We had the seafood platter with lobster. The portion was more than plenty for two of us. The preparation and serving was excellent...so was the service. The waiter provided us professional and very friendly service. This is a restaurant we can recommend.

We came here after some disastrous food near our hotel. On arriving our waiter was very accommodating and provided me with a comfortable chair.
We shared some gorgeous jamon and a lovely bottle of wine. A lovely evening after a shaky start. I would strongly recommend a visit.

This is one of the best restaurants in Barcelona with great service and food presentation, and a highly professional staff.

Before ordering, we got two tapas dishes: “Galician style” octopus which was too chewy and salty, and a deep fried “Andaluzia style” cuttlefish which was excellent. For starters, we had a Caesar and a Mediterranean salad, and then we both shared lobster Paella which was out of this world. We finished the meal with two beautiful desserts: chocolat coulant (melted chocolate) with vanilla quenelles, and a coffee frappe with whipped cream and cocoa.

With wine, the bill came to about $90.

This looked promising, great location & the sun was shinning.

After looking through the menu & prices we decided on having just drinks. I wanted a glass, as stated on the menu, but the waiter said it was half a litre. I asked if I could have a smaller glass "No!" came the surly reply! Okay, we had 2 beers & asked for bread & olives. We were amazed at the bill, we checked with the waiter telling him that we'd only had bread, olives & beer, it was correct! Not good value & looking at the other dinners plates it didn't seem as though we'd missed much!

Then there's the facilities. This restaurant is huge, terrace outside & then more seating inside all serviced by 2 toilets!! A mens & a ladies/disabled, disgusting state & the smell is awful which isn't surprising given the amount of traffic these must see!

Could be great but it's lacking decent food, facilities & value.
