“Very good food and interesting menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

We visited for lunch around 1pm, the restaurant was very quiet but we had read all the positive reviews on Trip Advisor and thought we would give it a try, It is conveniently located close to the Museu Picasso so I'd imagine it gets very busy.
We tried a range of tapas including fried rabbit ribs, stuffed octopus, snails, ham and whitebait. All was amazing, the rabbit and the octopus were my favourite. We had some bread with fresh tomato rubbed on it, which was very nice.
The staff were very helpful and attentive, we had a pitcher of sangria which was really good.
Definatly recomend this restaurant.

“Good but pricey”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013 via mobile

As an expat I like to go to places every once in a while that are featured in the Times and frequented by people who, like me, don't need then authentic Barcelona tapas experience alllll the time as we live here. The food is great and the service excellent. It's a great place to take friends from out of town who refuse to speak in Spanish, no matter how embarrassing that may be...

“Excelent tapas!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Very small, near Picasso Museum - don't worry about the size, this is a very special experience on Barcelona. People there are very nice, we had experienced many many small dishes ( the tapas! ) and was difficult to choose the best. Really recommended.

“My favorite for Tapas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013 via mobile

This was my favorite place for Tapas, great variety, liked everything I had. Favorites were both the foie gras and burger with ham, I love a good burger. These mini burgers were the best I've ever eaten. The stuffed squid, the ribs, the bombs I guess everything. Went twice as we wanted it for our last meal. Tried about 14 items all good. Great atmosphere.
