The 2,50€ mojitos are an absolute treat - as well as the range of super tasty cocktails on the menu. The atmosphere is lively and upbeat, the service is good and the food is also great. I was shown this bar upon moving to Barcelona and proceeded to take near enough every visitor to it! My friend described it as... More

€2,5 mojitos is right up my alley, although they were a bit small. We went over to the bar across the street, with bigger mojitos:) The empanadas were tasty though!

We went here to have a saturday lunch. Food was good. And we enjoy the decoration of restaurant. It took quite a long time to have the lunch, but we aren't in hurry.

The food is good but the staff act as if they don't have a clue. The waitress was absolutely clueless. She brought the menu and they took their time. When they brought the empanadas, they didn't bring the cutlery after 15 minutes, so when they did, the empanadas were cold. The guy had to remind her to bring the cutlery... More

My experience with this place was not good at all. We went there to grab some drinks with a couple of friends. I took 3 glasses of wine (vino de casa) and a piece of empanada con carne, the next day I spent in bed vomiting. I guess the alcohol was not good and probably mixed with something bed. At... More

It hás a cool decoration, walls fully painted with a bunch of references to music and Barcelona. Nice meals for a fair price. Eat in Lá Republica and go for a stroll in marine Gardena afterwards! The steak and the burguers are good! Order some empanadillas for starters, they are delicious!
