The only way this restaurant gains one star is the view you can get from the balcony outside. We decided at 8pm on the set menu, 3 courses for 22.95Euros as we wanted to go to the light fountain show. The food was cold, tasteless and totally unappetising- would put our main of chicken and fries as the worst meal we have ever tasted, fries just warm, soggy and burnt. We were offered water when ordering, had to ask 3 times before we got it one hour later. Still waiting for mains after 1 1/4 hours - offered apology but when we said we wanted to leave after eating it to attend the light show and would have to skip dessert - no reduction in price. Worst food, worst service, no view of fountain show and loud band below that does not allow you to hear the music that is coordinated with the amazing fountain display. Avoid! But do go to the amazing fountain light display - it is unlike anything we have experienced anywhere in the world.

Started with friendly efficient service and then went downhill. We ordered our food and our drinks. One of the starters we wanted was unavailable - so we selected another. Drinks arrived. One starter arrived. We waited.Finally we were told the other starter had not been cooked but could be served after our main courses! We just cancelled the starter and shared one starter. The tomato bread was dry - not enough tomato and the garlic sauce was very greasy. My partners main was not what he order it was beef rather than pork. My main was cold - Cod and Roasted Vegetables - the quarter baked potato served with it was hard. We opted not to have dessert. Eventually after repeated asking we paid the bill and left. Would not go back.

Food was good, service was very very slow, seemed to be run by an inadequate manager, waiting staff did try their best. I would not come back here.

We loved the place and the meal was a great value for the price. We also got very good recommendations from the staff about the food and about Barcelona.

The location of this restaurant is spectacular. The view from on the gallery is worth A visit on its own merits. We had a family dinner here with selections such as lamb, steak and chicken and everyone seemed happy. I had the steak which was ok if unspectacular. The wine selection is decent and reasonably priced.

The staff were helpful and attentive and all in all we had a very pleasant evening. Seven of us with starters, mains two bottles of wine and coffees cost around 200 euros so not expensive.

A nice easy place to have dinner. Worth a visit if your in the neighbourhood.
