We dropped in here as our preferred restaurant was closed (Monday) it started out well, ordered 2 glasses of cava while we perused the menu - all very good so far . Ordered a selection of tapas including a platter of seafood - we were horrified to discover that this contained ham croquettes ! My good friend and guest is Muslim , I don't need to explain . We let this go and tried the battered prawns, they were peeled, coated in a beautiful savoury batter but were not de- veined ! - for those of you who do not eat prawns, this is the black, waste disposal line that can easily be removed, but if not can leave a disgusting taste .
We pointed this out to the waitress who seemed dis-interested but said she would tell the chef !!
On finishing our meal, I asked for the bill, paid cash, did not leave a tip as service was not good, asked for a receipt and iiran into the brick wall that was the manageress ! She refused to issue receipt, said the bill would have to do me- I asked my fellow diners if anyone knew the word for receipt and they told me that I could only get a receipt if I paid by card !!
Awful experience - just don't go here, there are so many good restaurants in Barcelona it would be a shame to have our visit clouded by this place.
Thankfully our night was rescued by the lovely guys in the local Alimintari on the left as we made our way back to the excellent Hotel Universal Barcelona.
