Get the taster menu, or, anything else on the menu. Seriously. I'm a vegetarian but my partner was not. In our 4 days in Barcelona we ate there twice, and that was at my partner's insistence (the carnivore). We live in the Bay Area (CA), and couldn't get a meal of that quality at that price even if we tried. Fresh, inventive and delicious.

This restaurant and the people who run it deserve every bit of praise they receive.

The food is interesting and delicious, the staff friendly and enthusiastic. Very reasonable prices which together make this place worth a visit. Or two.

I wish this chef would move to San Diego! Don't know his name, but took a picture!

Get the 7-course menu and you will be in heaven. Ours featured:
--Pumpkin miso soup with pumpkin seed oil (so darn good)
--Padron peppers with lime, chili powder, salt
--Mushroom croquette and wrinkled potatoes with two heavenly sauces--artichoke and avocado. I want to buy jugs of these sauces!!
--Gorgonzola-stuffed gnocchi in a beet sauce. Seriously, killer. Too good.
--Curry spinach with garbanzos and rice. Wished I had a platter of this!
--Bread with red tomato and olive oil paste with green tomato and provolone cheese topping.
--Manchego cheese with quince paste (pre-postre, so not included as part of the seven)
--Pumpkin cheesecake with some kind of foam. Out of this world. This guy can cook savory and bake like a master?

Wine was very cheap and endless! All of this for 57 Euros. BEST value in Barcelona! A must go for ANY kind of eater (carnivore, veggie lover, etc.).

And one last side bar--the waiter was AMAZING. He sensed when we needed another glass of wine and was back at our table before we even said anything. So rare in Spain--what a gem.

This place was awesome! The Chef is actually a carnivore so he makes food that even carnivores can enjoy (for at least an evening). The menu consists of an eclectic variation of items, some of which are typically Spanish - mushroom croquettes, pan con tomate - and some that weren't like the perfectly textured gnocchi stuffed with blue cheese and covered in a beet and hazelnut sauce. All the dishes were tasty and satisfying, including the desserts. The chef's tasting is a great deal if you decide to do it: 7 dishes plus dessert and two glasses of wine to share for 2 people for 25Euros a person.

When I went there in April 2012, I really enjoyed it! The food was amazing- the mushroom crouquettes were delicious, the people were so friendly and it was a nice atmosphere. A little pricey though!
