We walked by the beautiful house and were drawn to it because it looked very authentic. Erika greeted us at the door and was extremely helpful the entire visit. She was funny and helped us practice our Spanish while ordering. The vegetarian in our group had a few options and chose the lasagna which she liked. The rest of our... More

I stumbled across this restraunt while out walking from the Parc Guell. I have nevr tasted such wonderful home made food ! Every bite was delicious ! The Tapas menu was very reasonable and affordable for most budgets. I cannot recommend this restraunt enough if you are in this area ! Thank you for a wonderful and unforgetable meal.

We bumped into this restaurant during our visit of Guell park. Just near bus station. We ate tapases and everything was tasty. Staff was very polite and atmosphere is domestic. Price was fair, nothing expensive. Our recommendation

Came here with a group of friends. Staff were helpful and friendly, and both the food and drink were great and very reasonably priced. Definitely recommend eating here if you're nearby.

We walked into this place having not read any reviews and were given a table instantly. Shortly after this, the waitress found out that we don't speak Spanish and helpfully translated the entire tapas menu for us. This is not a place with English menus but to my English tastes, it was fantastic. Highly recommended to all.

Staying in Gracia

Neighbourhood Profile
Gracia
Gracia literally stands out from the pack. It used to be an independent town until late into the 19th century. Though it’s just a short commute away from the centre, a visit here feels like you’re in a whole different city. The bohemian vibe has drawn many international artists to this area, resulting in a wide selection of galleries, live music and artsy boutique stores. The nightlife is centered around the vibrant Gracia’s plaças, where young and old gather to enjoy a drink outside. Carrer de Verdi, its main street, offers affordable restaurants and a movie theatre that screens new as well as classic films in their original language. However Gracia's greatest treasure lies just up the hill at Guell Park, where Antoni Gaudi's vibrant and revolutionary art sculptures stand atop unequaled views of Barcelona.
