Went here three times as it was so easy, just over the road from Expo. Tapas and main meals excellent and not expensive. €11 for a gorgeous bottle of rose wine, so we had plenty of those! Friendly staff who made you feel welcome, would highly recommend.

Amazing food with amazing service. Well worth a visit and tried the 4 year aged ham, cut and served table side. Steak tartar table side was also a treat.

We came here just by walking by. It was a spontanious decision. From the outside it looked not to overwelming, but the authentic Food and especially the fish we had was very good. Once back in Barcelona I would return to this Location. It was a pleasure.

Modest look from the outside, but a solid meal in a correct environment. Prices are not cheap, but ingredients seem (and taste) first quality. Boquerones are a highly recommended starter because of the performance by the owner when preparing them in front of the costumers.

Went to this restaurant last year. Food was terrible and incredibly over priced. The place was empty apart from one table of equally angry customers. Ordered some prawns and squid - when it arrived there was very little on the plate. We both had a soft drink each and the bill was over €100. Avoid!

It's a little off the touristy track, but we had a good experience. The food is very good, but their specialty is the Boquerones (anchovies). Make sure you order this dish, and then sit back and enjoy the show ...

As we were staying in the Expo hotel opposite JJ and going by previous reviews we decided to try this restaurant. Our main problem was that nowhere opens to eat until 8pm and we prefer to eat earlier than that (also we had been up since 6am that morning so were tired) We were the only ones in there and... More
