We went for a birthday and the experience was great, personally I ordered the bull tail burger that was simply amazing, on the other hand I have to say that the cangreburger was not what we expected, the staff was so good too.

Fantastic food and service. The ham croquettes are amazing as is the roast beef sandwich. Really everything was great and it was quite reasonably priced. Would go again.

El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
places that live and breathe such exciting energy
regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants
