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.
