“a hidden gem”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

Fantastic little restaurant, just a few minutes off La Rambla ...... great food and good wine list .... all really reasonably priced (eg a jug of Sangria just €2.70 per person) good selection of well cooked dishes .... loved the desserts (especially the Mango Lasagne!). Staff charming .... menus available in a selection of languages. Main courses available in small or large portions ..... Definitely worth a visit .... a fraction of the price of La Rambla restaurants and far less manic!! (also do take away!)

“Great place for people watching at La Rambla”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

In the middle of the busy Rambla area, this street restaurant is a great place to watch the world go by. Lovely Caprese and Caesar salads and great house wine. Service was fine, considering how busy it was. Great buzz and friendly staff.

“Fail”
Reviewed April 7, 2013 via mobile

Worst service ever. When we arrived, the manager said curtly,"Give me a minute". He proceeded to do his thing . Five minutes later we were still waiting in barely a quarter filled restuarant. He did not even bother at all. Fail......

“good Mediterranean food in modern atmosphere”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

The choice is not extremely large but they are good at what they are cooking. At walking distance from Pl. Catalunya, it is just far enough away to not be extremely busy. The place is very light, sort of modern. The service is good and the deserts quite nice.

“A nice variety from tapas!”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

We had coffee a few nights last year at this restaurant and enjoyed watching the pedestrians from the sidewalk cafe. This year, we stayed at the Praktik Rambla which was just next door. We decided our first night to try the food selections and found them to be quite good and well portioned. Again this year, we sat outside and cannot comment on the indoor restaurant. However, the service we received was quick and attentive. The salads were fresh, the entrees were hot and the desserts were good. On three other nights, we had dessert and coffee and relaxed from a day of walking around the beautiful city.
