We were 6 at the table and each of us could write an awful review of this place. None of us got the meal we ordered. And each plate was served at a different time. We ordered a side order of rice that arrived exactly 10 minutes after the steak.
If you have a choice (and you have), go somewhere else and do yourself a favour.

We had a nice lunch at this restaurant. It has a typical catalan athmosphere and traditional food. We recomend the whiskey desert.

We visited in December 2017 and had been told this is a hidden gem in a world of seafood in Barcelona that should not be missed. There were 3 of us eating and we asked for steamed muscles and the waiter brought out a platter full to the top with muscles cooked in a tomato sauce that gave the muscles great flavor. Then we asked for shrimp, and again he brought out a plate of steamed shrimp that was not only beautiful to look at but it smelled so good that we jumped right in. The shrimp were very tasty and we started eating so quickly that we did not get a full picture of the beauty of the plate as it was presented. Next the waiter suggested we have grilled fish. Once again the waiter brought out a platter of three different types of fish that were all prepared superbly. We enjoyed this meal so much, it was probably my favorite meal in Barcelona. The waiter could not have been more friendly and helpful. Even the general manager came out to make sure we were enjoying our stay with them and that the food was as we wanted it. The paella looked scrumptious with many of the other lunch patrons enjoying it. All in all this is a restaurant that you should not miss while in Barcelona. We took a taxi from the Sagrada Familia area just to have lunch there. The prices are reasonable for the food and the wine. We also met the owner while were finishing our late lunch and he could not have been more gracious. We had a blast with the wait staff and the management. Put this restaurant on your list of to do's while visiting Barcelona.

This was the worst meal I have ever had out. Service was terrible - I tried to order the grill but the waiter was extremely persistent in suggesting we should get the fried platter. I acquiesced. It turned up really quickly so cant have been cooked fresh. Tasted like rubber. Prawns full of grit. Revolting. Waiter then kept pretending to misunderstand my complaints. What a rip off!! Never again!!

We decided to have a lunch at Toc de Mar without knowing what to expect. We were very surprised with both quality and quantity of food. Everything was super delicious and portions big. Also the waiter Tarek was great and he even tried to speak few words in our language. Highly recommended place! We will come back.
