“Good and cheap mojitos”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2013 via mobile

Service is lacking but the 3.75 euro mojito makes up for it. Did not have food. Mostly people were just having pastry or coffee

“Really good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

We were slightly sceptical after reading the avg reviews but this cosy place turned out to be a delight. Really tasty paella and shrimps. You get your money's worth.

“A mistake”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013

I like to check reviews of places before trying them, but we couldn't find the place I had picked out for the evening and we were tired of walking and hungry... This place was busy, which is usually a good sign, so we wander in for a meal. That was a mistake. The paella was very bland and had little meat. The ambience is awful, with loud chairs constantly scraping against the floor, constant clatter, and bright flourescent lighting. For being in the middle of such a busy area, it had no character. Overall, not a pleasant experience.

“not a fancy place, tapas taste great and prices are reasonable, worth to make a special trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2012

i've been complaining about restaurants in istanbul and in turkey in general for very small portions and high prices. it turns out spain isn't a whole lot better. but definitely better. at least you get enough food after spending some 15$.

the good:
- lots of verities of tapas, pizzas, and paellas, etc.
- prices for tapas run from 2 euros to 8 euros.
- we tried snails, squids, cuttlefish, some shellfish, mashrooms - all good. wanted to try beef tripes but it was sold out
- menu with photos, very helpful
- it was a sunday night, people were lining up to get in at around 8pm - a sign for a good restaurant, bad if you show up late.
- close to metro station jaume i on line 4.

the bad:
- didn't find any
