Great choice of food, I loved the beef tail cannelloni starter and my husband had the scallops. Then we had the monk fish in red sauce and lamb for mains, both truly delicious. Finished with a selection of cheeses. The tables... More

This place offers creative cooking in an elegant setting for very fair prices. We had a set course dinner of 5-6 courses all were excellent and creative for 39 euros. There are also good wines for very fair prices. We could not have been happier

Considering it was Valentines you would... More

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
