To celebrate an anniversary as a couple, you like a nice atmosphere, warm service, good food, good drinks too... and the feeling you've been offered a good deal.
We went there (not confusing it with Blau BCN or Bar Blau or a Pizzeria, as some other, enthusiastic reviewers seem to have done) with a €19 LetsBonus voucher and were utterly disappointed. Neither the atmosphere, the service, the food or the drinks met our expectations or the minimal requirements to be able to say we were satisfied. We got a €16 menu plus poor quality drinks for a meal advertised as being worth €40..
A piece of advice for JOana's kids: please send some friends there, anonymously, and ask them their opinion. And take note. Please. For hygiene, for health, for decency.
P.S. When will reviews in Catalan be allowed?

The fish they served me was actually dry and bitter. I immediately spitted on the plate and refused to eat anything else. My girlfriend ate a bit of her plate only. At least they had the decency of not charging me for the bad fish, but no apologies, no free dinner. If you are in front just go to the kenab place a few meters up. The people are much nicer, speak English. The owner is Giri Dada, nice fellow, and I always have a full kebab. Delicious.

Our guidebook said this is a great place to have an affordable meal. Which it turned out to be. We payed € 45 for a nice four course lunch, with a bottle of cava, water, and a coffee. Very kind waiter too. Unfortunately, at the end of the afternoon, we both got sick, my wife quite severe. I'm afraid not everything was that fresh...

The food is excellent - very fresh, beautifully and lovingly prepared. The service is excellent as well.
If you enjoy very nice seafood, or an excellent cut of meat, a very nice bur rata ... MMM!!!, then this is the place.
The owner and chef is a dream, and his staff makes you feel welcome and very very well taken care of.
