This is a bit of a hybrid review as my wife and I disagreed with the quality of the food. My coca with bacon and brie was superb but my wife complained that her Greek salad had too much goats cheese and not enough salad...More

We love mussels but were disappointed here. I had Belgian Style, but totally different with what I had in Belgium. Vegetables are not cooked enough and the soup didn't absorb mussel or vegetable, so it seemed that they cooked separately.

This restaurant offers a large selection of mussels prepared any possible way. Mussels arrive in a large pot so one portion is definitely enough. One of the choices we ordered (Diablo) was good, had large mussels well done, the other (Provancal) wasn't something that I...More

We had sangria, mussels, and chips. Mussels had no flavour, chips were meh and even the sangria was not good. We were very disappointed. So many great places to eat and we wasted a meal here...

I called here as the nearby restaurant I was planning to visit was closed. The orange decor is a little odd but I was glad in the end that I called here. I opted for a ham salad which came in a very generous portion...More

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
