After 6 years being a customer here I will now always go next door where the food and service is MUCH BETTER. I went to join a friend on the terrace, and I had my electric scooter with me as I'm currently on crutches. After rudely shouting at me to get off the terrace with it they proceeded to shout at me again when I accidental knocked into a chair. It would be understandable for them to politely ask me to leave it outside or lock it up. Rude staff, stay away!

Hi! I was really surprised to hear what happened. I asked all my staff who are actually quite educated with service and apparantly this never happened. If you wish you can contact me or come in and clear it up that would be great. As to the comment of next door having better food, well we all know that is not true. Anyway if there is some kind of misunderstanding or mistake of actual place i would like to know. My tel number is 646553930. Thank you and have a lovely day!

“Nice place to relax and have a good time”
Reviewed 5 June 2013

If you are visiting the city or live there this is the place to go if you are looking for good food and drinks in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere! Great spot to meet friends for an after work drink(S) or just to swing by in the morning to have a coffee and juice to minimize the effects of the hangover. Either way you should not miss it! Cheers!

“Home sweet home: )”
Reviewed 18 January 2012

Great location - near the harbour. Friendly staff and great drinks. Good place to spend some chilling time. In summer time you can spend there all day long watching the living city of BCN. Near by - bike rental, beach and other useful facilities. Feel's like home for me every time Im in Barcelona.
