The 30 minute line up to get a table was an indicator that this place should be good.
Ordered sangria while waiting in line.
Huge drinks and very nicely made.
Once seated we really enjoyed each tapa served.
In all we had about 10 different tapas.
The most memorable ones include the octopus which was very nicely prepared, fois gras and cod.
The cod was salty and melted in your mouth.
Hummus was good while the chicken skewer was perfectly cooked.
The duck fois gras was surprise of the night which was outstanding! I had this as the final course but would recommend starting with it.
So many of the tapas had unique sauces.
I can see why this restaurant is so popular!
Was a great experience for our last night in Barcelona.
Highly recommend!

I wasn't sure about the service but the food was truly excellent. I thought the whole meal was really good and quite reasonably priced. Good value all round.

Really good food and service. Highly recommend!
Patatas bravas, risotto with vegetables, and Catalan cheese were super!

Small restaurant which packs a big punch. In a trendy part of town on a restaurant filled road, when we arrived at 9pm there was a formidable queue but our party of 5 was quickly seated with no fuss at all. The service was friendly, to exotic English speakers, if a bit busy. The menu was exciting and interesting and priced appropriately. My favourite dish was the tuna salad but the coal seared steak was a close second. A very filling meal for 5, with 2 beers and wine and some soft drinks came up to just over €100, and worth every penny!
