We arrived without a reservation on a Saturday but they were able to get us a table quickly. While a few of our choices on the menu were not available they selected some great alternatives. The mini chilli sausages were an especial standout

The food was top notch, the service staff was friendly and knowledgeable about the food and wine pairings. They take their ham very serious and it shows...probably the best we have had during our Spain vacation. Further, the prices were reasonable. The atmosphere was perfect.

El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
places that live and breathe such exciting energy
regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants

If possible, call them during their work hours. I tried to do it myself, but it was tough. They are always so busy. Open only at night and closed on Sundays. We were lucky. We happened to be walking by right when they opened... More
