Intimate Tapas restaurant filled with locals and friendly, helpful staff! So glad our guide chose this place for lunch and a rest before our afternoon walking tour of the Gothic Quarter! Excellent food and fun place!

Luckily for us, we found this place by chance at lunchtime. We went for the three course set lunch, sampling all of the options that we could, and the standard of the food was staggering considering the price; amazing flavours, presentation, fresh ingredients and the service was also great - thanks for an amazing meal!

Been here once last year, in August - after reading some amazing reviews, decided to give it a go... and we were not disappointed. The service and food were so good, and spot on, that we’ve felt another visit was just in order.
Unlike my previous visit, this time I wasn’t hangover, so I could enjoy it even more - didn’t have a problem booking a table over the phone a few hours earlier, upon arrival was greeted by the amazing team and had the excellent Giselle as my server.
We just had some small tapas to share, the excellent crab tempura, patatas bravas and the bbq pork ribs.
Food was great, very tasty and the beer was nice and Cold. Giselle was excellent and made us feel very welcomed. I work as a restaurant manager in London and I truly wish I had someone like her on my team! A true asset to the company.
I’m really looking forward to my next visit to Barcelona, where once more we will pay a visit!
I strongly recommend this place :)

My family of four had a wonderful brunch on Easter Sunday. The food was fabulous and the atmosphere was warm, cozy and friendly.

The pancakes with dulce de leche and bananas was delicious, focaccia with bacon, avocado and jalapeño was yummy. Venetian toast with sausage was good as was the Eggs Benedict and smoked salmon. The patatas bravas sauce was good. The mushroom croquetas were also good. They serve tea in little pots and that was a nice touch you don’t get very often in Barcelona. They also serve fresh squeezed lemonade and orange juice.

Would highly recommend this lovely little place with reasonable prices. But make reservations as it’s small and very popular.

I walked here from La Família Sagrada for a late breakfast/brunch midweek. Warm friendly service and delicious food. It’s a cozy place very reasonably priced. Would have went again if I had had time.
