“best croissants!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2014

Right out of the oven! Could not be fresher or tastier! And right next to the Boqueria and off the Ramblas.

Amazing taste, everything was excellent !

“Absolutely delicious!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2014

We just stopped for a quick coffee (delicious) and just had to try one of their many pastries. We shared a 'Cremadet' (caramelised puff pastry filled with custard) and we wanted more! It was absolutely amazing, the pastry was light, the custard was silky and it wasn't heavy or sickly sweet. So far the best coffee in Barcelona.

“Typical Beach Tourist Restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2014

This restaurant was recommended to us by a charming Julia Tours guide. The paella was uninspired, the service was average and the sangria had a distinctive licoracy flavor. The baby squid was excellently prepared but came with no sauce. All in all, we felt that we could do better in this beautiful seaside setting.
