“Really nice surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013 via mobile

Traditional catalan kitchen in a small side street just off Born. Best navajas I have ever eaten and all fish dishes were excellent. Do listen to the waiter for specials of the day. Good value for money but the interior is quite hideous.

“Truly superior cuisine - do listen to waiters & try "classics"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

Very, very good food and very friendly, helpful service in an environment that is nicely designed and attractive while remaining low-key. Highly recommend it.

“fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

Located in quiet and not attractive street, just behind the railway station. We arrived there on 20:30, and for some time we were the only guests in the room, but after 9pm the place started to be busy, mostly with locals, looks like they really appreciate the place. The atmosphere in the room was informal and kind of family type. The owner and maître does not speak English but I could communicate with him in Italian; this helped a lot. For starters we took wild asparagus, with foie gras, very delicate and light, and carpaccio, pretty good. For the main dish, the chief recommended tuna fish, smoked and lightly grilled it was just fantastic, absolutely georgeous. Also veal steak, taken by my partner was great. For the dessert we took three kind of chocolate: black, white and milk, wow! it was really something. Clearly, our best culinary experience in Barcelona, hotly recommended

“A Star in Barcelona!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013 via mobile

I came to this restaurant with my family for lunch on the day of my birthday and it could not have been a better present! The food is of really good quality, fresh ingredients and everything prepared by owners of the place. We had starter, main and dessert, wine and cava and out of a party of 7 nobody complaint of feeling too full or still be hungry. The amount of food was just perfect. We also got served by the owner of the place and he shows his passion for food and make sure that the clientele is happy. Prices are very reasonable, definitely worth the visit!!
