I ate breakfast here. It wasn't bad but it wasn't terrible. The place looks clean and tidy. Nice outside area. The staff were fine. Not overly friendly bit not rude. The breakfast was fine. Bacon was a little cold. The were only 2 small slices of toast. Not enough for your eggs. And the Pancakes were clearly a pre made... More

We sat at our table under a covered area across the road from the cafe but served by them... attention to detail and pleasant english waiters. Food served promptly and was better than expected. An enjoyable place to eat with good views if you like people watching. Deserts were excellent too.

We stopped at this restaurant on a wet day in Barcelona for some lunch and we were not disappointed. The seafood paella was delicious with the seafood casserole also being of very good quality. Friendly, helpful staff. A real gem.

We had a drink here earlier on during our trip & came back for breakfast because the menu looked good (and after several days of eating local cuisine we felt like an English breakfast). The service & food were both fine, the coffee was not particularly nice.

Sat down for breakfast. Catalan breakfast was modest at best, I had better chorizzo from a nearby supermercado, orange juice was too aggressive, coffee was watered down. Do not recommend for breakfast. Get a bottled beer and enjoy the terrace on a sunny day - good for watching the world go by.

Dear Zec, we were very surprised to hear your comment. The Chorizo that we serve is 100% Iberian Corn Ham and we buy it at Iberics La Fuente. The natural juice is provided by Gufresco in Valencia, who uses only fresh oranges, they provides the best 5 stars hotel in Barcelona. Regarding the coffe maybe the person who prepared it,... More

Clean and well maintained place, friendly waiters and food like any other place. Good, but nothing fancy. Good ibericoham, but their "patatas special" was nothing to brag about. Have just tried the tapas, and simple breakfast though, so they might surprice me. Stayed in the apartments above for some nights, so it was very conveniant to visit. Not gonna go... More
