The food here was so delicious. The pasta I had was probably the best pasta I've ever eaten and my partners burger was also amazing. The staff are friendly and speak good English and the decor is cozy. Reasonably priced. Highly recommend.

Thank you so much Nicole. A lovely review. The recipe for the pasta came from my sisters restaurant in Galway, Ireland. I will be sure to let them know how much you enjoyed it. More

Lovely to hear how much you enjoyed our burger. We use brioche buns baked by a local baker and our meat comes from the Boqueria market here in Barcelona. Thank you for the review. More

Great food, great service, lovely vibe, funky decor and happy staff. Could waste a couple of hours chilling here. Shame no time to come back for breakfast.

Excellent little place with lots going on in the surrounding area. Everytime we passed this place it was quite busy so decided to try it ourselves one night when we went out earlier than usual. We were made very welcome and managed to get a cosy wee table next to the bar, the menu offered a good selection with just... More

Came here a couple of times for breakfast which was fantastic, came back for cocktails after the beach which were delicious and dined here several times in the evening, the steak sandwich was delicious. The atmosphere is relaxed and informal, the staff are very friendly and the food is very reasonably priced and international in style. Well worth a visit... More

We went to Milk for brunch, we didn't book , the place was packed and we had to wait outside for a while... TOTALLY WORTH IT! The portions are big everything we tried was great! I wish i had more space in my stomach for the pancakes but i keep that for the next time...

It is a cute cosy place, very charming but busy (due to small size so get there early!) We arrived at 9:30am, and got the... More

Food was very good and enjoyable. Portions are huge (for a girl and probably manageable for a boy)! Staff were friendly and attentive. Also, very popular so best to get there close to opening if you want to grab breakfast without having to wait!
