Head for this restaurant each time we visit Barcelona. Probably the best grilled chicken in Europe, and I have never found better. The food comes from an olde-worlde kitchen, heated with solid fuel, piping hot and delicious. The staff are great and I can't wait...More

We had a good meal here - nothing special - rather over-priced and living on its reputation and probably former glory. The suckling pig was very tasty. Service initially slow. Plenty better in Barcelona.

A MUST! Oldest restaurant in Barcelona. Don't be mislead by the small entrance. Walk past the bar and you will be led through the kitchen to an antique lined restaurant. The oysters where fresh and devine, the (caracoles) snails melt in your mouth. We had...More
