This restaurant's fare are classic Spanish and Catalan dishes, with a modern touch and prime ingredients. While not cheap, it's an excellent value for money. I live close to the restaurant and it's the place to go when celebrating something or having a visit. They also have two more restaurants, one close to Sants Railway station (La Masia del Rocxi)...

Located rather far from the city centre, this cosy restaurant offers both good food and service. I ordered fried cod with mushroom almond sauce, which was a tad salty for my taste but nevertheless excellent. Worth a visit!

They are specialist in "snails". Another dish that needs a special mention is the "pigs feet with goose liver". Perhaps most of the dishes are to big. I will suggest to order a little less. Everton g is tasteful and service is correct. The wine cellar is a little bit short.

Only the snails were not finished by all as not all people like them, but there was plenty of other brilliant food that was great. A... More

The menu was great. We were 6 and some of us order stone meat. It was great. We also order duck rice, and traditional catalan soup. Deserts are great also. It wasn't perfect due to the waiters. Very bad trained, not as professionals as required in this price rated restaurant. t
