“Amazing Value Lunch, Great Terrace, DJs on Some nights”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

Ate here twice. First for a set price lunch €9.60 - Drink, 3 courses & bread. Everything was superb, tasty risotto, fish & cake!! Just off the Ramblas in a peaceful square, so no traffic, Sunny terrace, yellow blossom rained down......there does however seems to be a nearby bench attracting a crowd of drunks, but they kept their distance from the restaurant. It is advisable to keep you bag on your lap when eating outside like the locals do. We came back at 21.00 hours on Saturday evening with a party of 8 hens. You can not book a table on the terrace so having pre-booked they took us to a table inside & it was absolutely empty! We did ask to be moved to a table outside if it became available but this didn't happen although I understand that this may have been difficult for a group of our size. However an hour later it was full and the atmosphere better. A chef came out of the kitchen to do magic tricks which was good fun & a nice touch. I booked this place because from other reviews I thought it would turn into a bar with DJ's but this did not happen and a waitress advised us that DJs weren't on that night & to check out their program of events. The service was slow but friendly and the food and drinks were good. The bar looked cool & funky but shame about the DJs not playing we would have stayed longer if they had. I would recommend this place but try to sit on the terrace instead of inside.

“Evening drinks in square.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013 via mobile

We went here on a Tuesday night around midnight because the concierge said it would be "animated". It was not that but it was very enjoyable. Waitress new wine list well. Atmosphere was fantastic. Not sure if Tuesday is a dead night but it never got lively despite patio being full of people. This is not a club but is a good place to eat and drink.

“Best Place in Barcelona”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

This is my favourite restaurant in Barcelona, its in a quiet square just off the ramblas, the Sangria is lovely and the food is brilliant, the staff are really nice.... so nice they even chased a man that stole a woman's bag and got it back for her!. The restaurant does get busy, so its best to get there before 8 to get a table outside. Every thing is really reasonably priced.
Now I am back at work I fund myself day dreaming about sitting in the square outside this place... so its defo left a fantastic impression on me!

“Wonderful Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013 via mobile

We had the menu del dia on a pleasant after afternoon. The wine, salad and sea bass were excellent. It's a great little quiet plaza right off the busy ramblas, very nice atmosphere.

“No cocktails!?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013 via mobile

Cheap drinks, staff aren't the friendliest; went for cocktails originally and the waiter said they don't do them because that particular bar man wasn't there? Wasn't good nor bad really, the interior is nice.
