“Lovely full english breckie!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2012

I really can't understand the bad reviews of this place. I saw them before we visited, but my girlfriend and I were craving a full english, and it was literally across the road from the Baracelo Raval hotel where we were staying so we ignored the bad reviews, and decided to give it a go.

We're so glad we did, as it was a fantastic breakfast! An English lady (I presume the owner) served us, and we had proper bacon, sausage, egg, toast, beans, mushrooms, tomatoes, and coffee for about 7 euros each. And it was delicious - better than many breakfasts I've had in the UK. I can't believe the bad reviews - I'm very fussy, and trust me if it had been below par I'd have given it a harsh review (read my other reviews if you don't believe me). But this was soooo tasty, and the bacon and sausages were clearly imported from the UK.

So if you want the full monty - give this place a go. Just look for the cute "Fat Cat" statue on Ramblas Raval... You won't be dissapointed.

“Worst chips I've EVER had”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2012

Went there with my mum and 4 of her friends (all British) who had said good things about it and were all repeat customers. We all ordered the same, small fish and chips with mushy peas. The fish was fine and the mushy peas were good, but the chips were inedible! They were oily and hard, really disgusting, most of us left ours. We should have said something right away, but the waiter was across the road in the restaurant while we were on the terrace and no one checked if everything was ok. At the end of the meal, we told the waiter about the chips and the very honest young man said the chef had cooked too many the night before so he had just heated them up and served them to us! We were speechless! A 5 kg bag of potatoes is 1.19€ here! Absolutely appalling! I will never go back (even though they did give us a .60 cent discount each) and I doubt any of the ladies I was with today who were faithful customers will do so either as in Barcelona you are spoilt for choice. A real shame as I believe when this place opened it was a real success. Yuk!

“UK Fish and Chips in Barcelona?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2012

UK Fish and Chips. Not bad. It's only slightly exoctic since it's hard to find UK styled fish and chips in Barcelona. They also have meat pies. The place is kind of a dump though. They could make it nicer inside. Durring warm weather they have a terrace outside. Near the Cat by Botero

“Does what it says on the tin!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 November 2011

Fish and Chips serves genuine, fresh English food. Breakfasts are very nice and the fish and chips are also good. If you are craving fish and chips or a breakfast it certainly hits the spot.

I didn't find the restaurant dirty and my food was certainly not reheated. I have also visited several times and never found this to be the case, so I don't really know what the previous reviewer is talking about.

The terrace is very nice to sit and soak up the atmosphere of the Rambla del Raval.

Only slight criticism is that it is a little over priced, but then again you have to remember the goods are imported so this inevitably costs them more to buy.

“Very Grubby”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 September 2011

Have been a customer on and off since it opened. However, I had lunch today and was quite disappointed. The actual restaurant is dirty and looks almost run down, not much better than the dodgy kebab places next door.The food was also not at all up to scratch. The cod was undercooked and the pies were awful. In my opinion the place was great when the owners ran the place themselves or at least when they had more presence.I realise it can be hard to get decent staff but they should really make the effort or a great little restaurant will go further downhill.
