Visited on the 13th August, food was good, great value, paid around 25 pounds per head for a excellent meal, suggest you book, many many people was arriving at the door and no tables were available. Visited with my wife and two daughters pre booked when we was on the uk, the only negative was the chairs could do with some cushions, little hard after sitting for two hours, all the waiters speak great English and they have menus in English, a great night and a good restaurant, and would go back again,,worth a visit...

Dear Rafoo, thank you very much for your comment! We appreciate your words and share your experience at Elsa and Fred. Each of them encourage us and help us to improve. To decorate our restaurant we look for chairs that keeps with the esthetic we wanted to achieve and we are very happy with the result. When wood is true that might be kind of hard, especially after two hours!. Anyway, we will consider your comments in our internal meetings.

Best Regard and hope to see you again for Elsa and Fred.

Great wine, great food, great service. The atmosphere is perfect: the music, the decoration.

I recommend the croquettes, they couldn't be any better!!

Walking around on our last day in Barcelona we chanced upon this wonderful restaurant in the Gothic Area. A welcoming, large dining/sitting area - comfy chairs and "fire place" - with eclectic decor. The open kitchen area gave it a homely atmosphere. The charming waitress made a couple of valid suggestions from the interesting tapas y platos menu. The plates arrived as a meal, not separately as in most tapas eateries. The salad was inviting, the various flavours were delicate and we enjoyed one of our best meals in Spain. Excellent value for money! If we'd found it earlier during our stay we'd have eaten there frequently

We loved the food and the overall vibe of this little neighborhood spot for tapas y platos. At a table, at the bar or on the sofas, you will have a great time. Do try the pumpkin ravioli! And ask your server for advice from the varied menu--- you will not be disappointed!
