“Excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 December 2011

Tucked away behind the nick and slightly off the beaten track. Outside it looks dusty and the shutters are often down during the day which can also be slightly offputting. DON'T BE FOOLED. This place is brilliant. A true family run retaurant with excellent food, wine service and pricing. The staff are welcoming and attentive but they don't speak English. So, if you are a rubbish Brit abroard like me communication is fun. That said they really make you feel welcome and explain both food and wine well. The house specialities are Steak Tartare and a number of local fish dishes. The steak is absolutely brilliant as a starter and the fish is fresh and well served. Deserts are also local and very good.
Being slightly off the tourist track you fear that this place could suffer which would be a massive loss. When we were there there were only a few other diners. It is well worth the search and well worth sitting down and enjoying the excellent farfe on offer which is very reasonably priced for the standard.

“Great ambience, food and service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2011

We managed to find this place through lonely planet's recommendations on catalan cuisine. It's a little restaurant with great indoors decorations and set up to make it so cosy for a meal. The lady was very very nice although she didn't know much english, she tried her best to explain the menu to us and really made us feel at home after a long day travelling to and fro the city to see the attractions. We had Brandada de bacallà (cod fish) and entrecot de vedella salsa roquefort (veal). The cod fish is just amazing, a real must try in my opinion. We spent about 50 euroes for three.
