, but yesterday this had changed. There actually was a menu in English, even though the list on the wall is in Spanish only.
I will definitely go back the next time in Barcelona.
