I have been here on 2 visits to Barcelona, the first because I read about it somewhere (probably the Lonely Planet guide) during the day as I was on holiday, and the second in the evening as I was working in Barcelona.
The daytime visit was much more interesting as sweets were actually being made, although it is a tiny shop and hence gets very busy. The evening visit was just because we were passing and I recognised it from my first visit. Initially I thought the shop had closed down because it looked very dark & there wasn't much inside, but on closer inspection there were a few people inside, so I ventured in.
I didn't buy anything the first time due to the crowds, so the second time I opted for some passion fruit sweets. The detail on all of the sweets is just amazing, but you do pay for this! However, I waited for about 10 minutes to pay because a couple were at the counter designing some sweets for their wedding. The guy serving them was not the only person in the shop & I thought the staff could have been a bit more attentive, but I guess a big sale like that is more important!
Overall, I'd say the shop is worth a visit if you happen to be in the area during the day, but I wouldn't go out of my way to find it.
