We stopped by because of the great reviews. The food was absolutely amazing and cooked to perfection. Portions were small, but worth every bite. I highly recommend.I had the pork with pearl onions with what looked like yogurt sauce. My daughter had the slow cooked...More

This is a hard review because the food is so exceptional, it's deserving of 5 stars. However, the wine was average, and clearly recommended to get rid of (3 other tables nearby had the same wine rec) instead of being a good match. Also, they...More

Will be one of the reasons I come back to Barcelona! The staffs are also extremely friendly, all dishes are a-maxing! But the foie gras ravioli completely stole my heart.

The food was very good, value was great and service was excellent. But it’s a cave-like atmosphere that’s super noisy, tight spaces and no linens (paper napkins and no tablecloth). It’s cheap furniture that wobbles but that how they’re able to keep the prices down....More

El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this
gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an
excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic

record stores, second hand shops, and student bars
that seem to light up the streets day and night. The
rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day

We had the concierge of our hotel call them directly and make a reservation for us. That was the easiest and most secure way to do it I think.

I think so, yes. Just ask the staff to call a taxi for you right when you finish.
