Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The food was fantastic and all presented beautifully. Highlights were the sirloin and marrow (the best thing we ate all holiday!) and the skewer. The service was fantastic and so were the craft beer and cocktail options. I would highly recommend a visit here!

Absolutely delicious ( love the sirloin and marrow kebab). Staff were friendly and efficient. (Hamidou looked after us and had great recommendations) Everything was full of smokey, spicy, rustic flavours. Atmosphere was a vibe and the interior design is on point. P.S. if your looking...for some funky new music the restaurant playlist will give you everything you need.More

A group of four visiting Barcelona we enjoyed a great meal in S&M. The open omelette was great as were the meatballs and beetroot carpaccio. For mains the beef skewer was a real winner so fresh zingy and tasty. Lovely wine and great service from...Homidou made the evening a memorable one. Highly recommend this place.More

Spent our last night in Barcelona here and could not have asked for a better experience. The vibe was right — fun and fresh with a buzz in the air. The folks who work there are having fun, and the energy passes on the the...guests. The food is next level. A flavor pallet that’s calling me back for more. Just wonderful from the moment we walked in, until the moment we walked out. Special shout out to Rocio who made our last night special.More

Oh my god! The food and drinks are not from this planet. Every single dish was just outstanding and so flavourful. I immediately felt like going out in Tel Aviv.
