Visited tonight with my wife on our last night in Barcelona. Staff was slightly pushy as we were walking by but we decided to give it a go.
Drink service was fast and efficient however our waitress never came back to our table to take the food order, we ended up signaling to another waiter to take our order.
Food was ok at best, wasn't terrible but wasn't great, chips were undercooked.
The one thing we will take away from this night is the drunk manager/owner, he was clearly intoxicated and there were a few comical moments, one in particular where he fell off a customer's skateboard and nearly knocked our table over!
We waited over 20 minutes for our bill, which was very expensive.
Would not recommend this place.

After dropping our luggage of at our hotel we wanted a quick snack before we started to explore and unfortunately stopped here.We ordered 2 bikinis ( ham and cheese toasties) and a portion of patatas bravas. We had our drinks fairly promptly but we waited and waited for our food. During this time, a gentleman who I presumed to be the boss, seemed to enjoy being horrible to the waiter. A gust of wind blew the restaurant menu board down so the boss went over to it and then shouted at the waiter to pick it up; seedlings from some tree kept falling on the outer tables and the waiter was brushing them off but as he did so more would fall and would get berated again. We asked several times for our food and after 40 minutes it arrived. The sandwiches had little filling and no garnish, the patatas bravas were quite large and under-cooked. As we had been there a while we had ordered another round of drinks. When we had finished the waiter took our plates away and we asked for the bill.Fifteen minutes elapsed so we asked again ( it was quiet there) and again half an hour later and then we finally got it and escaped!

One of the aims of out trip was to have some proper seafood. We stopped by here as a random choice on a road lined with similar restaurants and really enjoyed it. We ordered the mixed grilled seafood for 2, which had a good variety, including mussels, salmon and what we believe was a cuttlefish (although we were told it was a squid). The waiters were fantastic and re-heated some of the food as it took us some time to eat. My only complaint was paying nearly 5 euros each for half a pint of coke! We didn't check the menu beforehand, which we should have, but still feel that was a bit steep.

Also, the waiter recognised us as we walked past a couple of days later, which was nice. The restaurant is on a busy road and we were sitting outside, but sheltered by some greenery, it was nice to be in the bustle of the port.

Me and my four friends went to eat to that place, the food wasn't the best. After getting our check to pay we saw that they added up bread what we actually did not order, they just brought it to the table and we though it is for free (nothing was said). Moreover, there was not said that tax is not included in the price, so we had to pay additional 7€! The customer service was disappointing when my friend expressed her opinion about the salmon that she ate. So I wouldn't recommend to go there!
