From the lovely welcome to consistently great service and delicious food, we would highly recommend this great restaurant. The staff are very friendly and were able to make suggestions for food and drinks to suit us all, our children were made to feel especially welcome even though the rest of the restaurant was exclusively adult. The Catalan dishes are particularly... More

We dropped in for a glass of Cava which turned out to be the best we had while in Barcelona. Returned to beat several times - staff were very friendly and welcoming, food very good. We especially liked the salt cod salad (generous portion), the local deep fried little green peppers, the grilled vegetables and the fried artichokes. We will... More

Dropped in for lunch here after visiting La Sagrada Famila. Shared 3 tapas; tuna salad, fried calamari & croquettes. The croquettes were the only ones we enjoyed. The tuna salad came with a couple of small pieces of bread, but should have had more because you couldnt eat it by itself. The calamari looked nice, but was actually quite bland,... More

Have the lobster paella and was NOT disappointed. I've eaten paella here several times before and this was by far the best. Happy crew and didn't mind that I didn't speak Spanish.... More

Tapas ordinary with calamari just batter and no substance. Main dish cold and terrible should have sent it back. Waitress made the mistake of asking about the meal. We explained that the main meal was so so and her smiling persona totally changed. We were outcasts from this point. We are accustomed to good tapas and Spanish good and this... More

We had 3 kids with us who weren't too sure about the Tapas options but gave it a go! We ordered a couple of tapas samplers which were good but a bit too tuna/ mayo focused but the fresh cannelloni and fried egg / chips ( for very fussy child) were delicious. Good beer, wine and drinks. The staff were... More

the tapas were ok, but nothing special. Waiter rather unmotivated, with the "these tourist idiots" attitude between lines.

Our meal here was the most memorable of all our meals during our time in Spain. We had tried paella but were disappointed and decided to give it a go once more at this place.

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
