I have lived in Paris and have never experienced such a bad service as in this place. Horrible profiling of clients. Waiters choose who they are friendly with and who they pay attention to. We had to wait too long for our order to be...taken and then we had to wait a lot for the check....other tables were served but our wasn´t. I feel a lot of factors went into this, profiling us because we were all women and latinas...the waiter is Argentinian and was very nice to the Argentinian couple sitting next to us. He proactively ignored us. That takes skill. I have never witnessed that kind of effort on ignoring a table even when we asked if we could order and we got up to go to the bar when it was ridiculous the amount of time we waited. The place was not that busy when we got there.More

I don’t generally do bad reviews but the food was really poor, the waitress was incapable of smiling, one of the staff had a screaming match with two elderly customers and I was charged for a bottle of wine after being given two glasses of...wine. It was not a pleasant experienceMore

I have got to say I have just had the best burger I have ever had. I had the blue cheese burger. It was freshly cooked, tender succulent meat. Beautifully presented. Great atmosphere in a beautiful part of Barcelona.

We came here twice and really like the place. First night we had a table at the bar , we came late around 22, and had some very tasty tapas and nice wine. Very friendly staff and super atmosphere with some live music. The fried...squid was absolutely delicious. Second time early dinner at 19 when the place was empty, which fitted us very well we were tired after a full day of activity and only wanted a good meal. A black rice octopus paella and a tuna with ponzu fulfilled our wishes. Nice staff , good wine. Place filled up and was crowded when we left at 22. I would really recommend this place, very good food for the right price and a relaxed fun atmosphere.More

What a fantastic little tapas bar in Barcelona! We discovered this great little bar on the first day of our holiday and returned again ! Ramon was a brilliant host and made us feel really welcome. We will be back!

Just stopped by for drinks with a friend. Service was extremely slow (we felt invisible), but ambiance was great. Didn’t try any of the food. Good location for a drink when visiting Palau de Musica if you aren’t in a hurry.

The atmosphere is warm, modern and authentic at the same time, so cool enough for cool people. Welcome. Service is rather dry but eventually they will concede a smile as long you are nice. You are in Catalonia! Proud people. Well for me it was...good enough. Food very very good. The grilled octopus outstanding, the fried fish luring and tasty and finally the lemon pie. All excellent. An Italian grappa to finish it up. Very good meal. Price I would say appropriate. So come in! You will enjoy it.More

Went here for a dinner last night. Food was served very fast, but wasn't particularly impressive. The white wine I had wasn't any good, and I didn't care for ambiance of the place. There is nothing particularly wrong with this place, but there are much...better restaurants in the neighborhood.More

Went there with my boyfriend on our last night in Barcelona. We did like the menu, so decided to go in. And what a bad decision it was! Went to the bar asking if we can have a sit - waitress didn't even look at...us, showed a table "there", that's it. Other guy quickly brought us menus, we've ordered drinks straight away. I had rose, and the amount of wine he gave me was not worth the money at all! My boyfriend ordered same starters for both - after 10 mins we've got 1 portion. 10 more minutes - asked the girl where's the second one - only then it appeared in the order. waited 10 more minutes - other starter came along with my boyfriend's main. My food main didn't arrive. No one came to our table even ones to check if everything was ok. The guy - turns out to be a manager named Paolo - was just passing by us with a very arrogant face. Had to stop the other waiter - Moises - the only nice and polite staff member at that place! He checked on my food, and it did arrive 5 mins later. He was the only one who came and check later if the food is fine etc. I must say, I would give food 5 top points - food is amazing there! But the level of service - pure disgrace. P.S. While waiting for our food, I've noticed other man coming in, probably the owner or someone very important. The gentleman went to the bar, took scissors, and started cutting his nails right next to the dining table...More

We popped in for a quick last min dinner last week and thought it was a lovely cosy spot with great food and friendly service. Nice atmosphere and reasonably priced too. Lots of veggie options.

El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
places that live and breathe such exciting energy
regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants
