Great food, excellent value and friendly staff. What more could anyone want. We ordered a burger, smoked salmon on Bagel and Chorizo hash plus drinks - there were 3 of us and the bill was 40 euros. I would recommend this place to anyone visiting Barcelona

We were so lucky to stumble upon this little restaurant, a buzzing atmosphere, friendly staff, but the food was the best surprise of all, it was really great. I'm sad I don't live in Barcelona so I can't eat the drunken prawns all the time- I wish I knew how to make it myself!

We got here at 10:50 AM, with 3 tables ahead of us. We were sitting by 10:52 AM. Don't let the possibility of waiting for a table stop you from trying this place! We love to sample breakfast locations while traveling and this one is a hit. We had French toast, crab Benedict, American pancakes and orange juice. Everything was... More

Had brunch here twice (had to come back!) during a quick stay in the Gottic Quarter. Fabulous eggs benedict and outstanding chorizo hash. Staff were so kind and on our second visit, they had the entire place sharing new words for delicious, like scrumptious, stupendous and flavorful. All fit the bill at this cozy place.

We were in Barcelona for 3 nights and had dinner at Milk twice. The food is outstanding and is also great value for your money. The restaurant is a bit hidden as it is not located on a main street, however it was easy to find with google maps. The first night we tried their hot wings and drunken shrimp.... More

Made our way there after reading the reviews on tripadvisor. Didn't eat but the food looked good. Staff were friendly and the cocktails delicious. The place had a nice buzz about it and we were made welcome at the bar enjoying our drinks. Would definitely go back.

Not sure if it's the free shot of rum I got talking, or the 3 drinks I had, but my god the food was amazing, the service better, and the drinks best. I escaped for 40 Euros feeling very full and with 3 epic cocktails in my belly, feeling pleasantly drunk and quite happy. Get the prawns, they're out of... More

This was our first time in Barcelona and a friend from back home in Glasgow had recommended this place to me. The restaurant is hidden down a narrow street so you might not necessarily come across it unless your looking for it. It's quite small and modest but as soon as we walked in, we could see how popular it... More

My husband and I found this place on our 4th visit to Barcelona and we are in love. The food was beyond delicious. We waited in line for about 5 minutes but so worth it!!
