Went here on a recommendation from a tour guide. Full of locals drinking sangria and eating paella. They serve tapas and Catalan specialties. I had the duck which was outstanding. Everything we ordered was delicious. Highly recommend.

Low key quick service. Done with locals and taste authentic Catalan food. The owner is always in the building and will greet you personally. So good we came here twice!

We got here by chance, we where just passing by and we liked the atmosphere. The food was very tasty, we had grilled octopus and chicken with grilled vegetables. It was perfect for dinner. The sangria was probably the best that we had in Barcelona....More
