Have eaten here before in two's and three's. This lunch was a working business lunch with around 12 people. Service was excellent, did not break up the conversation as sometimes happens and the food was perfect - as was the wine.

This is a high standard restaurant in upper Barcelona. The venue is beautiful, originally decorated, surrounded by plants and natural motives. The cuisine is as well striking, one can't be surprised by the experience. 100 % recommended for special occasions.

Management was exceptionally pleasant. Food and wine were quite good. Outdoor patio eating was so tranquil. A great place to relax and catch up with a friend. Parking all around this place. Probably a great place for a private party. Great value!!

Loved the location and service. Food very good and lots of choice but no "wow" factor at lunch. Can imagine it is better in the evening when full.

A hidden gem in Barcelona which we only found out through a friend locally. Typically attended by Spanish, we were the only English speaking. The food was sublime, just amazing and great service.
