OMG... The jamon serrano was the best thing we ever tasted, so fresh and delicious. Other tapas were nice as well. Sometimes you have to wait for a table but it is worth the wait!!!!

Did not know what to expect, when we saw the place, and we where a bit sceptic. But the tapas was great and at a very good price. Good service. Would recommend.

On the recommendation of our hotel we went to this restaurant for a "late" dinner. 9:00pm is not late for Spaniards. We just had 5 tapas, from seafood to spicy potatoes, to tomato. Read. Overall it was ok but I must point out this restaurant...More

Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you
enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally
translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes
recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant
atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district,
Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end
international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the
glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best
