“Very poor except the price... Or...”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2012 via mobile

We went there today, two people, I can't say I would go there again and I can't recommend it to anyone. Low quality food, service was not good, the price ended at 48€, for low quality. I had salmon, very simple but very borring dish, my creme brulee was thin like water and the sugar on top was burned all black, not tasty at all. My girlfriend was a salad, it was just not her taste nor mine. Her dessert, vanilla ice in these small baked pastries was taken from a box I am sure, not homemade in any was and there where chocolatesauce with small grains in all over the playe, did not look tasty and it wasn't.
Find somewhere else to have your dinner, don't spend your money here.

“An excellent find and a great experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2012

We found this restaurant completely by accident but were really pleased we did. This place is brilliant. A true family run retaurant with excellent food, wine service and pricing.
The staff are friendly, welcoming and attentive but they don't speak English very well; but that adds to the experience. That said they really try to make you feel welcome and explain both food and wine well. The restaurant is well decorated and provides a comfortable eating environment.
The house specialities are Steak Tartare and a number of local fish dishes. I had a fish dish which was a traditional Catalan dish but was surprised to find it was chilled. However, it was absolutely brilliant and the fish is fresh.
It is well worth the search and well worth sitting down and enjoying the excellent fare on offer and food which is very reasonably priced for the standard.

“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.
