Visited this delightful little place on our second day for brunch, it being opposite our hotel, and as a result booked for dinner the following night (as well as breakfast on each of our days!!). Great coffee, food and ambiance. Reasonably priced. Will definitely return!

Excellent food, excellent service and excellent value for money. Nice vibe. Dined here 3 times so that we could work through the menu. Every dish was spot on. Consequently, very popular so strongly advise you book in advance. 5 stars.

El Born / La Ribera
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
