The tapas are really good, especially their own version of patatas bravas, the crunchy aubergine and the calamari! Very affordable (as in a bottle of wine for ~8EUR!) and the place itself is quite nice and only a short walk from Passeig de Gracia.

We ordered the burgers for mains & also desserts. Burger was good but desserts were great. Tiramisu was excellent. Lovely red wine sangria. Good service in large nicely laid out dining room.

Both the restaurant and the menu looked great so we were looking forward to a fabulous meal. Both my selections were off the menu that night but unfortunately no one had told our waitress. My third choice of duck was tough and came with no vegetables. The desserts were ok although nothing to get too excited about. The staff were... More

Had dinner here on our last night and enjoyed a tasty meal. I had the calamari, the portion was massive, followed by grilled prawns. All very delicious and reasonably priced.

A large number of friends had dinner tonight with a variety of special requests and the staff did very well. Different folks rated their meals from average to good. Mine, the Iberian pork with tomato chutney, was excellent. Nice place for a date. House wine was just okay.

My partner and I lunched here on Wednesday 28th. It was about 3.0pm and there was a small queue, but we were quickly seated. The place was busy, some working lunches in progress, many just having a lunchbreak by the look of it. Service was prompt and helpful.As it was late two of the dishes we wanted had gone. But...

A spacious restaurant, close to the nightlife. You can easily find a table for many people, perfect for a cosy dinner. Tapas to start, patatas bravas and fried squids, and I had a good oven cooked dorada fish. Very affordable bill.

Excellent value considering central location. A dozen of us dining fairly late and the food was excellent considering (we didn't pre-book). I would certainly recommend this place and go back there when I'm next in Barcelona. Portion sizes and wine also fantastic.

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
