We had sangria, mussels, and chips. Mussels had no flavour, chips were meh and even the sangria was not good. We were very disappointed. So many great places to eat and we wasted a meal here...

We came across this restaurant by chance when the one we wanted to go to was fully booked. We had the sharing starter which was massive but we could tell it was all very fresh. My partner then had the mussels and I had the...More

Had the lunch special here - appetizer (salad or fried sardines), mussels, dessert, beverage (which can include beer or wine) for about 10 euros - great value. Mussels and fish were wonderfully fresh and tasty. Service ok: it's a busy place, so servers are a...More

I called here as the nearby restaurant I was planning to visit was closed. The orange decor is a little odd but I was glad in the end that I called here. I opted for a ham salad which came in a very generous portion...More

The mussels were not very well seasoned (I got the garlic and olive) and lots of small pieces inside my pot. The fries were not seasoned at all. Servers were not very friendly.

High quality fresh food served with speed. Good selection of tapas & Salad starters including a limited selection of vegetarian (no fish) dishes. A huge array of preparations of mussels. A kids menu and alternative dishes.

A nice treatment, place and a good variety of cooked mussel. It is a proper place to have a family lunch. You aren't wait a fancy place, it is familiar and comfortable.

If you love muscles, this place is a must. Best muscles I've had in a long time. Be sure to order the bread (sim tomato) to dip in the broth afterwards. Call ahead and reserve a table outside.

Getting here randomly because it's close to our hotel and we're not sorry. We're surprised by the amount of souces they offer. We just follow the waitress suggestion with marinera sauce, and the whole mussel bucket tastes great! The mussels are fresh and the sour-sweet...More

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
