“Great tapas, good service and very reasonable. Delicious wine!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013 via mobile

Lovely restaurant tucked away just back from the main road. Delicious steak and mushroom tapas, brilliant tortilla and beautiful foie grad and iberico ham with rocket and mango bruschettas.
Definitely recommended!

“Great food. Amazing value!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013 via mobile

This is a real gem of a restaurant! None of the dishes disappointed. The best thing is the size of the dishes, you could order 2 - 3 tapas for around €5 each, which can be enough for a starter and main course. And a large glass of good wine is about €2.50. The food, service, and atmosphere make you feel like you're paying €100 for a dinner for 2 instead of around €40. Would thoroughly recommend this restaurant to anyone. On a budget or not..

“Great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Went here based on reviews and were not disappointed! Loved the steak chimichurri, and bread with tomato. Food was quick, great selection, and the kids loved trying the little bites. We enjoyed everything. Service was great but not too stiff. More informal and relaxed, as it Should be.

“Great performance price ratio”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

I visited this restaurant with couple of my friends, and it was really pleasing environment. The food was perfect, patatas bravas, meats are all perfect. It was sad that we found this restaurant at the last day of our trip, but it will the first if I come back to Barcelona. It might be a little bit hard to find its place, but dont hesitate to ask to local people. This restaurant has both local cuisine and world dishes and serves it with very comparable price.
