Great food, reasonable prices and a good atmosphere in a family run traditional restaurant, service can be a little slow, however food is cooked to order and done properly...

We were taken to this restaurant for a friend's birthday and were treated to a catalan meal of exceptional quality, including some wonderful tapas style starters. The staff were enthusiastic and attentive and we would strongly recommend this restaurant

I tried pig cheek with a plate of embutidos to start. Both were excellent and the house wine is good too. The set menus are really good value, starting at €12,50 you really can't go wrong.

Very friendly owners who go out of their way to make your visit enjoyable. We saw the reviews here and sought this one out. The portions are very generous and taste great. I would encourage all those that stick with chips and beans to live a little and try this one.
