Accidentally stumbled across this little place while looking for somewhere to get a drink and loved it! Not only were the drinks and food delicious but the ambiance was great and so was the service. A little off the beaten path but worth the walk.

Small but perfectly formed. Very relaxed ambience, friendly staff, great food at a reasonable price. Tapas style servings mostly. Ok for vegetarians. Ask about the home made vermouth it is delicious.

Stopped in here because the exterior was so intriguing but were a little disappointed. Many menu items were not available after asking and the prices were a little high.

El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
places that live and breathe such exciting energy
regardless of the time of day. This neighborhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants
