OK place to go after a terrible trip. Relatively cheap, relatively bland food. Staff seemed unfriendly and annoyed that a tourist was in their restaurant. Only positive was the nice wine. Wouldn't go back.

After a long morning of walking, shopping and being good tourists, we all needed a break - with alcohol, food, somewhere to watch the world go by and not in a hot, sunny piazza. A local store keeper recommended this spot and it was perfect. We sat in the window, drank Sangria and local beers, ate cheap tapas and collected... More

We stopped by for lunch as a group of ten, and were running on a schedule. The staff were extremely welcoming and helpful in describing the menu to us (our spanish is beyond terrible). I shared a platter for two with a friend and the others ordered single menu items and a dessert. The platter was great; lots of meats... More

I paid 10 euro for a nice dish of fried salmon served with salad. Mineral water to drink and coffee afterwards. The food was good, service swift and it was really the best and healthiest meal I had during my stay in Barcelona.

Great, authentic local food. Try the menú del día: 2 courses, bread, drink and coffee/desert for 12€. Excellent value for money.

Really sweet restaurant. Nice atmosphere with excellent service. Chicken was great, cod just ok and Brie salad with pears was exceptional. Rice pudding excellent. Worth a visit. Only breakfast and lunch served.

There is a wide selection of plates -- at least early on -- for lunch. As they sell out, however, they erase the plates from the chalkboard menu. If you arrive at 3:00, there will not be much left. The service is fast and efficient. The restaurant can get noisy.

Tucked away from the main drag this is an authentic Spanish tapas spot - frequented by locals. The atmosphere is a blast, the food choices fun and exciting and the service is efficient, if not overly friendly.

Local people are the main clients here. The menu is €10 for main course, postre, drink and bread. Add €2 for a starter. The food is freshly cooked and tasty, with enough choices. Despite there being no tele the noise level is high, although you could say that there is a lot of atmosphere. The waiting staff are friendly and... More
