The owner was very nice and welcoming. Service was fast and efficient, even though the restaurant was almost full. The food was quite good; I particularly enjoyed the mushroom cannellonis. Overall a good choice when you're in the Gracia neighborhood!

Owners are relaxed and smiling. The rooms are friendly and informal. Food is a parade of the simplest catalonian dishes and street food, well prepared and shown...Simplicity and taste are two good words to decribe the situation. Prices are affordable and well tuned to the overall service

Owner speaks no Englehart she but fun... More

The owner was very friendly and the service was fast. Sadly, the food was quite average and a bit pricey for what was in our plate. Overall, a good place to have lunch or to dine with friends. Don't expect an exceptional experience.

This is a perfect place for having a good time ;-) ... We went there for lunch on a Thursday early January at about 1:15pm. Which was somehow a bit too early. However we were asked by the cook to wait for a few minutes until the owner arrives. 15 minutes later we were able to order our lunch with... More

The place is decorated in a clinical, minimal way - really not the type of place you would find cosy or welcoming so I wasn't sure when I entered. Our waiter was nice but the food wasn't great. The bravas were ok, I've definitely had worse, and the vegetable tempura was nice but expensive for what it was. My friends... More

Came here a couple days prior on a Devour Barcelona food tour. Had to come back for the food and warm hospitality. Owner operator is a gem! Just ask what is great today, what are your favorites from food to Wine and beer. Amazing lightly battered and just fried small fish, Azorr negro with cuttlefish and terrific patron peppers. Will...

Staying in Gracia

Neighbourhood Profile
Gracia literally stands out from the pack. It used to be an independent town until late into the 19th century. Though it’s just a short commute away from the centre, a visit here feels like you’re in a whole different city. The bohemian vibe has drawn many international artists to this area, resulting in a wide selection of galleries, live music and artsy boutique stores. The nightlife is centered around the vibrant Gracia’s plaças, where young and old gather to enjoy a drink outside. Carrer de Verdi, its main street, offers affordable restaurants and a movie theatre that screens new as well as classic films in their original language. However Gracia's greatest treasure lies just up the hill at Guell Park, where Antoni Gaudi's vibrant and revolutionary art sculptures stand atop unequaled views of Barcelona.
