I had a lovely meal here with my Mum and the quality and menu choices were good particularly for the cost and central, touristy location of the restaurant. I believe it is part of a chain which may account for the slightly ambivalent service. By no means rude just not quite what you'd expect given the standard of food and... More

Had an evening meal here, the food was of an excellent standard as were the drinks (I recommend the Sangria). The Service however was a bit slap dash . Plates being (for want of a better word) thrown on to the table. We were made to feel like an inconvenience. Such a shame.... good manners cost nothing.

My boyfriend and I went here for Valentine's dinner. It was the best restaurant we went to during our 4 day stay. We had the patatas bravas, paella, and sangria. I would highly recommend.

The good news is they have an allergen list of what's on the menu. The less good news is that left almost no choice. Lamb shanks were massive and tasty but didn't live up to the gluten free article which praised it. Simply because very little choice. Although Barcelona is such a difficult place to find anything I could eat... More

Highly recommend if your visiting the gothic area of Barcelona.

The ambience and decor is very nice, service is excellent, food is very good. They have a lunch menu for 12€ and paella is well priced and reasonably priced. House wine is quite acceptable and cheap.

Food was worth its money - not heavily priced - but not much to it! Lacked a lot of taste! Average food for an average price
