“Very good for what it is . . .”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

My partner and I stumbled on this place late one weeknight when we were hungry and every place around us was closed. How lucky we were. We were graciously welcomed by our waiter with a bottle of red vermouth and two glasses for aperitifs as we perused the menu and then ordered. The food--and the house wine--were very good and v-e-r-y inexpensive. We lingered over our meal with homemade desserts and then coffee. Although the restaurant is modest and part of a chain, we would definitely go back.

“Real local food with good taste”
Reviewed April 9, 2014

The place is meant for locals getting their good quality tostones, which is a local speciality made of grilled bread, tomato and olive oil. The grilled meat and sausages make the eating experience great. It is authentic kitchen, good service, very good value for money.

“Excellent, traditional, simple food”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

The food there was excellent and the people were very nice to adults and children. If you are looking for fish do not come here. As a previous reviewer said, all the food walked on four feet once (with one exception, the anchovies in the traditional escalivida appetizer). The atmosphere is very calm and relaxing. This is a place for families and groups. Again the food there was excellent, traditional, simple food.

“Hits the Spot in Every Way”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

Don't come here and order a paella. Or expect a menu in English. You will get neither.

What you will get is simple food with the time-tested truth that fine raw material, a trusty cook's hand, a grill and olive oil will, put together, bring a delightful meal to your table.

This is a Catalan restaurant. No seafood. Just stuff that walk on legs and grow on the ground. "Tostas", or local pages bread grilled slightly to bring out some flavor, take center stage. They put all sorts of good stuff on these slices of bread: ham, pate, cheese, vegetable, etc. Worth a try, definitely. Go for the pate.

The main dishes are grilled practically next to your table. Each dining room has a grill where an expert whips up a variety of simple dishes for your enjoyment. The grilled lamb at 10.95 is a bargain---I believe this to be the most expensive entree.

Once done, their desserts will not disappoint. My son had turron ice cream and he had a tough time warding off intruding teaspoons from the rest of the family. The flan is heavenly.

The service is just what one expects in Spain----not polite but very effective. Your orders will arrive ASAP and not one will be missed out.

So here you get good food, good price and good service. What more can one ask? Love this place.

“No atmosphere and very basic food”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

This grill restaurant is rather big but only had 4 tables accupied on a Sunday night. This is no place for a romantic dinner, because the lights are bright and there is no background music what so ever. As for the food, you just get what you ordered on a plate, nothing more. No vegetables, salad, garnis or anything like that (think Italian style dinner). The grill taste and house wine were nice though. Biggest dispointment was the desert: I just got a piece of Vienetta on a plate. Again, nothing more. Conclusion, stay away here because in Sant Gervasi are lots of other better places. F.e. see our other reviews.
