“Miguel is a real character.......”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

Very personal level of service, lead by the owner Miguel Yepes. The restaurant is set out in a very marine theme, very comfortable, nice wines, and good quality food. Its a little bit pricey.....but the food is good. Judge for yourself.....at the very least you will enjoy seeing the owner in action....

“Overpriced and Underwhelming”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

While staying in Castelldefels for Mobile World Congress, my work team got reeled in by the billboard. I had my doubts from the beginning.

Way overpriced for basic Spanish cuisine. I really don't understand what you're paying for at this restaurant--maybe the billboard?

Lobster and avocado salad, for instance, was so skimpy and weakly prepared that I laughed at the price tag (about $50 U.S.).

Paella was average and typical. Definitely nothing gourmet, and it was way too salty.

Oysters were excellent, but again, way too expensive for oysters, and there was no special presentation. $90 for some anemic lobster?

The wine we had was expensive, but outstanding: Remírez de Ganuza 2002 Reserva Tempranillo (Rioja)

Deserts, from what I gathered, were very good.

Service was good, but again nothing spectacular and nothing that justified the bloated prices.

With so many excellent, better-priced, more creative restaurants in Castelldefels, I won't be dining at this one again.

“Overpriced chaotic service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

Definetely overpriced , pretending to be an upscale venue while the staff is not trained to the task. Questionable hygenic practices. My wife got sick.
