We went for the odd ambient but didn't saw nothing really outstanding.
We seated ourselfs and went to the barmen, the only person we could see, and told them where we where seated.
After many tried with the app we asked the waiter now on the floor for the menu but because we didn't receive any information my wife took a menu and we choose with the help of my phone light because of the lack of it.
After a good 20 minutes the waiter came and told me to reduce the brightness of the phone because of the ambient and took the order, told us right away that we needed to pay now in a dry and sharp way.
Because the order was done I decreased the light and after a couple of minutes a loud noise of empty bottles being thrown by that same waiter right next to my table made the ambient a lot better.
The food came and we receive the 2 starters and my sandwich but missed my wife hamburger.
The starters where nice but the sandwich was dry.
I started eating because I was starving and my wife is a slow eater anyway, but I got to the middle of the sandwich and thought I should wait.
After a fair amout of time the hamburger came and the bread was hard and the chips were all different sizes and dry without flavour.

Really a awful experience and I hope no one goes through the same experience.

We found out about this bar from our friend who loved it as visited it years ago. It looked very very tacky and reminded me Rain forest cafe in Disney but on far lower scale. The service was slow and it was generally very dark inside. There are far better place in Barcelona then this bar which passed it sale by date.

Absolutely beautiful place but don’t hope to be served for at least 30 minutes. They rudely tell you to use the app - which doesn’t work and when you question they just repeat the Wi-Fi code! Eventually they took our order and we got drinks but two of our party ordered food. One came relatively quickly but the other had to wait nearly an hour and staff were not remotely interested! The toilets are coded entry and yet there was dirty toilet paper (excrement) all over the floor and the handle fell off the other toilet door locking a poor lady inside who was distraught! It was a little busy but not so much so that the service should not have been able to cope - but they were just not interested!

Decided to have lunch here after a couple of recommendations. Staff ignored us when we walked in, had to find our own table. Waitress eventually came to take our drinks order. Came back with our drinks and asked us to pay for them before we could order our food which we thought was unusual but we obliged. We then ordered food, which came fairly quickly. Not even half way through our food the waitress came back and interrupted us asking us to pay for our food. We politely asked her to come back when we had finished eating. She asked again for us to pay, so we refused until we had finished. Meal finished, we paid leaving no tip. Our tip, don’t go, it’s nothing special, food average, place far too dark to see properly and rude staff.

The staff doesn't know English (as most in Barcelona) , it has a weird effect with thunder-like lights and sounds for a little while, but most of the time they don't play any music. Prices are great and the theme is interesting, but I wouldn't stay for more than an hour. Maybe it's preffered for coffee rather than drinks

Visited this pub on a recommendation from a friend. Its across from wax museum stand on las ramblas. Located down an alleyway. Its absolutely beautiful inside & kids would love it. It's like a magic fairy garden with trees lining the whole pub. Cute little tables & chairs too. Great selection of drinks. Really cool light show too with thunder & lightening. A pub not to be missed.

Fun bar. Has a bit of a show so it's like Rainforest Cafe but for adults. It's down a little side street and the inside is very laidback. Probably gets busier later but we had no problem finding sitting in any of its three rooms.
The drinks are nothing unusual...mojitos, margaritas, cosmos. But the atmosphere is fun for people watching.

The concept is really fun: cheap drinks in the middle of a fairy forest. But it has become more of a family attraction and there are many families present which takes away the “bar fun” out of it.

This is a fairy land style bar located just of las ramblas by the wax museum. Think rain forest cafe. Kinda fun environment. A good stop for a drink after the walk down the street. The AC felt great :)
