Makes a change in Barcelona, only muscles! Good variety, quality and service. Try their 'Pan con tomate'. Good location.

“Must Love Muscles”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012 via mobile

If you like or love muscles, this is the place for you. Huge portions of delicious fresh muscles for around 8-10€. You can easily share an entree but I'd just get two!

“Mussels and small octopi in sauce”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

The atmosphere is like a tavern's, colours and scents awaking one to the fish and shellfish side of Barcelona. I took mussels with small octopi, in the "salmon"-coloured sauce accompanying them tastily. I thoroughly enjoyed being able to eat my food with my fingers in a place where this is commonplace, and if one is looking for a lively place to eat, this is it. Service is good and quick. It's a place I would come back to for shellfish dishes. In French, we have "brasseries" - sort of pub where easy to eat dishes are served. This would be an equivalent of that.

“Mussels!”
5 of 5 bubbles 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!”
5 of 5 bubbles 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.
