“Great food, good service”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

So happy to find this restaurant after a very bad experience off las ramblas (think it was called polvia couldn't find it on here to give it a bad review- it's around the corner do not go there! They basically ripped us off charging 7 euros for a coke when I asked at the time of ordering how much it was didn't answer me pretending to not speak much English!! Fuming about it still)

Glad this resturant actually looked ALOT better and WAY cheaper!

The resturant decor is lovely. Our meals were 8 and 9 euros and a coke was 1.90 euros quite reasonable. The food was super!! Had deserts too the banana split was huge. The staff were very friendly. I left a tip even! ( which i think is not norm, and I'm Aussie so we don't usually tip anyway.) Recommended.

“Great find near la rambla.”
Reviewed August 26, 2013 via mobile

My partner and I found this after walking just off la rambla as all the restaurants on la rambla are over priced and food not the best quality. We were attracted to it as it said 'grill' and looked very nice inside. They had a 15euro deal for bread, entree, main, desert & glass of wine or water.

The food was average to good, wine was nice. Our waiter was great and spoke English very well. Overall a great experience and the ambience in restaurant was great, was fairly busy for 8pm. Lots of tables so you don't need to book. Would go back if looking to go somewhere close to la rambla for convenience.

“Excellent, but not worth queuing”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

Found this place after a disappointing meal on Las Ramblas (don't go for the 3 tapas + paella deals - very poor quality, beer very very expensive).

This restaurant serves great starters and main courses, with good wines and very good value for money all round. Don't expect haute cuisine or Swiss levels of service - it just doesn't exist anywhere we have ate in Barcelona. So expect to take you time, the wine is not expensive and the atmosphere is great.

Unfortunately we are not the only ones to find this place and there is a queue after 8.30 in the evenings. I wouldn't queue because there are so many restaurants to choose from - but I would get to this place before 8.30.

“Good food - bad service”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

We went twice to this restaurant: the first visit was great: great service, nice food.
Since we really liked it the first time, we decided to pay them another visit. What a difference in treatment: our waitress pretended she could only speak spanish (although we knew from the other night that she spoke fluent english and which bs: being a restaurant off Las Ramblas you live of tourists, so don't be obnoxious and pretend English is some kind of yuck language), she was rude to us and very impatient.
During our diner we saw a cockroach walk up the wall behind our table. We called a waitress and showed her the cockroach. She came back with a big broom and tried to crush the animal. But the cockroach was too fast and fell under our table and found a hiding spot. The waitress and her colleague tried to find it, but gave up pretty fast and walked away, without something like a sorry or whatever.
Our kids didn't really the idea of a cockroach at their feet, so left the restaurant pretty fast after this incident.
I'm giving them a 2 out of 5, because the first evening was a nice one, but based on the second visit, they don't deserve this.
Shame!

“A great find”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

Of all the restaurants near La Ramblas, we stumbled on this great restaurant. The food & service was great, the menu was not 'tourist' prices. I returned about 3 weeks later in the early evening, it was closed ...gutted.
