We liked this restaurant a lot, the choice and variety of dishes was superb. So many dishes I had not tried before. You collect your food via self service and pay according to the number of plates/skewers you have had. Word of warning, if you have a very large appetite it could get expensive, but it's quite reasonably priced otherwise.... More

The Catalans said "pika-pika" - a lot of different kind of foods in small portion and you can choose what you want - fishes, meats, cheese, ... very tasty and fantastic. Very good steak and nice red wine. Very good choise for all who would like to tests the Catalanya´s foods.

They have the biggest selection of pintxos in Girona. Well presented and nice for a dinner with friends. They have also a restaurant area well served with more elaborate dishes of fish and meat.

This restaurant was exactly as you would imagine your perfect tapas bar. Great selection of good food, replenished often; staff were very helpful and it has a good selection of wines and some interesting local beers. First class and great fun. Iain

Situated near the dismal Devesa Park ( see my review ) this restaurant offers great food and service. There is a reasonable choice for each of the three courses and you can sit inside or outside. I sat outside as the weather was sunny for a change !! I had a delicious seafood salad ,meat and potatoes plus fruit for... More

Have been to this restaurant 3 times now and each time we have had a wide selection of delicious tapas and a superb meal with good inexpensive wine. The staff are very attentive, helpful and spoke good English.

We were seduced by the amazing photos of a buffet of delicious tapas, and the reviews saying how authentic this place was..... I think they are confusing this restaurant with is sister in Barcelona ( where you are redirected to oil you try to find the website for this restaurant!) We went at lunchtime and asked where the tapas selection... More

We booked a table for lunch as we had a day trip to Girona when visiting the Costa Brava. We solely booked bask on reviews and photos that this place offered a great selection of Tapas... Well, we ate on a Monday (October 3rd) and there was not a tapas dish to be seen! We entered a near-empty restaurant at... More

We have visited this restaurant several times either to take advantage of the lunch menu, night time pinxos or just for a la carte raciones in the evening. The food has always been interesting, the quality good and we especially like the harder-to-find location which limits tourist trade and keeps a check on the pricing. Not the restaurant's fault but... More
