Food is correct, service is correct... however, I had the impression that everything fell short. That's why I think my experience can be described with the word soulless. There was nothing in my food or service that made me remember my dinner at Cargolet. Just food done with any single intention to deliver a good experience to the customer.

Found by accident while on business. Busy little restaurant, nice inside but sat outside. Menu in English and Spanish. Had the set menu for €9.00, starter, mains and dessert or coffee. Fish soup to start, delicious. Beef and chips to follow, delicious also and not too big a portion, just perfect for lunch. Staff friendly and prompt, if I lived... More

The terrace was full, so that is a good sign: But sorry to say: the food was really bad: tasteless and fat. Service was friendly and fast, but the food makes me advice to avoid the place.

As a general rule if the locals eat here must be good- wrong as this place has ready prepared food at the counter and they only lay a couple of the tables when people come in.We were initially given a menu by and older waiter who the left us to our devices then another waitress took our order. We were... More

I went to this restaurant with my family. We ordered tapas, my daughter salmon and my kid a burger. The salmon was totally raw then it arrived. The burger was like cardboard and unbeatable. The salmon came back, the everybody was finished eating. The tapas was boring and was so very uninspiring. We bought a bottle of wine, they was... More

One of the few restaurants close to the Camp Nou in Barcelona. Friendly staff and good selection of tapas. I had the sepia, the stuffed paprika, the tomato bread and the crème catalana as dessert. The savoury tapas were really tasty and well presented. Positively surprised about the stuffed paprika. The homemade crème catalana was just ok and not really... More
