“Our Favorite Restaurant in Barcelona”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

With great food at reasonable prices, this was our favorite restaurant in Barcelona. We ordered mostly off their specials menu, which was written in English on the chalkboard. Most all tapas were excellent, but highly recommend the meat and potato bomb, pork rib with honey and mustard, and if on the specials menu, the small fried fish and Iberian secret. Bread pudding for dessert was also fantastic.

“Amazing ribs and dessert!!”
Reviewed April 24, 2013

Great spot to go after visiting Picasso museum. Must try the honey-mustard ribs. I literally licked the sauce off my plate. Squid stuffed with grilled Catalan vegetables (peppers, zucchini, eggplant) so fresh, tender and delicious. Also there is this Catalunyan dessert similar to a Crème Brule that they do an amazing job with. It's much lighter, and fluffier but still amazing!

“Good lunch spot after visiting the Picasso Museum”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

My husband and I went here for lunch after visiting the Picasso Museum (which is right down the street). We shared an Iberian ham plate, Manchego cheese plate, bacalao fritters, grilled vegetables, and pan con tomate. The food was definitely prepared with love (we were literally sitting right next to the tiny kitchen, so we could see everything being made) and nice quality ingredients. We enjoyed the meal so much that we even tried a dessert - chocolate cream with olive oil and sea salt - like everything else we tried this was also delicious!

“Well worth a visit and good value.”
Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

Given this tapas restaurant as a recommendation from the manager of another restaurant we visited. The recommendation came good. We didn't expect to get in on a Sunday evening but just before 8pm we got seated right away. 30 mins later and it was waiting time. All tapas' were reasonably priced as were the wine beer and coffee. Difficult to fault in any department including the service I'm sure there are a few better but definitely many more much worse for sure.

“Best tapas in Barcelona”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

We visited in September 2012 (twice) and booked again this year. Beef cheeks were not available the first night but were a hit on our second night. Also loved the 'bomb', Pork ribs (the best), stuffed squid, croquettes, bra as and much more over the two nights. Highly recommended. Price was definitely worth it. We made reservation before our arrival by email.
