The restaurant is very close to our hotel - Hesperia Sant Joan Suite. It closes its kitchen at 11pm so be sure to be there before that. My favorite is the fried calamari. The portion of this dish is HUGE! The goat cheese salad is very delicious as well

It was an excellent discovery in a small town. There are special lunch deals on SAT & SUN. It's very busy during lunch & dinner time. May have to wait for a table. Excellent pizza, good value for money. Drink Pizza & dessert 12 €. Good service

Service is brilliant as is the atmosphere. We chose this place for our last meal in Barcelona as we were looking forward to going... More

My wife and I were staying in a nearby hotel so tried this place for dinner due to other positive reviews. The restaurant is deceptively large, we opted to sit inside as the air con was very good. We were eating at 5.30pm so the full menu wasn't available (fair enough), only pizza and tapas. We both had pizza which... More

Visited for dinner while staying go a long weekend at the nearby Hesperia hotel and followed TripAdvisor reviews. As expected the staff (except for one waiter) spoke little English and this caused a mix up with the starter. We were expecting slices of cantaloupe melon with iberico ham but instead were served the unlikely cantaloupe melon soup with ham as... More

Just had dinner at this restaurant as I was staying at a local hotel. The hotel recommended this place for dinner. It looks quite ordinary from the outside so I didn't have high expectations. I was delighted with the great service and even better food. There weren't not many choices of tapas, but the quality of the selections was excellent.... More
