Tucked away on a side street on the Barri Gothic, this is a lovely locals' tapas bar. Great authentic atmosphere, friendly staff and yummy food. If you're a cheese fan, don't miss the cheese platter - it's to die for.

Tiny little hole in the wall with very good Trip Advisor rating, so we thought we'd try it hoping that it might be a surprise. It wasn't. The staff was very good, but the kitchen was a disappointment. In the end, it's always all about the food.

We happened upon this place after visiting the nearby café where Picasso frequented. What a find, we had a really great and very reasonably priced lunch, all freshly cooked and served by the lovely friendly ladies. They even gave us a free taster plate of the delicious black rice. Couldn't rate it more highly. Fantastic. We will definitely be back.

Had a late lunch here, the place was almost full. The usual "Menu del dia" daily menu had less available choices than in a lot of places, but everything we tried was really delicious. The drinks were included in the price, even the second beer I asked for. Really good value for the level of food.
Just make sure you go there between 8:00 and 17:00 as they are closed in the evening!

I was there 5 nights this was best meal we had. Impeccable service, you can tell its great because its full of locals at lunchtime. The salad with raisins and goat cheese was the best and the flan is also great. Wish I had discovered this sooner, would so go back here if went to Barcelona again. Left a tip and they even give you a restaurant pen.
