“This is the first time I eat three days in a row in the same restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2013

While staying in Barcelona for business for a 4-day period, I discovered this restaurant by chance on Monday. It was so good that I decided to repeat the experiment on Tuesday and Wednesday.
I recommend the restaurant both for flavoured tapas and hospitality from the staff, as well as reasonable prices. There I also tried the very good Barcelona beer.
Enjoy!

“Not as good as we hoped for”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2013 via mobile

We visited this restaurant twice during our trip to Barcelona. The first time we had seafood paella, unfortunately it was very greasy, and did not taste very good. The second time around we opted for tapas, those were better than the paella, but still not top notch. Service is friendly enough, but does not make up for the lower quality of the food. There are better, and considerably better priced restaurants not to far away.

“All meats in their menu have been good”

red wine which were advised to me were perfect. Tapas were good. Paella with seafood was also great. So, finally, all things my family tested there were good!!!!

“Excellent Place with excellent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2013

Not only were the tapas there delicious and acceptably priced, but we also had some paella that was extremely delicious! The service was very welcoming and good even though we had lunch quite late, in between Spanish lunch and quite far from Spanish dinner time. Staff was friendly, recommended meals and drinks that were very much to our liking. One of the best places we ate in Barcelona.

“Would love to return”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2013

Four of us enjoyed delicious Tapas enjoying the lovely surroundings and friendly, helpful staff. Sadly the evening involved someone trying to steal my friend's handbag but the staff, especially Jose, were superb. All of us would like to return for another meal as soon as possible!
