My fiancé and I had some relaxing moments in this restaurant. Being on vacation for 5 days in Barcelona, we spent 3 nights at this restaurant. What made us come back? The best Paella and Sangria we have tried so far. We were pleasantly impressed by the nice setting of the restaurant, the relaxing atmosphere and by the waiter's and the owner's hospitality.

These are their specialties and they are good. They serve two and it is a lot of food.
This was a good family restaurant as well bc it is one of the very few open around 6 for dinner near the fountains. They took care of two families with small children easily when we were there.
Our waiter Guillermo, was excellent. He gave really good recommendations, and was very attentive. We saw him fillet a whole fish for someone else and he was very good.
CJ was working with him and between the two we could not have asked for better.
This is a bright, lively place.
We wanted to see the fountains after and this worked perfectly, although early for dinner in Barcelona.

My sister and I found this restaurant with good reviews on trip advisor and google map
The waiters were nice and friendly and the food was good , but not excellent ( not really impressive ) and also little expensive( 19.9€ per person)
Originally I would give maybe 3.5 stars for this restaurant due to good service and food , but the reason why I gave 2 stars is that we felt somehow cheated by the waiters . I asked the waiter whether he could recommend us some good drink and he suggested us a bottle of red wine , which cost 22€ ( he said ) . The price was too much for us , so he gave us an alternative that he could bring us a glass of wine ( 7€per person) , so we said yes .
Then he brought the wine with a bottle and 2 glasses ( we should have asked why it was a bottle at this time , but we didn't , so it was also part of our fault )
We found it strange but didn't ask them . After the meal we saw the bill , the wine cost 23€ , not 7€ per person we expected , and even more than 22€ he mentioned before ....
perhaps there was some misunderstanding because we didn't speak Spanisch , but we felt really bad and somehow cheated .

I will never visit here again .
