Food was brilliant. We had street entertainers a couple of feet away, and the host Arnesto was a amiable, friendly conversationalist who did everything to make our evening very enjoyable.

Great location as it is in the Placa Reial. Grab an outdoor table and watch the entertainers. The location is on a corner but you are still able to witness all of the action. The seafood paella was delicious and actually better than a restaurant...More

Selected this place for the location without checking reviews. The service was ok but the food - the food was AWFUL. So much so that we left after a few forkfuls. Do yourself a favour and don't eat here. It's atrocious.

Visited this restaurant in the corner of Placa Reial. Menu of the day was ok and very feasibly priced. Service was very friendly and accommodating although slow. There was a big group of us but no problem fitting us in.

Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this

under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War
with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and
authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be
thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas
brought to life by the many small bars and local
