The restaurant manages to receive you in a pleasant atmosphere, a delicious and well prepared dish, and the prices are decent. The portions are generous and the service is exceptional. Thanks for hospitality

Since we do not use frozen products, but all our vegetables and meats are fresh, we do not understand how the food could have arrived frozen on the plate. Anyway we appreciate these comments as they help us to improve our service day by day....More

We went there for our first dinner in Barcelona. The seafood paella and the drinks were very good. The prices were reasonable for the quality of the food. We will definitely go back before leaving!
