We had seen reviews but didn't realise it was so close to our hotel (1 block away), found it on our last evening, couldn't believe we were lucky enough to just get a table outdoors without even booking. Was a perfect evening, great service, the most amazing squid ink rice meal, delicious Catalan meat soup, best meal by far.

Stopped in while wandering through the Gothic quarter and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the meal. We had the duck confit (pictured) and squid with baked vegetables. Both were excellent and seemed to be a good representation of local Catalonian dishes. Paired with a reasonably priced wine. We would go back!

Really liked this place. Excellent food, great service, good wine. At first glance it looks rather formal, but it felt quite casual once we sat down. Will come back again!

Visited Cafe De L’Academia for evening meal, took two half portions from menu, Cod with saffron and Cataluña sausage with asparagus. Cod was ok but Sausage was great, gave me the push for a desert, which was stunning.
But all in all the service and atmosphere was great. Will return.

Great location once you find it. Menu somewhat limited but the two meals we had there were outstanding. Great service and loved the small plaza across from the restaurant.
