Rude personnel, bad service, mediocre food, ridiculously small portions and high prices. I wish I'd checked the reviews before I went in.

A promising start that very rapidly went downhill when the food arrived. Ordered Seafood Yakisoba which was piping hot with a few small shrimps and tiny pieces of squid. The vegetable elements were very finely shredded and was lucky if they filled one tablespoon in total. Most unhappy and can only say will not be returning. Could have had a... More

We are from Barcelona and when we arrived at udon they gave us the normal menu and we asked for the "special/lunch menu", which is much cheaper than the normal menu on weekdays. They gave it to us, but when the tourist next to us asked for this special menu they started lying to her saying that we were vip... More

Ate here in a break from the Picasso Museum. The buckwheat noodle soup was very good, also recommend the vegetable tempura appetizer.

We really loved our meal here. Relatively inexpensive, pleasant atmosphere, aesthetic bowls. I enjoyed my Gyozas and the 'Original Chicken Curry' and my family enjoyed two different soups, with buckwheat noodles. Location just steps away from the Picasso museum.

I had Ramen Miso - with pieces of FAT in it. Seriously! There were two tiny pieces of pork in the soup, but only 10% of those were meat, the rest was fat. When I asked the waitress, she said it was supposed to be like that. Portion sizes are very small - my husband and my son had to... More

クスクスみたいな米を使った寿司で、とても寿司や日本食と言えない。辛うじて、店の雰囲気が良いのと サービスが良いので、2つ星をつけました。 Please do not think these dishes are Japanese! As Japanese, sushi is not made of rice, but something like couscous. It is really pity I happened to stop in this restaurant. Maybe to have cofee is good because its toilet is clean.

Waste of money. It is cheaper and better tasting to buy your own ingredients and make the food at home...my plate was a result of frozen veggies, yatekomo noodles and cartilage called "beef". You would think the service would make up for the mediocre cooking, but you are wrong. Bad food, bad service. Will never waste my time and money... More

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighbourhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
