The service, food and location were great. We were only disappointed in the kangaroo tapas. Other than that everything was delicious! Make sure you try the squid - one of the best I've tried. It takes a bit more time to get it prepared, but...More

If you are looking for another bad tapas restaurant this is the place! We order 4 tapas and they were all badly cooked.

Discovered this small restaurant (although it does have extensive outside seating like all spanish restaurants) tucked away in Barcelona. My wife had a great goats cheese salad which was embarrassingly cheap (honestly guys put the price up). I had Tuna tartar which was a little...More

Went here last December but only just got round to reviewing it after being reminded of it! It is cosy and popular. Fresh food and very big portions. Will definitely return on my next visit to Bcn.

We ate lunch twice here during our stay in Barcelona. Good salad with wine for resonable prices. The seats outside are located in a pleasant and calm square.

FIrst night in Barcelona and ventured here after reading about it. Hidden area in Born that is just special. Authentic and locals ..no tourists were here. Just loved it!

El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
places that live and breathe such exciting energy
regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants
