Food is delicious, the ravioli looks good but we went for the Tasting menu which was a great experience. So much food, dish after dish of Italian and Spanish style Tapas. Setting is lovely in old stone cellar. Staff are excellent.

When I was going into the restaurant a group of people was going out and I could only hear them saying "It's extremely good". After having experienced by myself, I can only say that this is completely accurate. Looking forward to go back!

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

There isn't a dress code, I think. I went in wearing jeggings, but this isn't a very formal restaurant. In fact, some ladies wearing shorts when I was there.
