“Good atmosphere but a bit pricey”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

Nice food but nothing special just good steak. I found a bit on the expensive side compared to other places. Atmosphere is good and three guys come round singing and playing banjos but be warned they then want a tip!

“Wonderful experience”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

This is a restaurant not to be missed if one is in Barcelona. THe atmosphere takes you back to the 19th century but with modern accents. THe food is excellent and the service is wonderful. Have been coming to this restaurant for years and will continue to do so.

“Pricey”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

Good atmosphere, good service and good food, but way overpriced. Guess it was worth it once for the experience, but the food was not worth the price. Very hard to get in to. After several attempts to go without reservations, we finally got the reservations.

“Good atmosphere, quite touristy...”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

A very well-known and 5-generation restaurant in the Barri Gotic. A lot of atmosphere in a long succession of rooms and floors. Been there a long time and caters a lot to tourists. The food is average despite the lengthy menu. My daughter did try snails for the first time and actually liked them. Good appetizers at our table, but very average main dishes, even in their specialties. Price is a little high for Barcelona relative to the food quality, but you do get atmosphere.

“Good food in a traditional place in the heart of old city”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

Good quality traditional catalan food, not only snails (caracoles) but wide range of plates, including traditional cod and other fish and meat (including rabit).
