Lovely local catalan restaurant that offers reservation. They have a lot of tables available. It was quite slow during a Wednesday night however don't let the lack of customers/diners sway you from eating at this place.

This was our first restaurant after landing. Eating a hearty meal totally powered us for the night.

The croquettas de Pollo was great. Good flavor and crunchy texture. I could eat it all day

Gambas Al Ajillo was properly cooked. My mind was in awe how soft the prawns were. Typically, most restaurants tend to overcook the prawns, the prawns still maintained its softness. The garlic flavor was subtle and did not overpower the sweetness of the shrimp. The oil/sauce is to be mopped up by the bread they provide

Paella Mixta at €15 was a bargain. Very hearty and each bite was brusting with flavor. It will bring you to the seaside. Perfectly cooked rice and enough soccarat that gives it a nice texture.

Their Cochinilla was fork tender. Each inch of the pork is well seasoned. There was no gamey or bland flavor. My 2 1/2 year old daughter loved it. One of the best cochinilla I've ever had.

I recommend making a reservation using "theFork" app and get a nice discount. Our meal was €77 and after the discount was €46. Super steal if you asked me. This is easily a $150+ meal in the US and you won't get the same love/flavor/quality.

Booked this on Thefork with a good discount. Food exceeded our expectations (truthfully, it looked a bit touristy with the pictures on the menu) and was quite tasty. Good value with or without the discount.

We been here two times during our stay in Barcelona. Both times we had a great meal with more than enough food. Both times we starte with a few tapas. They were fresh and very tasty. The main course was meat on the grill. Great, rich taste.

The staf is very friendly and professional.

The restaurant is cosy and beautiful decorated. Also very clean.

My partner and I came here after looking on Tripadvisor for a reasonably priced restaurant that does a great Paella and found this restaurant. We even managed to get a 50% discount by booking through Tripadvisor. The food was delicious and the service was very good! The seafood soup is great as a starter and definitely go with one of the paellas as a main. To top the meal off we were given free shots of Limoncello at the end of the meal. Would highly recommend this restaurant.
