I turned up here very hunger on a Sunday afternoon when everywhere else - except la ramblas- was not serving food. As I found the service good, staff are friendly and the food is great, and I didn't have to wait to 9 pm to eat. Great

We stumbled across this place near our apartment. The food was very tasty, especially the potato omelette, Russian Salad and cuttlefish. Pizzas were pretty good also (not by Italian standards but good anyway) Very helpful and patient service. Great prices. It was full of locals the day we had lunch.

Wonderful local bodega. Friendly stuff, the young lady spoke a little bit english, but we understood each other very well. The food was delicious, portions quite large. If you go after 8, I recommend to book a table. You can do it online.

close to the "rambla" quite small (and noisy) restaurant with local food, we were the sole foreign people that evening. food was very good (particularly the paella), excellent the staff. honest prices. their beer "mesquina" was a good bitter beer. I'll return surely at my next business travel. suggested to ask for the internal room as it is less noisy.

A very good relation between quality and price if you take the menu. Charming service and quick answer. This place is also the headquarters of a group of Barça Fans and you can see tropheys and shirts of the FC Barcelona team on the walls. A nice place to go for a lunch

I found this restaurant on Trip Advisor and I was conviced from the excellent reviews! I sincerely was not disappointed and I went there one more time before coming back home: excellent paella and sangria, service fast and very kind. If you are in the area, don't miss it!

Thank Davy_Jones1234

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
