The service was great, the food was delicious and the prices were affordable. Would definitely recommend especially if you're an out-of-towner looking for a good place to eat!

Not a bad sote to have a burger in Barcelona. It could be a little more gourmet and offer different tapas.. Indeed it is an average burger spot in Barcelona downtown

We were looking for somewhere close by to have a quick burger, nothing fancy. This hit the spot. We both had the Johnny Depp burgers, nice big patties and well made. €26 for both meals plus a coke and a beer. Drinks a but overpriced but we were happy enough. Tables were a bit close together.

There were only a few tourists inside which should have been my first clue that this place was a tourist trap overcharging and cutting corners. I had the "sautéed mushrooms with garlic and parsley" which I'm sure were canned mushrooms heated in olive oil and the fishermens mussels which again I'm sure they substituted with canned mussels in a watered...

Cool atmosphere and decor in this restaurant. Chicken paella was great, as were the sangrias! Top notch, service was fast and attentive and servers could speak great English which was nice. Didn't stay long but enjoyed it nonetheless.

The food in this restaurant is very tasty. I've tried other establishments and they don't compare to this one. The chicken paella is a must. Been here 3 days in a row.
