Fast friendly service. We tried the veggie Taco and burritos, sooo good we had to try the Nachos. What a move! The best nachos I have ever had. Even beats my own homemade nachos, which never happens! Fresh avocados, cheese all the way through. Good work guys, nailing it!

After a long day of walking we ended up there at the afternoon and enjoyed sitting out with some drinks and tapas. The service was speedy and everything tasted like it should have. There was a large group of French youngsters a couple of tables away, drinking and singing and shouting. I would have like the waitresses to try to... More

We stumbled upon this little spot during the late afternoon and ended up staying a couple hours because of the incredible Mexican food, amazing drinks, super cool vibe and playlist, and nice staff. So happy we found it and actually a highlight for us in Barcelona as we left feeling amazing and had a great afternoon of drinks and food.

Stumbled across this place after looking for somewhere to eat for ages, to be honest we only chose to go here as there were seats in the sun. Little did we know we were about to be served the best food EVER. We went back again the day after it was that good. Chicken nachos are to die for. Great... More

The food here is really affordable and well-priced. The beef burrito was very tasty and the chicken tacos my gf had were also very nice. It's really good without fault.

Located in the perfect spot to relax and enjoy the sun all day and the view. It offers fresh juices and smoothies, excellent burritos, awesome tacos, nachos and fresh sald. Everything is made fresh daily. The cocktails are priced at only 5-8 euros and are amazing, especially the fresh fruit daquiris and mojitos. Very efficient service ambience and quality.
