Amazing service. Incredible food. Must have patatas bravas and cheese dumplings. Beef tartare also insanely good. We would go back again next time we are in Barcelona definitely!!! Waitress was very charming and made us feel welcome and comfortable. Don't miss out!

We had their rocket salad with pear and Parmesan a delectable salad topped with a crispy fried piece of grated Parmesan. Also had tomato tartare with mushrooms, apparently some special Catalan mushrooms, as kind of pricey. Patatas bravas were excellent, as was the... More

The food is a combination of tradition with a modern touch. You have to try their Foie with chips. The ambiance is sophisticated. Perfect for dates and it even has a cinema close to it.

We visited this place to start the day and also ate lunch here. It seems to mainly service the many businesses in the industrial estate. Although I don't speak Spanish, I felt welcomed and very much enjoyed the food that was served at lunch time. If you're visiting any companies in the area, you'll get good food, refreshments and service... More

The four of enjoyed this restaurant very much. They opened at 8pm. They had menus in English and the server who spoke almost no English did her best to work with us. As for the food, it was served fresh and hot. They started us off with a tasty aperitif of some kind of minced meat croquettes that was very... More

Our concierge recommended the restaurant. He was spot on with his recommendation. Not having be to an authentic tapas place, we asked for a little help. This was not a problem as we don't speak Spanish, between me and the excellent waiter we got it. There is a service charge mind....we missed it but hey ho. The octopus main was... More

We had a wonderful late dinner here on our first night. We stumbled upon the restaurant while out for a stroll. It was a delicious surprise. I had a house white wine and my partner had a beer. We had the chorizo balls to start. For the main course, we had the fried goat cheese salad which was phenomenal as... More

I should preface this by noting that I'm not a picky eater. I'm quite happy with anything from Pizza Hut to a gourmet goat cheese and pear pizza. It's rare that I actively dislike dishes, especially ones that sound good on the menu or that I've had before. So I was quite surprised by how terrible I found the food... More
