The quality of the food was excellent - but small portions. The suckling pig was just three small cubes. Very tasty, but just not enough to satisfy. Everything seemed to be small (besides the size of the restaurant!) - my wife asked for just hot water, which came in a tiny little cup; the Americano coffee came in a tiny (Espresso size) cup - the smallest Americano that I have ever had. The waitresses seemed to have a problem understanding English (for example, my wife asked for a refill of hot water, and to leave the lemon in, don't take it away. It came back minus the lemon!!). However, we thoroughly enjoyed the food, despite the small portions. The bill was not small, though. The restaurant is so small that it traps the noise - so don't go for a relaxing evening.

I was here on May 15th, a Monday. What a fun evening! One thing I didn't expect was the camaraderie among the diners in my part of the restaurant. Next to me was a couple from Brazil. On the other side was a couple from the U.K. I ordered my main, and then discovered that both of the couples had gotten the suckling pig. Furthermore, it was an obvious hit. I was impressed enough by their testimony that I ordered it immediately. They were right. The pork was incredible. As was the chocolate trio for dessert. To top off the evening's fun, the couple from the U.K. was celebrating a birthday and we got to sing Happy Birthday. Great meal in fine company that evening!

We booked ahead by email from the UK. Arek, the lovely maitre d greeted us like friends. It was my birthday and they delivered a desert to the table and all sang to me. The whole team were friendly. The food is superb. I had blackberry mojito (or 2!) Spring rolls to start and chicken with herbs. Gorgeous. It is a small space but feels intimate and convivial.

Book well in advance (like 4-6 days) to secure a table or try your luck as we did at the bar- works for groups of 2 usually even if you have to wait halfa. Wait as long as it takes because everything about this place is worth it. Service was impeccable behind the bar and wait staff. Signature cocktail is delicious and all I can say about the food is this is fine dining quality without the price tag. Absolutely delicious. Can't wait to get back to Barca just to go here again. A free liquor with the bill was a magnificent way to end.
