I eat in this restaurant for lunch every day when I am in Barcelona as it is near my office. The food is of a consistent standard. The best dishes are the meat balls and the grilled octopus leg. The food is reasonably priced.

Food is awful here and not particularly cheap. Don’t go here. Calamari is especially poor, like eating a tyre.

The food was the best we had in Barcelona. The staff was friendly and very attentive. We were served by Eric and Innez, outstanding! Would definitely recommend to anyone in and around the Catedral de Barcelona!

Our first night in Barcelona and this restaurant was very close to our hotel and looked cute. But the aero was poor (attitude and slow). We had a garlic shrimp served in a small cast iron pot that was terribly over cooked. I was still...More

We were looking for a place to have dinner after walking the streets, taking in the sights. We were pleasantly surprised on several fronts: the interior decor is very, very nicely done. There are tables for two as well as high back banquet tables. One...More

After lots of walking around gothic quarter it can be hard to decide on a lunch spot. So to save your aching feet my fellow travellers I recommend this restaurant. Beautifully cosy inside with booths you can just sink into. Great choice on menu. I...More
