“Cosy atmosphere and yummy little dishes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

We sought out this little place that was not easy to find but so worth the effort. It is in a lovely back alley in the old town with cosy decor and oh so welcoming. We loved the creamy bucatini cheese, the escalivada and the salmon tartare We had all arrived in Barcelona that day and wanted an early night and a light snack Perfect The wine was delicious even if a little on the high price side but the food extremely reasonable for the quality Highly recommended and full marks for the great service

“Top Tapas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

Tucked away in the Gothic Quarter, not too far from La Rambla, seek out this place, the food was amazing! Very friendly service, great atmosphere in a small intimate setting, a must for those who like their tapas.

“Worth the hunt”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

It's a bit tricky to get here and Google maps will mislead you to several different places. But it's worth the hunt. The food and the cocktails were excellent, and the service was very accommodating and friendly. Highlights included a drink made with Pisca(?) that tasted like a French 75 with a twist, some kind of regional variant of mozzarella that was creamier and tastier, and tangine that melted in your mouth. Also, don't hesitate to try the cured cow -- sounds odd but it's almost as wonderful as jamon iberico or serrano. And don't skip out on dessert.

“Last night in Barcellona”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013 via mobile

Terrific spot - but easy to miss. Forget about ordering your food - let Luis do it for you. Very accomodating - like family. I wholeheatedly would say - on a night you are looking to escape las rombas - head to Tacon Rojo!
