Absolute must when you visit Barcelona. This place has incredible atmosphere and the food is simply amazing. The service was second to none. Would definitely recommend to anyone who likes to eat. We went there with a total of 4 kids and they really enjoyed...the food. The restaurant is quite loud at night so it allowed them to act as kids which was perfect for a family outing.More

We dined here during our recent stay in Barcelona. We had to book in advance to ensure we got a table. Upon arrival, we were placed on a high table (four of us) and soon after, a group of American tourists were seated beside us...-as the table was I think for 9 people. While initially unhappy with such an approach, it wasn’t intrusive or uncomfortable. Only thing is being seated in highchair best part of two hours isn’t very good for your back! That aside the food was excellent. The service was okay to so nothing really to, complain about. Overall, the experience was very good and I would definitely return to this place.More

👎🏻Tourist Trap👎🏻 F.Ex: Wine per glass so expensive regarding the cost price. Without sense. I am a neighbor and regular customer for many years. Ajusten un poco los precios!

great place to go and eating good food. Although they have a lot of tables I suggest you reserve in advance since it is always full. Service is great also.

This place is unmissable!! Come here - make sure you book- and get the staff to pick you a selection. I’m not kidding- this place is incredible. The croquette calamari is one of the best things I have ever put in mouth! Absolutely insane how...good it was. Come here, enjoy! Your welcomeMore

I’m almost hesitant to leave a review of this restaurant because one of the things we loved about it was that it has such a nice neighborhood feel with mostly locals. The tapas were excellent particularly the cod fritters, tuna tataki, fried onion, and octopus....The wait staff were very welcoming and attentive. One of our best meals in Barcelona. I suggest making a reservation online. It fills up.More

Bad service with misplaced orders, and little service even when we were at the bar in front of them already. Soured our mood considerably. Not to mention so overpriced for the quantity and quality that we got. The place we went to the previous night,...'Vinitus' was better food, much better service and half the price.More

Excellent tapas. Everything was done well. The squid ink octopus croquettes were delicious and the garlic beef was tender and done perfectly. The restaurant was busy and needs reservation a month in advance. The decor was modern and clean. It is definitely a good choice...if you visit Barcelona.More

My wife found this restaurant on the Michelin site, implying it was a rated restaurant so we booked it. We had a shared table at 6:30. Ordered the tuna tartar, cuttlefish, oxtail, smoked salmon, peppered steak. The food was heavily salted and over priced. My...wife is Taiwanese and can cook circles around this place, especially with oxtail and smoked salmon. Her sister, myself and my wife decided not to stick around for dessert. No sign of any Michelin rating and certainly not deserving of that rating nor the 85 euros we paid for what we were served. Won’t go back and don’t recommend you go either. Disappointed. Live and learn.More
