We had been in Barcelona 5 nights when we found this little gem and were so glad that we did! After reading all the great reviews we decided to visit. When we arrived people were queuing to get it (good sign!) we only ended up waiting 20 mins but were told it could be up to an hour. Either way, completely worth the wait! We have eaten at a lot of places in Barcelona and was by far the best that we have been to. It is a very small, cosy restaurant with few tables. The food was delicious. We went for dishes recommended by the waitress and they did not disappoint. It was so good that we went back on our last night as we wanted to try more of there gorgeous dishes! Great service. Very friendly staff and very reasonably priced! It is a MUST when in Barcelona!!

A fantastic little place, a mix of locals and tourists but not very touristy, it had a very authentic feel. We arrived at eight and had to put our name down for a 30 minute wait but sooo worth it! Either get there earlier or book if you can. The best food of our visit to Barcelona. Great value too. Carolina was our waitress and so lovely, smiling and helpful. Totally recommend the hummus and the pears. Delightful place, would come back just for this!

We tried tapas here for the first time after reading the good reviews - it lived up to its expectations! We really enjoyed our food and cocktails - good service too.

Sara our waitress was very nice, helpful and really made our dinner so much better. The food was so outstanding it's ridiculous. My husband walked away saying we were sad to leave Barcelona because of this restaurant alone haha.

Down the narrow back streets - you could so easily miss this gem of a restaurant, look at it and think maybe try somewhere that looks more inviting.... but don’t! Popular with locals and tourists... the tapas were incredible. We sat outside in the courtyard, the tables inside seemed lovely too but a bit dark. The service was excellent and each dish was great! If you want to try a lovely tapas restaurant that’s casual, leaves you feeling satisfied and not too pricey then go!! :)
