Menu outside advertised dishes 2€ cheaper than inside, 3€ cover charge and an uninspiring meal combined for a disappointing evening. Staff were not specially welcoming - in fact a couple walked out because there were no staff around when they entered the restaurant, despite waiting for several minutes.

Our waitress Laura was fantastic and very attentive to our needs, I had the Filet Steak which was delicious while my daughter had a very delicious salmon. I have to say I have walked past this place a hundred times and never imagined that it would be this good. It is a bit pricy but we will be back very... More

The menu focussed primarily on tapas, however the sign outside the restaurant said they also served paellas. Why this was not listed on the menu inside I have no idea but the paella itself was excellent. The service was polite. The decor features a lot of wine bottles stacked on the walls making the place feel perhaps a bit fancier... More

The menu said a lower price than the bill. The menu didn't include the tax!!! Go to another restaurant. There are plenty of good ones nearby.

Pretty much the standard menu for local restaurants including lamb, pork and cod served in various ways. There are half a dozen tables downstairs which felt over-lit, and a dozen or more upstairs in a more traditional dining room - rustic/utilitarian rather than comfortable. The food was OK - nothing special - and the presentation was mediocre (my plate had... More

Very pleasant helpful staff in this old fashioned feeling (in a good way) restaurant. One dish stood out as an absolute must, the Seared Duck Foie Gras on hot caramelised apple slices. Probably the most tasty thing we have ever eaten anywhere.

Lovely location quite near to the cathedral, authentic Spanish and Catalan food, with genuine, great service. This restaurant has a very traditional design and layout. Not disappointed, had a really nice sirloin steak that melted like a fillet, lots of choices on the menu, very nice waitress. I can recommend this place if you want real authentic Spanish/Catalan food and... More

We ate here on new years eve 2016 into 2017. There were 6 in our party including two fussy teenagers but everyone was delighted with their meal. It was the friendliness of the staff that encouraged us to book when we went in to enquire. They spoke excellent english and were only too happy to help. The service was excellent... More

Intimate ambience, maybe different upstairs but never went there. The meny had several Majorcan dishes highlighted which made us choose three of them. Very tasty and well prepared. Though to us the (sliced) green pepper in the sea food mix came as a surprise, probably not all all for those not as sensitive as us. The staff was attentative which... More
