Manages to honor Spanish ingredients and traditions while providing a fresh, flavorful experience. Delightful service as well. and very nicely paced courses. Also a cute and cozy dining room - quite romantic.

On a recommendation from a co worker in Canada who once visited this wonderful gem. We arrived without a reservation which is ill advised. However we were accommodated and given a seat for dinner at 6:30. We had the red house wine which was nice...More

Not a big place but big enough and very well laid out inside with a bar and several dining tables. We sat near the fire (not lit - way too hot) and had an excellent meal. Servers were extremely friendly and attentive. Food very tasty...More

Good place to sit down and relax. Enjoy the good food, though the portion is small, the price is also. Close to Arc de Triomf.

This Little bar its very comfy, the food was good but a litlle over priced for the size of the portions. The service was a bit annoying but not unattended. Its a normal bar & restaurant, you wont get dissapointed but its average.

The food was absolutely stunning, plate after plate of large sharing tapas without a terracotta dish in sight! The yellow beetroot and short rib were absolute favourites and the staff were very attentive. Would highly recommend and next time in Barcelona will be back!

El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
places that live and breathe such exciting energy
regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants
