What a lovely find. Welcoming and extremely attentive. Our waiter explained the wines, the sauces and the dishes; lovely chap. Argentinian sausage sandwich for me as a starter and then the lovely pork for mains. The portions were more than ample. It was very busy and full of locals out enjoying themselves. I liked the background Jazz, the layout and... More

I had read the reviews before I made a booking for a table of eleven. The staff are wonderful and seated us all quickly. Service, food and drinks were delicious and exquisitely presented. The booking online a number of months ago was efficient and friendly. Can't wait to return to this excellent restaurant in the El Born area.

We stumbled into this Argentinian restaurant after several other choices didn't pan out. Boy were we glad. Come here just to try the beef empanadas, they are some of the best beef dishes I've ever had anywhere. The rest of the menu is wonderful - good seafood linguine and tasty ribs, all served in a stylish, quiet atmosphere with attentive... More

I seem to do this a lot...but we stumbled on this one looking for somewhere else! A good job we did because the food was outstanding. It's an Argentinian restaurant so the meat was the main draw for us; and it didn't dissapoint. My wife had the filet mignon and I had the entrecot; both cooked to perfection and great... More

Excellent if you like good steak & recommend Catalan red wine. Chilled atmosphere with lovely staff. Quite pricey but worth it.

We came across this restaurant while strolling round El Born area in a lovely little square. There were 8 of us and we all had the beef empanadas to start, they were lovely. I had the filet mignon and it was absolutely divine! Best steaks we have all had in ages. The staff were lovely and really helpful. Will definitely... More

Atmosphere,service by Omar and attention to detail were what made this restaurant our favourite in Barcelona. The food is top quality Argentinian, a change from Tapas. My husband had Linguine with seafood which he said was better than anything he had eaten in Italy recently. I had the grilled vegetables - magnificent! Presentation of food and the service were exemplary.... More

First time at this restaurant - brought by son & D-I-L. Apparently one of their favourites and we can see why. Excellent food, good service, ambience just to our liking (although we can see that others may think it a bit stark.) Not the cheapest, but we felt that we got what we paid for- and would certainly go again.

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighbourhood Profile
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 ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
