First time I had a fish pedicure. This place was so quaint and the staff very attentive. I would recommend this to all. The tired leg massage is wonderful after walking through the city for many days. Afterwards, my calves felt great and I was able to continue on walking without any achy leg muscles.

A friend and I went for a pedicure and manicure. The pedicures were mediocre: they didn't really remove hard skin / looked after the foot pads. The manicures were bad: they filed away too much nail + the nail polish was bad so my friend (after saying a few times it was irregular) had it re-done. Within 1 day the nail polish started to peele off.

One of the worst manicures we had. We do not recommend going there.

After days of walking around the city, this little treatment was great for our feet. We'd always wanted to try Garra Rufa and it was a nice, relaxing experience. Friendly staff and good deal - we got €5 off for paying together.

We didn't need to book, we just walked in and were seen to immediately.

It tickles at first but afterwards it's just relaxing and enjoyable.

While "drifting" through the Barrio Gotico, I stumbled across this cute place by accident and could not have been happier - I did make the mistake to submit myself to the not-so-tender-and knowledgeable ministrations of one of the sleazy Chinese places off La Rambla yesterday and came away with cuts and scrapes....DO NOT GO THERE! This place (I am sitting here with the fish nibbling as you can see in the picture) is not just cheaper but so much cleaner, nicer and friendlier. After a week of walking the city (a LOT of walking), this place is truly a treat!! Laura and her team are amazing!! Thank you sooooooooooo much! All the best and I'll be back!

I went to Rufoo today with my boyfriend more than an hour before they closed and tried to get a 45-minute treatment. There were three workers and only 1 of the 4 chairs were taken by clients. We asked politely if we could use the Groupons we had just purchased and were told that there were not any openings for over a week. The employees were incredibly rude and unwelcoming, repeating that they would not see us even though it was clear that they were completely booked with reservations. We had a week left in Barcelona and they kept insisting they could not see us in that time and they we had to leave. While we were just hoping for walk-in appointments we were taken aback that they could not set up anything in the next full week.

Beyond the unfriendly staff, the salon itself was much smaller than it seemed in pictures and felt very cramped.

Excellent service. Went in as a walk-in and they greeted me with pleasure. I took the pedicure with foot massage and the manicure with polish. The foot treatment with the fish was an amazing and relaxing experience. I almost doze off. The manicure was not that good, because of the old (dry) polish that wouldn't get on as smooth as a new one would. The manicurist went on as if nothing was wrong. I figured she was still in training. All in all just wonderful and reasonably priced.

My husband, teenage daughter and I enjoyed our fish pedicure. At first it is a weird sensation but then you get used to it. The two ladies that attended to us were very nice. We'd do it again.
