They brought me a burnt paella in half an hour. Bad taste and expensive. I went in without seeing the reviews in tripadvisor because restaurant's name looks different fr?m outside.

We ate here twice. The paella was outstanding. We loved it. Plus the giant size beer of San Miguel is so good.

Price got up within seconds. Poor food and bad services rounded this wrong decision up. A must skip restaurant.

The Basque restaurant Mikel Etxea 1 is located right in the heart of Barcelona. It is renowned for its extensive tapas menu with more than 50 choices, some of which change daily. Stuffed Piquillo peppers, salt cod tortilla, chorizo and chistorra are all popular choices. Passers-by that decide to pop in are transported to a little corner of the Basque Country thanks to its decoration and its food. The average price for an à la carte meal is around 30 Euros.
