The most expensive tapas we tried in spain. Tasted average (better spanish dishes back home in Australia). Service was dismal. I wouldn't waste my time in this restaurant with so many good places in Barcelona.

The location is really great, situated close by the Santa Maria del Mar. We ordered tapas and even though we did not receive everything on our order, it was really good food. The waiter was inattentive and all together uninterested in our table after most of our food had arrived. Maybe he had a long day? Good food, sub par service.

It looks good and enjoys a great location in the gothic area. However, the welcome was non-existent & staff didn't have a clue. We received only 2/3 of the tapas dishes we ordered and what we consumed was well below average! AVOID !! Go to Sagardi across the street!

This was thoroughly decent tapas with friendly, polite and speedy service. We sat outside in the square and the children ran around playing, making it a very enjoyable 90 minutes with a couple of San Miguels to wash the table full of varied and tasty tapas down.

We were tired after a long day sightseeing and hungry. Everywhere seemed full and we decided to go in here as there was plenty of space inside. If we hadn't been so tired and hungry I think we would have had better judgement and realised there was a reason it was virtually empty inside. We were greeted by a smiling waiter, but as soon as we had sat down and ordered, the waiters were a bit moody, rude and indifferent.

We had raw meatballs, vile house wine and the other tapas we had (such as patatas bravas, which should be quite easy to make) were just about edible. The worst food we had in Barcelona by a mile. And it was not a one-off mistake as we heard the family on the next table complain about their cold fish. The waiters treated them with a right attitude after they complained politely.

We would have been better off eating a sandwich. Horrendous place.
