Great food especially the truffle ravioli. Fun place however ... Feeling rather stupid after paying 55 euros for wine upon waiters recommendation Only to find you can buy it for AUD 13.00 from Dan Murphy's (About €9)

We think it's the Baigorri... More

The best tapas we tried on our 5 day trip to Barcelona. Nice and friendly staff. Not very cheap, but worth it.

A large variety of many dishes to be shared with a large group of 24 people. They were fast bringing out dish after dish and each tasting was amazing. This was the best tasting variety of food I have ever had. Wow.

Great wait staff and really delicious tapas creatively prepared and presented beautifully. Try the grilled pulpo with a creamy sauce, stuffed peppers, and seafood paella - and remember to order the wonderful sangria. I'm gluten free had... More

Hidden gem! Recommend by a friend, we booked and were so grateful we had done as the restaurant is quite small and was packed when we arrived! All the dishes were amazing, the waiter helped us pick and recommended a couple of dishes to us, and made sure we didn't over order. Reasonably priced too and great service :) Highly... More

Popped in without booking - was absolutely packed but they squeezed us in at the bar. Super lovely staff, really great food and such good value, one of the few places in the area that we tried that wasn't overpriced! Really great vibe, the place was buzzing and we didn't want to leave!

Utterly amazing dishes masquerading as tapas..... Ignore the menu and ask the waiter - thing are not always as they seem - watch what the other diners are eating. Highlight for me was the risotto with cops and foie gras - I'd happily eat this every day no die happy.
