It's always busy. People must be reading the TripAdvisor posts because when I went there, there was a 30 minute line up with a good number of people checking TripAdvisor on their phones. It is worth the wait. Everything is great. If there is room at the bar area grab a chair. Or is entertaining to watch the staff and... More

Was told this is a great place by the hotel staff. They also stated it is a huge local go-to place so be early and be prepared to wait. We waited, but not too long. Food was really good, not the usual touristy tapas and such. A bit expensive but service and food delivery was fast and adequate. I would... More

Waah!!! Except the waiting time this place is fantastic. From simple dishes like eggs and fries to the fresh seafood everything is amazing. Not to forget the montaditos like grilled shrimps or solomillo and foie or camembert... and the best comes with the bill: really down to earth and affordable. One of the best in Barcelona don't miss it!!

Visited here whilst in Barcelona. What a great restaurant, good service, good menu. Although busy we were seated fairly quickly. I suppose if you wanted to sit outside you would have to wait longer Food was good.

Went here twice during our week in Barcelona in September 2016. It's normally very busy but it's worth waiting for. We went at lunch time and early evening. Prawns in garlic sauce are great, as are potates braves...tried so many dishes. Sometimes the waiters talk too quickly through the dishes of the day - would be helpful if it was... More

We visited barcelona for a weekend and must have eaten here 4-5 times. It is great for breakfast whether you want a quick coffee and pastry at the bar or a more leisurely meal. It has a really authentic feel. Frequented by locals and tourists alike. Be prepared to queue for a table in the evening (up to an hour... More

It is unbelievable how affordable this place is, given the consistently high quality food on offer. Expect to wait upwards of 30 minutes for a table, but it is worth it. Easily my favourite restaurant in Barcelona.

This restaurant was referred by my Hotel and I was not disappointed. Friendly, helpful and knowledgable staff, great food and sangria. Warm and relaxing environment, both outside and inside at the bar, where I sat and met a few people, which is always a bonus when travelling solo. Would definitely revisit when I get back to Barcelona. Thanks to all... More

It's a must in Barcelona. The food is excellent and it is very well located. Very busy so get there early and have a drink until you are called.

My significant other and I had one of the best meals during our trip here. The staff was friendly and very helpful. We were lucky to find a seat at the bar on a late Tuesday evening in September and our bartender, Ruel was so helpful! The food was fantastic! We loved the razor clams and the garlic shrimp. We...

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
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.
