“Mussels!”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

If you don't like mussels, this is not the restaurant for you. If you do then, this restaurant does what it says on the tin, mussels done about 20 different ways with chips. My mussels were great, as was my octopus starter, and my almond-cake dessert came with a shot of amaretto or similar, which was a good combination. The cider was good too. Service was fast and friendly.

“Perfect!”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

Perfect combination of price and quality. I really liked the variety of receipts. We tried mussels with Roquefort, with Parmesan, with mustard, with basilico and everything was perfect. Also we tried Sangria with vine and champagne, crema catalana and almond cake - everything is great. Also service is very fast and pleasant despite not all of the waiters speak english guite good. Noone harries you or wait you leave asap. It is good place to spend the time and eat. Unfortunatelly their working time is only 13:00-16:00 and from 20:00.

“Mussels are kings(or queens) here”
Reviewed August 18, 2012 via mobile

Good place for dinner. Mainly locals or Spanish speakers so u know is good. Decent prices and good service.
Dont expect top notch. It's just local, simple and good. Mussels are great. What makes it different is the 25 different sauces u can ask for. Not something u can see everywhere . Wine is cheap and simple . Again not top motchnbu satisfying .
Kids like kids menu. One tie visit for mussels and then go for something different in BCN
