Delicious variety of tapas that had us spoilt for choice and debating what to choose. We had a god father burger, vegetarian antipasto chicken fajitas salmon cake nachos - all delicious and efficiently served. Good value for money. We chose wine and cocktails to complement our meal.

We turned up, group of 7 and not expecting a table for hours. Luckily for us we waited about 10 minutes! It's a very popular place and you could be waiting a while. The food was amazing and so was the service! Possibly the best brunch we had during our stay! This is a must visit!

This very small spot near our hotel was the first breakfast restaurant we visited during our week in Barcelona. The eggs benedict (multiple ways - crab, florentine, etc.) was wonderful. The eggs, bacon, and toast dish was delicious. And the "American" pancakes and bacon satisfied my 10 year-old son's taste buds. We went back several times and never left disappointed.

Walked by Milk a day ago and looked at the menu. They had a variety of breakfast choices. So today I was in the mood for a "non-typical" breakfast. Huevos Rancheros and Classic Benedict. Both were wonderful and large portions. Plus a very nice Bloody Mary which all made for a great start to the day!!

A relatively small place in the gothic quarter. I had the Shaking Beef (Vietnamese strips of marinated beef with a lime dipping sauce - served with rice) and it was absolutely fantastic. Had a side order of fries too as I was very hungry after a very long exhausting day with very little food. The place was very reasonably priced... More

What a find! Inviting and cheery, with an incredibly warm and engaging staff. The cocktail menu is full of gems - many gin based - with layers of flavor. The "Bees Knees" was a favorite. The cafe menu is brief and inventive with small plate items, entrees and desserts. Highly recommend the godfather burger served with a generous helping of... More

We visited this restaurant after a recommendation from a friend. We visited for an evening meal and got a table straight away. The food was delicious as was the cocktails, and good value for money. Would like to try the Brunch as this also looked good.

Food was outstanding and service friendly. Nice stop when wandering the El Born. Food portions were large. Music was well selected and place had a good vibe in the afternoon.
