Went there because of the great reviews and wasn’t disappointed. Like the other reviews the service and food was fantastic. I worry sometimes with reviews but this one was right on. If I ever find myself in Barcelona again I’ll for sure go.

Highly recommended - delicious food - nice atmosphere with live guitar and saxophone. Also we got 30% on a la carte menu because we book a table through trip advisor! We will visit it again for sure.
