Description: Cocina Mediterranea con ligeros toques orientales- La inspiracion de este restaurante se traslada a una tienda de ultramarinos, apelando a la formalidad y la nostalgia. Madera robusta, vitrinas con botellas y envases, caracterizan el interiorismo. Fusion mediterranea con reminiscencias orientales en la que conviven en perfecta armonia especias como el clavo, la canela y la nuez moscada junto a productos locales como las verduras frescas, carnes y pescados del dia, otorgando un merecido protagonismo al aceite de oliva Extra Virgen.

The service was ok but the taste was far from being incredible. Prices were also ok, about 20? per person. Nice place in the heart of all tourist restaurants.

My husband and i have been to barcelona many times now and we always come back to this restaurant. The food is delicious fresh and very reasonable.
You may have to wait for a table but that is because it's worth the wait!!
Also the staff are great....
Can't wait to go back!

I had planned to take my friends to Quince Noches but the line was so long (at 7:45PM) that we visited this neighboring restaurant instead, where there was no wait. Our waiter (who was from Bangladesh) was friendly and helpful. There was such an interesting variety of dishes on the menu that it was hard to choose. We shared the starter of ravioli made with truffles. The main courses ordered were duck breast with sweet potato puree and strawberries (cooked "medium" as the waiter recommended), pork with sweet onions, and baby squids in ink sauce with spinach puree (all around 10 or 11 euros each), all attractively presented. The food was good, although the squid was a bit of a shock (and a bit fishy) for the brave 18 year-old who ordered it. The portions were not large. Big eaters would need a starter and a main course but my main course was enough for me. The bottle of Sprite ordered by one of us was tiny (200ml/6.75 oz.). But these are typical portions for here.
We ate outside. The tables were not too close together.

We ate here twice on a recent visit to Barcelona and found the food, service and wine very good. It was all very reasonably priced and cost us less than the "bargains" on Las Ramblas! On our first night we were entertained by street acrobats too as we sat at our table!
