Service has been too much slow. They forgot our water, later our bread, and at the end they delayed more than an hour to being main courses.

We entered this place around 7 PM with the intention to get a few tapas only. Pimentos del Padron were great, but so was the Jamon Iberico and hummus. Eventually we ended up ordering beef entrecot and it was cooked to perfection. Additionally, we ordered the steaks at 7:25 and we were told that there was no chef until 8... More

Food and service was fantastic. Visited twice with my family and on both occasions everything was great! Tapas the first visit and a main meal the second visit, definitely recommend their shoulder of lamb and the patatas Bravas! Good food for a good price

This restaurant is very central. It is in the main square in Sant Cugat. It is not the cheapest, yet the food is quite good with respect to the price. Recommended.

We had a wonderful meal in this restaurant.The ham is very nice and you should really taste it. The beef tapas is a true re-order dish... We sat outside in an in-house patio. We had great white wine. Price is good.

This was the first restaurant my husband and I ate at upon arriving in Sant Cugat for dinner. We strolled down the road to the plaza and decided to try it. We ordered lots of various tapas and enjoyed each one. The atmosphere of being outside on the plaza next to the Monastery was magical. They do have a menu... More

Great local restaurant near the Santa Cugat Monastery. The tapas were good. I highly recommend the Porcini risotto, it had great flavor and the pasta was the right texture. Staff was pretty good, but speaking spanish was needed. Restaurant was filled with locals (families, couples, etc). Good place to eat if you are in the area.

Sant Cugat has plenty of small restaurants, however this one is slightly larger than most, with a separate bar if only having a drink. Food service was quick and quality very good.
