Delicious patatas bravas, good local wines, lovely cheese, in fact all tapas dishes we had were excellent, the restaurant isn't big - we came first, around 8pm and by 9pm it was packed (mainly with families), it's a bit dark and not spacious but this...More

Good food first and foremost! Small and a little pushed for place. Prices are decent, but nothing special. Used to have great pate's, but they are gone now...

This was my and my wife's second time in 5 years as we visited this lovely restaurant and it was as good as we remembered it. It has my deepest and best recommendations if you want to eat tapas, cheese and enjoy good wines.

This place had it all - lovely live music outdoors, great service, delicious food, and the best sangria I had in all of Spain. All for a very reasonable price. Can't wait to go back and try it again.

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
