This is a really must go place. The food is very good and tasty (and also cheap), and the people working there are kind and nice. I strongly recommend this restaurant in Vilanova.

We visited this restaurant on the first night of our trip and it was a fairly steep initiation in the Catalan charm! The food was fresh and of good quality and the house wine was delightful! The waiter was so friendly and tried hard with his limited English and our very limited Spanish! The hazelnut liqueur was out of this... More

Don't get me wrong. This is a reasonable place. If you'll go there, chances are you will leave satisfied. however, locally this is considered like the place to go and it really isn't very special. Go here if invited. If not, go somewhere else.

We went there with our family of four at 8:00 pm on a Saturday. It was already packed, but we were able to get a seat at the bar. It was so much fun, with such a great selection of tapas. Our Spanish is not good, and they were so great at doing their best to communicate with us. When... More

The best place I ate in town. The service is really good, well organize and the prices of the meals are really low. If you are looking for a place to eat seafood I guess this is the place you are looking for.

This is one of our favourite restaurants in Vilanova and one we have visited many times over the years. The food is always great quality and value and the service warm and friendly. The only problem is getting a table!! If you don't mind eating early, getting to the restaurant before normal Spanish meal times is recommended.

This is an excellent place for Tapas, the last time prior to this that I ate there was in 1992 that is how long they have been in business. So good I had to eat there twice during my holiday!
