Great looking restaurant and wonderful service. However the food was ok. We ordered 2 platters to share of the octopus with potatoes. The octopus was tough and chewy, inedible. We asked the manager to take them off the bill and they did not. Very disappointing...as the meal was expensive and not very good.More

Food was fair. The shrimp was overcooked and the burger bun was soggy. The carbonara was very good, but otherwise food wasn’t that great unfortunately

We both had a seafood paella & they were so overcooked that the mussels were like little crisps inside. Even the whole dish was black burned. Don’t eat here, the chef must be blind to let these meals leave his kitchen.

Definitely worth a visit. Food was lovely.. ham and potato croquettes starter was delicious, then steak and peppers and salmon and veg both tasted fabulous. Very hot inside so don’t know if they had air con or just not working… but definitely returning for a...second visit while still here.More

We came across this place and decided to give it a go. The food was great (although a little on the greasy side) and a river quickly and hot. The jug of sangria we ordered was fantastic and was half the price of others we’d...seen elsewhere. Reasonable prices, decent food and good service!More

After a long day in barcelona we saw this restaurant and decided to eat here. It was absolutely horrible, they advertise with cocktails outside but they dont serve it, so we ordered wine and a coke zero. The wine came almost directly but we had...to wait for the coke zero because he forget, another thing we didnt really care about, mistakes happen. We ordered a hamburger with fries and salad and the seafood paella. The hamburger came after a while and the server just carelessly put in on the table while passing trough with two other plates with the same dish on it. The paella didnt come until almost 10 minutes later when we started asking about it , again the server forgot I guess. The food was really terrible, a dry hamburger bun and the “fries” served with it was half an uncooked and barely baked potato cut in 4 slices, the salad was a simple salad mix with no dressing at all. After we were done eating the served came up with the salad dressing which he had again forgot. We decided to just go have a bite elsewhere after. We saw other tables getting uncooked food too and alot of it was send back to the kitchen, only to be taken back by an annoyed cook I guess? As for the restaurant it self , the door was right next to the tables so everytime people got in or out there was a cold gust of wind coming in. Not comfortable at all, and when I thought it couldnt get any worse the bartender turned on the tv for a soccer game and turned the volume up so even when you weren’t watching the game you couldn’t talk to each other at all. Keep in mind this was not a sports bar or anything, just a restaurant that at first glance seemed nice. What a waste of time and money. We laughed it off and got out as soon as we could. Can’t believe this place is still in business.More

We ate there twice in the week we were in Barcelona. The best prawns and Paella I had during my week. The aubergine with honey tapas was simple but was the combination worked really well. The fried seafood and fish platter tasted good and felt...fresh. Highly recommend and would definitely go again when in the Barcelona.More

This is a Tourist trap. Please do not make the same mistake my wife and I did today. There are far better places to eat in Barcelona. Horrible service, horrible food. The worst we have had since we started our vacation in Spain a week...ago.More

Tried to order the prix fixe menu and one starter was not as advertised so got sent back the other was fine and tasted okay but the entree-gross. For dinner, not one but two bad entrees. The fish was stinky an inedible and the prawns...were dry and fishy as well. The tapas were mediocre at best. Cannot encourage you enough not to go here.More

The restaurant is fine, but what I want to comment about is the bill. My friend and I both had only 50 Euro notes, so we left 2 of them them with the bill which was just over 60 Euro; I commented to my friend...that we would get back nearly 40 Euro, as he was then thinking about leaving a tip. Unfortunately, they short-changed us by 10 Euro. It would have been easy for us not to notice, except that we had commented on it. I brought this to the attention of the waiter: he apologised and his colleague immediately presented the missing 10 Euro.More
