My partner and I dined here after flying in late to Barcelona. The waiter was friendly and hospitable. We ordered 4 tapas which were all delicious. The desserts were also very tasty. A great little restaurant.

Amazing food and great service! Be bold and go through the whole tapas menu - you won't need the main courses. ;) Patatas bravas, one of the best things on the menu!

This place has the best patatas bravas ever had. Served very artistically, the sauce on the was on the top and looked like whipped cream, but it was a very garlicky delicious brava sauce. Cuban waiter was good and friendly. The croquettes were good and...More

Came back after a few months, remembering their great "patatas bra as", but I left very disappointed. Neither the bravas nor the croquettes or the "coca" were good, even being not demanding. Hope they improve...

We ordered a calamari "tapa" that costed 5€ which had only 5 calamari...the food is average. We filled up ourselves with bread cause we were hungry with such small portions. Too pricey as well.
