Tasty but not very big portions, maybe better to try the "menu", it was very cute that while eating we could watch a charlie chaplin movie. Also, in the crowded and noisy Barca, it was an oasis just downtown!!!

Very nice decor, modern and cool, with an old screen on which they were projecting some Charlie Chaplin movie. Very good service too. Food a bit average, but still good for the price in the middle of the magnificent Barri Gottic.

I went here having found it recommended in one of the many Barcelona guides, I went with my girlfriend and we were both disappointed, Terrible food combinations with overpowering flavours the didnt fit together, a risotto that was more like boiled rice than any risotto. The waiter was uninformed and uninterested, and took a long time to serve us, while incorrectly bringing us the wrong drinks twice. Will never go back!

This place ticked all the boxes. Tasty, fresh, good value and great atmosphere! We partook in the 12 euro, 3 course meal (including drink) which isn't available on Friday and Saturday. You can also get very nice cocktails for reasonable prices. The restaurant is less than a block from one if the very tourist heavy areas so we were surprised at the quality for such a good price. Staff were very friendly and spoke very good English.

For starters we ordered the house salad (Magnolia salad) and the tomato tartine with goats cheese. The salad was generously portioned, fresh, full of colour and flavour. The tartine was rich and very well done.

For our main we both ordered the chicken breast with Gorgonzola sauce and home style potato wedges. There were much more interesting dishes on offer but we both couldn't resist the lure of the chicken.

Deserts were chocolate mousse and fresh fruit plate. Nothing fancy but the fruit was fresh and of high quality and presented well. The mouse was delicious!

In all we thoroughly enjoyed our experience at this venue! Best meal we have had in a while!

(P.s. not sure why this is classed as Asian on trip advisor - its more modern Spanish)
