Had a good meal here with my wife a couple of months ago. It's one of the better restaurants in Mataro with some different flavours. It is also well prices for the quality of the food. I would go again.
The feeling I get from this place is that the chef wants to have a gourmet place but doesn’t quite get there. He tries to put his mark on the recipes he makes but they just don’t turn out very well. The food is good...but quite small portions.
I left paying a price of gourmet meals but hungry at the end. Service was ok. Nothing to either praise highly or consider poor.
The water was filtered on premises which I like.
I think it could improve quite a bit.More
We had family lunch during weekdays and we were well impressed by the quality of the ingredients, nice presentation of the plates, great music ambience at the right level for keeping a conversation (jazzy style oldies) and good service. We asked for recommended dishes to...share. Calamari it’s a must, but I would put more salsa to dip-in!More
Highly recommended restaurant in Mataró city center. I went there with my best friend to have a nice dinner and it was.
We ordered the ham croquettes which were really amazing. The best croquettes I've ever eaten. You cannot miss them if you visit this...restaurant.
The steak tartar was also delicious. It was not the typical steak tartar that you can find in other restaurants but it was absolutely tasty.
We ordered also the scallops that were nice and also the smoked salmon carpaccio that I wouldn't recommend personally as I didn't like that much. However is one of the recommended dishes.
The price was also very reasonable taking into account the quality of the food and the amount of dishes that we got and a bottle of red wine. It was around 30 € per person and we left the place full.
The staff was very friendly and helpful.
Overall, a very good place in the center of Mataró for a very decent price. It is a must of the city.More
We ordered several courses.
Fish, meat, some starters and a bottle of wine.
The food is made with great ingredients, the only thing that I missed was seasoning.
Everything was a bit underseasoned and undersalted.
With proper seasoning the meal would be 5/5
The food in this place it’s just spectacular! The place is very beautiful and the stuff are great. The portions are not big but you share everything and it’s more then enough. Perfect for a dinner!
Recommend to everyone my friends!
We ate here on our first night in Spain and it was amazing! The lamb and duck were hits with the kids (which is not usual since they are very picky eaters) and the moscato was the best glass of moscato I've ever had! We...loved it so much that we ate here again on our last night in Spain. The wait staff speak perfect English and are very friendly. The atmosphere is great...almost as great as the chocolate dessert that my entire family devoured! Can't recommend enough... best meals we had in Spain by far!More
