“Great hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

The pizza was good and the cannelloni alla sorintina was great. I will say it is different but wonderful. The view is great too. The staff is everything all the other reviews say. Make this a stop when visiting.

“Beautiful view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

This restaurant is difficult to rate. The view and service were great, food was good, but not outstanding. My only complaint was I thought the pizza could have stayed in the oven a couple more minutes, but this may simply be personal preference. Prices are great, only be advised that there is a €2 per person cover charge. Seated on the terrace, you have a million dollar view.

“Standard”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

The setting was lovely and the staff really friendly, great wine recommendation, but i hate to say this was the least enjoyed meal of our trip. We had heard good things about the lasagne so thought we'd try it out. There was no meat and it all swam in a half decent tomato sauce, much like the parmigiana di melanzane starter. I dont want to rubbish any place but we walked feeling we had fallen victim to a tourist trap much like you have going down Las Ramblas.
