“Dry paella with no flavor”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013 via mobile

I don't know how this place averaged four stars overall. It's a mass production restaurant with average to below average service and certainly below average food. If you do go there anyway, order some daily, fresh grilled fish. That should be ok, it's hard to get it wrong if its fresh. But if you want a memorable meal, try a small restaurant away from this touristy mega area.

“Not that good.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

It was a ok restaurant. The service was ok. The food wasn't really good, but maybe the specialty was paella which isn't what I had... I'm sure there's a lot of better restaurant in Barcelona...

“Get there early.”

We got there around 7:40 p.m. and got in quickly. When we left at around 9:10 p.m. there was a huge line outside.

“Large portions at a good price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

Large portions, decent food at a good price. Dirty floors and flies. Extremely rude service. Paella was decent with a good amount of seafood. Seemed to be a lot of tourists.
