We were in Barcelona for my wife's birthday and the restaurant was recommended by our hotel reception. Although small the restaurant is cosy and the food was wonderful, as was the wine. An excellent evening.

This restaurant is by far the best option in the neighbourhood when looking for the best cuts of beef. Although at busy times an extra waiter wouldn't be a luxury, they never disappoint in overall experience in quality and service.
