Music is cheesy covers of 90s hits. Didn't expect one of the tapas plates to appear like canned tuna. It had thinly sliced tomatoes and a mountain of raw onion rings. Bright lights, as much atmosphere as a 24 hour convenience store. Chipped glasses. Waiters standing right behind you whole time. Clothes smell like grease after leaving. Service friendly. Fast service.

Tasty tapas. We had a very enjoyable meal. They couldn't accommodate our party of eight inside but waived their usual 20% surcharge for sitting in the terrace. Excellent ham. The wait staff were very nice.

We chose this location because it was well reviewed and because it was close to the Magic Fountains. After dinner, we strolled to the fountains and saw a wonderful light show.

We wanted to eat at the terrace, which was no problem for the waitress, however once we received the menu there was a note at the bottom saying that eating outside adds 20% (!) to all prices. We therefore decided to go inside. The waitress made no fuss about this, but she could at least mentioned this before.
The choice of tapas was rich and the presentation was also very nice. Three tapas proved to be more than enough for two people.
Overall a nice experience with tasty food from a room with a view (placa espanyol)

We went in mainly due to us being at placa Espanya and seeing the favourable reviews. We went in, were greeted very pleasantly and the waitress answered all the questions we had.

We picked 4 tapas and when we came to order, I was quite disappointed that 2 of the 4 were unavailable. We picked 2 more and waited. Through some turn of fate, the 2 "replacement" dishes were 2 of the most tasty plates of food I have ever eaten. The Iberian pork loin and mini burgers were incredible. A must visit if you're in the area or even if you're not.
