We went for a Sunday late lunch, the food was amazingly prepared. The staff were friendly and even spoke English. We will definitely go back there for dinner.

The staff were very happy and made us feel welcome. service was very quick. Bombas were great, but the big croquettes were a bit heavy. All the diners were offered a free shot of orujo which is a local liqueur. This was interesting to try. Overall was very much enjoyed.

Stopped here around 8 PM because we were starving and it was the only place we could get in. Waiters were pleasant and helpful, but the food was mediocre at best. Take your time and look around. There are much better places in Gracia than this.

Great steak, cooked perfectly (rare), with toasted bread and allioli. A relaxed atmosphere and couldn't fault the food. Staff eager to please and friendly.

We were attracted by the busy restaurant but this was the one mistake we should have avoided. The service was inexistant, the waiters dressed like teenagers and only caring about their private jokes. We ordered a paella & an entrecote, well the paella tasted like it was freshly unfrozen, and the entrecote which should have been rear beef according to... More

We ate lamb ribs, solomillo and entrecote - simple but excellent taste. Level of service was very good. Nice place which we found by chance.

The location and the atmosphere of this restaurant is excellent. You can order many different types of tapas, and excellent paella. Portions are big, food is very tasty. Highly recommended place in Gracia neighborhood.

We (4 of us) entered the restaurant for dinner late on a saturday. Service was reasonable but nothing special. I enjoyed the plate of cold cuts. The lamb chops dish was average with the ribs being on the dry side.

Ordered garlic prawns which still had the digestive tract, deep fried artichokes which couldn't be drier or more bland, patatas bravas which had a bland dressing that tasted like it was a supermarket bought thousand island dressing, & spanish omlette which tasted old, dry, bland and cardboard in texture. We observed the head cook who dished out a paella on... More

I have just joined trip adviser specially to warn you of this place. This is the third or fourth restaurant we've visited in Barcelona. (Have been in Europe for almost 5 weeks). My girlfriend and I were extremely hungry as it was almost 3pm and we had not eaten all day. Saw this place and it looked ok. With out... More

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.
