“Excellent seafood restaurant ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014 via mobile

You pick your own fish and seafood, they then grill it for you or batter and fry it (no, deep frying is not always bad). Fresh, tastes of sea, well prepared. Side orders of tomato bread, grilled veg and olives were yummy. Nice cava. Fast service.

We had the lobster paella for two! It was great! Beautiful restaurant and great location in the center of a town square! The seafood was fresh and our dish was cooked to order!

“Avoid. Rude service and basic food for the price.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

Food was standard, at best. The service was awful. The waiter didn't write down our order, so my partner received her side dish for her main as a starter dish. This wasn't a problem, however the remainder of the evening was ruined by the constant lack of care and thought of the staff.

Before we could even finish our starters, our main dishes were already on our laps... and out came the side dish of chips we had previously been given... arriving cold, so it had probably just been left out until they decided to throw our mains into the works. The main dish was limited and honestly was nothing special considering the price.

Upon receiving the bill, they'd included a seperate 10% IVA charge on the receipt. I queried this as every restaurant and bar we'd visited previously had not mentioned this, and the waiter's response was "Oh sorry! It's tax", smiled and then walked away swiftly. Having researched this after, I was unimpressed to find this was not common across the majority of restaurants in Barcelona, but just a cheeky way of making money out of tourists.

We paid the full amount and left no tip because we were unimpressed by the entire evening. However, upon the abrupt waiter collecting our payment, as I walked past the bar area to access the toilets, the waiter slammed the money onto the bar and looked at me disgustedly because I had left no tip. I was genuinely shocked.

All in all, a complete waste of money. Definitely avoid.

My only regret is that I did not try seafood paella in this place as all that I ate was absolutely fantastic!
