The mussels were not very well seasoned (I got the garlic and olive) and lots of small pieces inside my pot. The fries were not seasoned at all. Servers were not very friendly.

High quality fresh food served with speed. Good selection of tapas & Salad starters including a limited selection of vegetarian (no fish) dishes. A huge array of preparations of mussels. A kids menu and alternative dishes.

We stopped here, on our first night in Spain, and had a wonderful dinner. Service was friendly, and unobtrusive. It was a Saturday night, and avertable was full. We were fortunate to get in just ahead of the rush. Reservations would be wise, if going...More

A nice treatment, place and a good variety of cooked mussel. It is a proper place to have a family lunch. You aren't wait a fancy place, it is familiar and comfortable.

If you love muscles, this place is a must. Best muscles I've had in a long time. Be sure to order the bread (sim tomato) to dip in the broth afterwards. Call ahead and reserve a table outside.

Getting here randomly because it's close to our hotel and we're not sorry. We're surprised by the amount of souces they offer. We just follow the waitress suggestion with marinera sauce, and the whole mussel bucket tastes great! The mussels are fresh and the sour-sweet...More

Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you
enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally
translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes
recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant
atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district,
Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end
international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the
glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best
