If you are looking for a restaurant, do not go in to this one. It is a tourist trap. Even if they gave you the food for free -- and they do not -- it would not be worth it.

The food in this restaurant is the lowest quality possible and very stingy on the ingredients, the tapas dishes aare terrible, the chicken paella is rather Indian biryani with chicken skin and bones only and lots of oil on rice!

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
