A 'below average' dining experience. Nice staff. Dull food. Mushy risotto. And, to top things off, quite pricy.

Service in this place is terrible. Waiter and administrator didn't even say hi or give us menu. Moreover waiter didn't take an order even after we asked him to do that, he continued to clean glasses. We had to leave.

Overall food tastes ok but can be further improved by reducing the amount of oil used per serving. Service can be further improved by recommending food to customer since we r totally new in Spain.Nevertheless the environment n waiters r friendly.

Really great food. Loved everything they served. The Sangria that my husband tried was great. Breakfast croissants were yum. Vegetarian burger available too that was great to have.

Our party of three spent the afternoon taking a harbor cruise and walking along the coast. It was a perfect time to look for a place to eat fresh seafood. The restaurants right by the coast seemed expensive and not all that exciting except for...More

With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this

Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days
under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War
with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and
authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be
thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas
