“Caracoles !!”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

Try the caracoles or enjoy the roasted chicken in a place where the ambiance is top ! Go there with friends and family and enjoy the special environment with open old fashioned kitchen. Food is basic but very tasteful. Authentic although visited by lots of tourists.

“Nice atmosphere but totally overpriced”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

The restaurant is at the heart of Barcelona, rather well known, it offers a rich menu of meat, fish and snails. I tried the fish filet with shrimps and almonds, not so exciting. The fried squids and the serrano starters were fine. The high prices are totally unjustified. I visited the restaurant with a group of friends, despite the nice atmosphere we all considered the meal totally overpriced.

“Great experience”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

This is an amazing venue. From the outside, and indeed once you enter, it would appear that it is a small restaurant with a few tables, when in fact it just goes on and on. There is a wide ranging menu with plenty of choice at reasonable prices. A great find and well worth a visit.

“Lovely, interesting restaurant. A little overpriced”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

The restaurant is beautiful, having to go through the kitchen and up a very narrow and winding staircase to the dining room. Lovely interior which helps create a lovely atmosphere.
The food was really quite expensive with main courses priced around 20-30 euros. It was tasty, but felt to be a little overpriced.

“About as I expected”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

The food fell far short of all other dining experiences in Barcelona. The mussels and bread were certainly disappointing but the evening was fun. It's a great looking spot with small tiled dining rooms and narrow stairways. Lots of interesting pictures to look at the music was very entertaining. I did feel a little rushed.
