On our recent visit to Barcelona we stumbled across this fantastic restaurant just as we were coming out of the Nou Camp tour and museum. It is located a few yards behind the traffic lights opposite the Nou Camp. Initially we had sat outside just for a drink and the outside terrace was very busy with locals, always a good... More

We live nearby and we love this place.Food always fresh and tasty.A big choice of tapas and kitchen is always open.I would recommend to everyone who like good food for a very reasonable price.Usually lunch here for two with drinks and 4-5 tapas costs around 30 euros.

Food is correct, service is correct... however, I had the impression that everything fell short. That's why I think my experience can be described with the word soulless. There was nothing in my food or service that made me remember my dinner at Cargolet. Just food done with any single intention to deliver a good experience to the customer.

Found by accident while on business. Busy little restaurant, nice inside but sat outside. Menu in English and Spanish. Had the set menu for €9.00, starter, mains and dessert or coffee. Fish soup to start, delicious. Beef and chips to follow, delicious also and not too big a portion, just perfect for lunch. Staff friendly and prompt, if I lived... More

The terrace was full, so that is a good sign: But sorry to say: the food was really bad: tasteless and fat. Service was friendly and fast, but the food makes me advice to avoid the place.

We were... More
