Good selection of wines with moderate prices. The only downside of the place was the service, who almost showed us the exit despite having ordered a bottle of wine 10 minutes before… Also the waiters do not know what are the food they are serving...
Tartar is really good and desserts, despite not very good looking, are tasty,

We stumbled upon this wonderful restaurant located right beside the Basilica Santa Maria. The outside terrace is perfectly located with a direct view of the basilica.

Both the food and service were excellent. We started with salads (smoked salmon and Italian) followed by a cheese fondue; a house specialty.The fondue was the perfect portion and combination of cheeses.

I definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting the city.

It was great. Last night in Spain. The setting is quite something sitting in the night shadows of the basilica. We had an amazing pasta with pear and cheese as truffles dish that was memorable.also had a D.O. (Denominacion Origine) cheese ith quinces which was really good. This is a great dining experience and I highly recommend it.

The location was awesome. To be at a restaurant with the name purgatory right behind the church! The food was good typical Catalan. The wine was delicious and the service very friendly. A very good 'away from the crowd' inside tip! Eat with the locals. You have to try the pan de tomate and cheese variety...
