Alarm bells should have rung when we arrived during peak lunch hour and it was completely empty. They served us red wine which would give vinegar a bad name. It was clearly off, but they argued when we sent it back, claiming it was 'vino seco'. The worst was yet to come, when they tried to intimidate us into paying... More

It's a tourist trap. There was a insect in the paela. Supermarket foods are more fresh than theirs. You may find lots of different options close to this area.

Ate here for lunch on our first day. nice service, good wine, frozen plain food. Would not recommend. Had the pizza and salad, which was nice and fresh but a bit bland.

Coming around here late Thursday night it was one of the only places where we could get a table - and the is an obvious reason for that: This must be amongst the 10 worst restaurants in Barcelona - the food is simply terrible

There wasn't anything negative about this visit. Out black rice paella was delicious and our salad was fresh. Prices were decent. The staff were really friendly too, although didn't speak much English.

Be aware! This is the worst place I have ever visited in Barcelona if not in the whole Spain. Tapas are prepared only for idiotic tourists who will never return here and nobody cares for this. Bread is Tesco like. Serano is cheapest supermarket ham... Wine... Just do not do that!

Looks nice, but the food is terrible and expensive. Paella with chicken is just some frozen rice with 2 chicken pieces... The toilet is dirty.
