“Great Catalan dishes for reasonable price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2012

I have dinnered here for a couple of times in the last 10 years (every trip I go to Barcelona), and I must say that the food has always been very fresh, tasty and varied. They are very tolerant for solo visitor, as well as a nice place for couples. Would go back any time.

“A really nice restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2012

This little place is in the Gothic Quarter. It features Catalon foods that are well prepared and tasty. We had a ham, pasta and cheese dish that was wonderful - a really upscale Mac and Cheese. Very reasonable prices and good service.

“Preheated meals, but some of them were not bad”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2011

We came there for menu del dia and chose rabbit with snails, ribs, tuna salad and pasta with ham. Pasta was cold, the ribs were barely heated. However, the tuna salad was great, and the rabbit was tender. They include a bottle of wine per 2 people (or a small beer per person) which is never bad. The dessert was fruit (banana) and pastry with chocolate and cream.

“Very nice restaurant - good value and atmosphere!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2011

On the walk down from the Ramblas toward the sea, we tried to reach another restaurant that was closed and came here instead - did not regret it!

The lunch menu provided excellent value with quite good food. A bean and fish salad and spinach soup were memorable first dishes and a chicken with vegetable and veal were memorable main dishes.
