“Amazing find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2014

We fell upon this tiny restaurant in Gracia thanks to favourable reviews on Google maps. It looks totally unprepossessing from the street, but once through the door we were welcomed as old friends by the amazing lady owner, who sat us at the bar, instantly provided water and (free) bread and olives, and later took the time to talk us through the Catalan menu. I ordered a pork dish, and she warned me that it was very fatty, in the Catalan style. When it arrived, it was way too fatty for my liking, and when the owner saw my reaction, it was whisked away and replaced, free of charge, with another dish. The quality of the food was amazing, and the welcome and service from the (slightly bonkers) owner was fantastic. If only it were closer to the centre of Barcelona (and easier to find!) we would have gone back in a heartbeat.

“Best experience of the weekend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2014

Stumbled across this little restaurant purely by chance as we wandered down the streets from Parc Guell. So glad we did as it was the find of the weekend. The staff are lovely and friendly and took the time to go through the spanish menu with you. The food was hot, tasty and fresh. The fish balls were a big hit! Order two portions as one just won't be enough :o)

I would definitely recommend this place if you are in the area, a few hours will easily go by while you soak up the atmosphere and traditional spanish food and drink.

“AMAZING!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2013

Very nice place.
Not fancy at all, but warm, welcoming and very very nice.
The menu is in Catalan only, and the waitress is very very nice and translates everything.
The waitress is purely a professional as she gives excellent recommendation and great explanations.
lunch for two which included 6 tapas dishes, wines and desserts cost ~40 euros (include service).
It's a must-visit place for foodies! We will definitely come back!

“The best restaurant in Barcelona”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2013

My friends invited us for dinner at this place and came to be one of my best experiences from a culinary perspective. The food is original and delicious. They made the effort to provide you with the best and the water is free!
