OMG what a crappy experience. And we only went for a drink! The poor people who come for dinner, I can't imagine! They wouldn't bring our change. Had to ask twice to a "snotty" response! Well, no tip for you! There are so many good places to eat...keep walking, you will find them!

We stopped here for dinner before going to a show and were not disappointed. We ordered tapas and cava sangria. Both were excellent. The wait staff were very friendly and attentive and we felt very well looked after.

The staff are friendly, although very little English is spoken. If you have a few words of French it helps (although the menus are in English). A three course meal for 12 euros including a bon wine. The staff are friendly and the place is clean. The first visit the food and service was a 5. The second a 3.... More

Just returned from a few days in Barcelona, went to this restaurant as it was situated near the Cathedral and was in a good location. We arrived just in time for the lunch time menu which was on offer at 12Euros (but cost more to sit outside) and if we had only wanted a drink we would have been made... More

This restaurant is located beside the Gaudi Interpretative Center and nearby to the Cathedral and History Museum in the Old Town. We enjoyed our lunch inside the spacious, clean, air conditioned restaurant rather than eat outside in the heat for an extra charge. We had no trouble ordering as the menu was in English and the waiter spoke English too.... More

It was already mentioned above. It was disaster from the beginning to end. Food was average and overpriced. Unbelievable they are charging you that you decided rather to stay outside than inside. I haven't seen more unfriendly staff like I witnessed there. A trap for tourists but really try to avoid it.
