“Mixed Feelings”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013 via mobile

Absolutely wonderful, wonderful food. My sister and I chose to dine here only on the advise of other TripAdvisor reviews and we couldn't have been happier with the food.
The service was, unfortunately, another story. We sat at the bar and all servers were extremely pleasant with the exception of one male bartender/waiter. He made sideways comments the whole evening, noting that "only the tourists order the sangria, we would NEVER touch the stuff". He commented this AS he was making our batch. Moving forward with the evening, the snide remarks continued making us feel that we should be emvarassed to be tourists in the city.
I would love to suggest this restaurant to other visitors, but tread lightly I suppose,

“Delicious food; Anti Tourist attitude”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013 via mobile

Visiting Barcelona with my sister and we came to this restauraunt after hearing how good the food was. True to the word, the food was delicious. Our waiter, however, was not a fan of tourists. After ordering a pitcher of Sangria (we are in Spain!), he proceeded to tell us (without us asking for his opinion) how Sangria was only a tourist thing and how 'No Spainard will ever touch this stuff'. Needless to say we were a bit embarassed to have been called out and the experience left quite a bad impression

“Despite tourist location, true quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

I was recommended to go here by a colleague in Barcelona and it absolutely lived up to her recommendation. Food was delicious: favourite would have to be the octopus with chickpeas. It was a calm atmosphere and personal service. Highly recommended.

“Shockingly good tapas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013 via mobile

Really wonderful tapas bar with outstanding talent displayed in the kitchen, each dish that arrived was seemingly better than the one previous. When our initial order had been delivered and devoured we were compelled to ask for the menu and order (many) more dishes to try. Particular standouts were the skirt steak with chimichurri and the calamari rings fried in ink. Just the simple dish of patatas bravas were so intensely enjoyable here we had to have two of them. One of the best examples of tapas I've experienced, and I've tried many. We'll absolutely be back to do it all again. Highly recommended.
