I have been coming to this restaurant once or twice a year for as long as I have lived here. The restaurant is beautiful with a nice ambiance, the kitchen is very reliable and the menu is very diverse (both in terms of offerings, price and portion sizes), so it is always a good option to take guests or groups...

Typical Catalan food in downtown Barcelona - you need to make a reservation as always busy lunch time and for dinner.

I was recommended this resturant by a colleague for good food and atmosphere and they weren't wrong. The food was first class and the waiters were very knowable. This is not a tapas resturant but a serious food resturant. I will be back the next time in Barcelona.

Try their paella for sure! Alot of ingredients and tastes amazing. It only cost 15euro as well and its big enough for 1-1.5 persons. Service could improve though. Two other tables that sat down 5min after us got serviced from other staff before our waitress came over to ask us for drinks.

...be careful what you order if you're not into offal! The stuffed artichoke starter was amazing, each had a tiny soufflé on it, just fabulous. However main courses were less fabulous to our rather tame (to be fair) English taste. Having a brain (I think...) bobbing about in a broth might alarm some people. And my baby squid on potato...

The place has a nice, intimate deco and a wonderful atmosphere. However, I was quite disappointed by the food. Our "xatò" starter was nice but mains of calamares and canelón were really poor. Busy service. I cannot really understand how this place is recommended by Michelin Guide as Bib Gourmand. Not expensive but quality is clearly far from stellar.

We were staying near this restaurant and were wandering by at lunchtime. "This place looks nice" says my wife and so in we went...and I'm so glad we did. The food was excellent and the service very good. Not knowing my way around a Spanish wine list, I sought advice on selecting a good red wine from the waiter and... More

Neighbourhood Profile
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 ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
