“1st Night Eating Out in Barcelona”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

Friendly staff & the cafe was busy with locals, so must be OK we thought.

After deciding to visit this cafe, the waiter helped us by giving us the English menu, and also recommending his choice.

As my wife is vegetarian, the waiter was a great help.

Meal was good, and the waiter even came back with a free Baileys on the house.

Total Bill was 35 Euros (2 drinks / 2 Mains & 2 deserts)

“Great Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

Stopped here for tapas on the last night of our trip to Barcelona. Great atmosphere and very welcoming staff. Was given recommendations for both food and wine and I have to say that it was all excellent. Lots of locals in eating (and thoroughly enjoying themselves too). Good prices and well worth a visit if you happen to be in the area.

“Fantastic staff, great food and drinks, highly recommended!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We stayed at the hotel opposite (NH Master). Had drinks here most nights we stayed. Staff were very generous, free food (potato cake) and drinks (home made super strength sangria). Would definitely return if visiting Barcelona again.

“Best Paella”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

We were recommended to this restaurant by a local couple whom we met, whilst we were all looking at another restaurant's menu. They suggested this restaurant and they recommended seafood Paella which we ordered and thoroughly enjoyed.
Service was wonderful, very friendly and full of local people.
Great value for money too

“What a great little place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

I have just come back from a visit to Barcelona for my Dad's 60th birthday and had to write a review about this place.
Not only is Christian and his staff AMAZING the food is delicious and the prices are very good.
We were made to feel like locals. The atmosphere is great very night and we often ended up here before going home.
The tapas is fab and the sangria will knock you off your feet!!
Thanks to all the staff there for making our trip so great.
