Our hotel concierge recommended this as a very good tapas restaurant-perhaps due to our miscommunication. It's a lovely Catalonian restaurant that seem very popular with locals. The menu is extensive with local favourites such as tripe, brain, etc-definitely not tapas. My wife had sole-the whole fish was presented and filleted at our table. I had goat cutlets-was surprised when the plate arrived, filled with goat ribs, each with a small amount of meat. Our food was delicious. Our server helped us select an excellent Spanish white wine. Service was initially very attentive but the restaurant became very busy so it waned. Overall, a very good Spanish restaurant.

Concierge recommended- 19 Euros for main course of 3 prawns, very average size and came with nothing at all just sitting on a bare plate. Nothing wrong with them just overpriced and non imaginative. Rest of food was ok but felt like another overpriced touristy restaurant. Service was good.

The restaurant is modern with the kitchen when you walk in. The tables are in the back with no view, but it is a pleasant room. The night we were there it was quiet but had a good crowd. The food is very good, came out hot, and was tasty. From the fish to the steak, it was worthwhile going and I would go again.

The restaurant was highly recommended. The service was good and as expected the food was also good. The paella was a bit disappointing. Have had better in smaller restaurants in Barcelona.

Was here with a business group. Good tapas but very poor paella. It was undercooked, dry, no vegetables and 2 small bony pieces of meat.

I felt they couldn't wait for us to finish. I left the table to use the bathroom only to find my drink removed and the table cleared.
