As the title suggests, not a great experience. The food was very average, the service poor considering we were the only people in the place, quite unfriendly. We had a selection of tapas, none of which I would choose again, we've had a lot better and paid less. Shame because it is a nice little street.

Reading (and writing) reviews I get a feeling there is some general problem with paella in Spain... Anyway:

We went to Ample 24 on a day of a heavy downpour, so after having been totally soaked and having changed we looked for a place that would be as close to our hotel as possible.
We chose a platter of tapas for 2, fried squid rings (tapa) and beef carpaccio (dish) and wine. Wine arrived almost instantly, there was a little waiting for the dishes but it wasn't too long.
Tapa platter was just ok, nothing special - some tiny sandwiches, peppers, olives, a few potatoes but ok for a starter. The squid rings were good, fresh, tender and well drained of any excess oil. The carpaccio was excellent. Funny thing was that the rings offered as tapa were in fact a bigger portion than the carpaccio.
The service was also ok. All in all it's a place where you can go and eat a decent meal for a reasonable price (for Barcelona). It's nothing fancy or upscale though.

We stumbled across this one on a lazy Sunday afternoon. The decor looked nice and modern and seemed to be frequented by locals. The Cod croquettes were amazing. The rest was OK, nothing special, and nothing you couldn't get in London. Seemed like there was only one waitress and it took about 15-20 minutes for the bill to be prepared. I'm sure there are loads of better places in the area.

We ate tapas and a main course there. Patatas bravas were good, but the rest of the tapas were average. We also ate a paella...if you're interested by canned shrimp and chicken, take that one but otherwise, you're better with anything else...We only had two ''real'' shrimp on our plate and no veggies at all. Also, too salty for our taste.
