My paella was pretty bland, and the atmosphere was pretty dark. It was all just very ok, and nothing special.

Stayed nearby and came for dinner. Smoking is just inside and further inside is smoke free. Good waiter, engaging and helpful. Lots of choices, a bit of everything from simple plates and salads to more complicated dishes, and steaks as well. Nice wine list, very affordable. Had a great time with the staff, very welcoming and friendly. Enjoy!

We chose this restaurant for our final night in Barcelona due to its lovely outdoor terrace. The service was friendly, welcoming and efficient. Unfortunately the food did not live up the the previous nights restaurant we had dined in and the paella we chose were two different ones, mine being seafood and my husbands a chicken paella but they both...

Nothing "special" but good. Service not very quick, although the place was nearly empty. Problems arise when you try to speak English, and the waiter wants you to speak Italian "because he understands it anyway" as he said... but then you receive things you had cancelled or you receive sauces on a Hamburger when you clearly said "NO sauces". Anyway,... More

The promotion person for the club saw us in the street and convinced us to come in to this restaurant. He got us inside by saying he would give us some free drinks. They asked us if we wanted some bread for the table so we said yes. However, when we got the bill they had charged us £40 for... More

We like to eat out when abroad and try as many different eating places as possible. This one was recommended to us by the hotel and again they came up trumps. Very handy to La Ramblas and close tro Liceu metro. Staff were friendly although at times hard to find as it got busier. The whole food experience was very... More

To find a good place for having lunch in the center of the city is not easy. But this restaurant is quite good. I was for the first time there last March. I saw that they had paella. Too many restaurants have the same stir-fry for paella and fideuà, but paella is prepared with rice, and fideuà with vermicelli. Fideuà... More

First night in Barcelona we found the living Restaurant (Living Lounge). We had a lovely meal there. The staff were very attentive and looked after us well. Recommended early evening as not so full.

Waiter wasn't very attentive. Had to ask a couple of times for refills. Paella was over cooked. Lobster was was hard to eat. Wasn't much in the way of actual seafood in our paella. I'd recommend a new chef.
