“Superb lounge bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

This place blows away the other central Barcelona lounge bars/tapas joints. Superb, reasonably priced, fresh food from an interesting and well thought out menu. The staff are really charming, befitting the laid back Indian theme. Their cocktails are the best . Extensive and extremely tasty selection with awesome mojitos for only 5.90. If you love strawberries (and who doesn't?) you really must try the Fresita. Simply delicious. A real hidden gem of a place!

“Should have stayed longer!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

Worth going off the main road for this one! The passage looks a bit dead but just 20 feet away there is this gem.
It was quiet but luxurious, we could laze back in the eastern-style setting on some cushions. A beanbag would have made the experience complete!

We only stayed for a glass of wine and a snack but in hindsight wish we had sampled the vast and appetizing menu. The wine was very nice and reasonably priced, and shared the ‘cheese bombs’ but I could honestly have had one to myself and more – yum!

The bartender was really friendly and brought over all our food and drink. Highly recommended – plus lots of choice if you’re vegetarian!

“A Gem not to be missed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

We are staying near this establishment and walked in for some Tapas. We found a wonderful venue that should not be missed, very friendly service, excellent choices, excellent suggestions, overall above excellent.

The Spicy Ham with brie and honey, was above outstanding, beautiful presentation, a melding of flavors one can not describe. I hope to return tomorrow night for this delight alone.
