“Don't Miss This One!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

Whenever we are lucky enough to return to Barcelona, we eat most of our meals at this restaurant! The staff is friendly, engaging & helpful. One waiter is particularly funny & joked with us throughout the nights. The pork ribs are absolutely divine. (But don't miss the iberian sausage, bravas, asparagus tempura, chocolate cream, actually you can't really go wrong.) On our last weekend trip, we ate there 3 times and ordered the ribs repeatedly! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this restaurant! If I needed anymore of a reason to move to Barcelona, this restaurant would seal the deal.

“Best tapas bar in Barcelona”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

First and last restaurant this trip to Barcelona and last. Heaven on a plate, reasonable prices, friendly staff with good english.

Can not recommend highly enough. Ribs must be tried! You might need to book, which you can dononline, but they are now open at lunchtime too.

Combine with trip to picasso museum, placa del rei and gothic quarter.

Yum. Going back again to try the new menu which starts this week!

“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.
