“If its good enough for Jon Bon Jovi and Cesc Fabregas....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

Spanish food, well selected, great wines, great company, and great service by Juan Carlos!
Usual multi-course meal with great choice of food. This was a selection meal rather than a dish each we had: chorizo and black puding, fried artichoke and beautiful local mushrooms, sea bass, crispy lamb off the bone, curds and honey, and quite a few glasses of local wines and spirits.

“Gorria a meat eaters dream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

I have been coming to this Basque Navarran restaurant for 10 years, always have a great meal, was just there May 8- and 10th both nights empty at 10pm and full by 10:30. My waiter Javier has been there 20 plus years and knows the menu. I had Hake fish with clams green peas in a slightly green sauce,also we had the monster veal chop for 52 Euros.Impressive cooking that wows guests at this longtime family-run in Eixample, where “you eat very well; a rustic farmhouse setting and “helpful older waiters make the whole experience memorably enjoyable”, so most feel the steep bill is justified.Will be back every time I come to BCN.

“Poor value in an old fashioned setting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

Based in a cellar this restaurant was recommended by our hotel. The food is very expensive - €25 for monkfish and a similar amount for pork. The place looks quite sumptuous with walls covered by racks of wine bottles but even though it was half full it was devoid of any atmosphere.
