A little bit of research pre-trip turned up this restaurant not too far from where we were staying, and we had an amazing meal for almost unbelievable value. Our hotel managed to book for us (just aswell because they were busy) and we were sat down by really friendly staff and given an English language menu (apart from the specials which required some translation) We chose a bottle of wine and 5 dishes (patatas bravas, calamari, morcilla, tomato bread and starry eggs with chorizo) and every single thing was beautiful. The atmosphere was good fun, service was quick and we couldn't believe when the total bill came out at less than €40. The best food we ate in Barcelona and we'd rush back given the opportunity.

The waitress didn't speak English but she was extremely helpful, positive. The atmosphere was delightful. It's always full, try to reserve or be there earlier. Locals know where to eat obviously ;)

We went on a Saturday afternoon for lunch. Everything was perfect for us. The staff was friendly and helpful. It is a small restaurant, and even it was fully booked the service was smooth and efficient. I strongly suggest patatas bravas (with a handmade and genuine allioli sauce which is very difficult to find in town), croquetas (chicken one) and pescaitos fritos. If you have sweet teeth don’t miss their desserts, especially the lemon pie and torrijas.

Went there as a family of 4 on a Saturday night. Quite empty when we arrived just after opening time but full by the time we left. Initially given a Spanish menu (as my wife said a couple of words in Spanish as we entered) however, the very helpful waitress soon saw us struggling and brought out the English menu, along with helpful suggestions.

We had 7 dishes between us, all extremely good although we wouldn’t go for the bacon chunks again. Patatas Bravas was exceptional as was a pork in bun special (tasted like a pork version of Peking Duck). We had 3 desserts between us with the highlight being the chocolate fondant. Together with a bottle of wine it came to just over 60 euros. Fantastic value. We would definitely return.
