“Drinks cheap, food nice but staff need a personality transplant.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

We went here a couple of times during our recent stay in Barcelona. The reason we went twice was to see if the young girl who works there was any happier the second time around......No.....she was well and truly miserable to the point that we sang 'Smile though your heart is breaking' to her when we payed....she never lifted her head. She really is in the wrong job. Anyway, the drinks were cheap. We had patatas bravas which was nice. The other food looked nice which was being served to the other tables. I would recommend going, just to be shocked at how miserable somebody can actually be who works in the hospitality industry. There would be only one tip I would give her though and it wouldn't be monetary.

“Small treasure!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

We found this nice small restaurant by accident. We took dinner at 14.00h, quick service and good food for a very reasonable price. Many local people of all ages. The waiters are very helpful and kind, and take their time for you, even if they're busy!

“Quick, Delicious and Cheap”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

We stumbled in here looking for a light supper and were delighted with what we found. It's a small, no-nonsense restaurant serving tapas and sandwiches. When we had trouble with the menu, the waiter sent out what are probably local favorites and we loved them all, especially the Iberian ham. They have a TA sticker on the window which we didn't notice until we were leaving. We tried to return on Columbus Day but they were closed for the holiday. Recommend!
