I ate here many years ago on one of my first visits to Barcelona. Happened upon it again last week and was close to my hotel so although quite empty went in as was tired. Think it was over priced. Food average and wine was not that nice. Perhaps being empty should have warned me. It was just ok and... More

Visited with 3 friends whilst on holiday. Really good food, large selection and very tasty. Staff were polite and helpful, although it was quite late and it wasn't that busy. My only criticism is it was little expensive, but not massively overpriced.

Even though the menu is flirting with tourists and has very few fish and seafood options. The food brought to the table was nice plated and good seasoned. We had 8 tapas for 4 hungry persons, and we added 2 additional dishes and the food appeared very fast at our table. Pricing seems fair around 70 euros for all of... More

We were recommended this restaurant as being good for tapas. The staff were disinterested and when the food arrived it was very obviously deep fried grease...... not a great advert ......also expensive for what it was...... will not return

If you're looking for a quick stop snack or tourist trap tapas, this is your place. My family and I fondly call it 'plastic food', you immediately get the impression that the food had been heated in a microwave and tipped on to the plate. Avoid if possible.

My husband and I were looking for a place to eat close to our hotel on our first night in Barcelona. It is a small café with outdoor seating. The waiters were very friendly and helped us with the menu. Nothing fancy, but a good place to get tapas. In fact, we ate here another night while we were in... More

15 % additional charge to sit outside. €8 for about 8 cubes of monchego cheese...over priced for what it is.

Following the reviews here, I have visited this place. The prices were really expensive, paid 12 euros for 5 little pieces of meat (lol iberian). Extra 15% for sitting outside and the waiter was really bored and was acting like that he wanted us to leave. Paid 50 euros for 4 tiny plates and one beer and a glass of... More

We went syst arriving quite late in Barcelona. Food was lovely and open very late which was perfect. Nice service. The only problem is that we over ordered which was our fault. Dishes are very big and really tasty. Some of the tapas was meal size so be aware of this when ordering as dishes are very rich. Would definitely... More

I go in once or twice every year. Usually when im staying nearby and can't be bothered to arrange something else. It's allright and the food is good. But I miss that level of quality their food had 4-5 years ago. The menu has been cut back over the years aswel. And you guessed it; my favourite fish dishes were... More

Staying in El Raval

Neighbourhood Profile
El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
