Visited this restaurant 10 years ago, and amazingly remembered it and the location. It has great food, and for the area quite reasonable prices. A little off the beaten path, but not far from the Rambla and only a few yards from the harbor.

I visited this restaurant with my partner for coffee and desert only. The restaurant had only one other couple in, which should have been a warning sign. We ordered the crepe with ice cream and Dulche de leche and Catalana creme. The crepe was cold...More

By far, a quality establishment. The food here is made with real passion and love, and it shows in the taste. Try the black rice or the catalan chicken and the creme caramel. Funky art on the walls, unusual decor, very comfortable and relaxing atmoshphere.
