“Good Food and Good Service and a Fine Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

Enjoyed our Tapas for dinner and they were very nice to us. We went with a 16 prix fix and the food was enough if your are not a big eater. I thought the food was very tasty and was a good value. Understand like most places tourist visit there is a bit of a touristy feel to the restaurant but I wasn't disappointed in the experience

“the pastries are works of art”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

This was right around the corner from our B&B. We were attracted by the beautiful pastries. My husband is a chef and he was also very taken with the beauty of these little individual cakes. We decided to come back later for dinner specifically to try these beautiful works of art. We each had a different cake and they were as good as they were good to look at. I loved all of Barcelona, but these really made a very lasting impression on all of us. Still wondering how they do that bright orange metallic icing/glaze!

“Fancy take on tapas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013 via mobile

After enjoying the local tapas, we decided to try Bubo for lunch. They had a prix fixe for 16 euros per person that includes patatas bravas, meats, cheese, a cool take on pan con tomate, tortilla espanola and a BEAUTIFUL cake (one per person.) Everything was very delicious and a different take on tapas.

“Special tapas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

The tapas is a little different with traditional. The service is just great and food is amazing. The dessert is also good.

“Lovely food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

If you need a break this is the place to go. We visited the restaurant twice and both times were perfect. The staff is very friendly and relaxed, so you quickly surrender to let yourself take a break. Took the waitors advice instead of my own pick from the menu and on both occasions I tasted something I hadn't tasted before - and it was deliciuos. Especially the warm eggplant-salat with goatcheese, pinenuts, tahin, beautifull plated with flowers was a delight. My friend had the burger, and he was very very pleased - ordered it both times. We can only recommend this restaurant.
