We chose this restaurant as in a lovely square just off the Ramblas... we ordered a selection of tapas and 2 Mojitos. The Mojitos were like lime juice with a bit of ice in the top and a sprig of mint, not great... Our food order came out and wasn't what we asked for, 2 of the 5 tapas were... More

Free glass of cava to finish meal. We were charged for olives not delivered. When the bill was presented a hand written addition of 10%... More

In the corner of Placa Reial, so a bit secluded. Average prices for mediocre food. They grab you from the Placa and do have tables outside. Drinks are standard pricing for the area, we ordered two tapas dishes, cod fritters, which were greasy and drunken prawns, which were small shrimp in a tasteless sauce.

Really lovely food, unexpectedly cheap as it appeared i was given a discount (maybe because it was mid week?) free cava with the bill which was a nice touch and really friendly staff.

We picked here for a casual lunch and ended up spending most of the afternoon here. Set in a beautiful and lovely square, with fabulous food, great service and a wonderful atmosphere - what more could you want? An afternoon very well spent!

Sangría glass was large and filled to the top, and was tasty and mojito was great but average USA size. Tapas were tasty, we had the garlic shrimp, Spanish omelette and chicken wings with honey and cayenne pepper. The chicken and veggies paella was really good. Street performers tableside which was cool but they will ask for donations. So if... More

We stopped here for lunch whilst exploring the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona as the location was beautiful. We got 3 tapas dishes between two of us which were patatas bravas, chorizo in red wine and Catalan bread. The portion sizes were perfect and the patatas bravas were amazing! For 3 tapas and 2 soft drinks the bill came to less... More

Dis-honest staff! We went as family with one person allergy to cheese. They agreed to vege pizza without cheese and then brought with cheese. After complaining they just did not bring the pizza and refused by time rest of us has eaten. Bad service and no moral standards when questioned why they refused what we ordered. They will lure you... More

The food was delicious and traiditonal! So far the best we had in barcelona. I'd recommend it:) the restaurant is placed in a internal courtyard which creates a very nice atmosphere. The staff is also very friendly.

Thank raviolitante
