Try the solomillo with fois. OMG! best piece of meat I have ever eaten. The place is always packed but has great atmosphere and the waiters are cheerful and helpful. Get a white vermut and relax.

Found this gem 10 years ago and revisit every time I return to Barcelona. Top quality ingredients in all dishes served. Nothing fancy; just perfect. The most attentive staff you can wish for in any establisment. Respect & Joy!
