“Good value in central location”
Reviewed 10 July 2013 via mobile

Good food and service including changing menu to suit fussy kids...

Dinner worked out t about 100 euros for 4 of us.

Would recommend if you like meat, ask for recommendations, white wine a bit limited, but still nice enough.

“Excellent Lunch en route to/from Sagrada, great service/price.”
Reviewed 3 April 2013

En Route to the Sagrada Familia, trying to avoid tourist locations, found El Rincon Criollo, and very thankful we stopped. Sat outside in the warm sun, prompt service, waiter endured our spanish and he translated the rest for us. Had the lunch special, several choices for a first (had the spinach/ham/cheese tortilla (rolled layers then cut into slices like bracciole), then several choices for a second (I had the sepia/squid which was outstanding cut pieces in a sauce with peas), others the fish (white baked and excellent taste/flavor), or the beef. Others had the empanada (chicken, not greasy at all). A drink (beer or pop or H2O) and dessert (berries or ice cream) included. The best lunch we had all week, and the fairest price (24Euros). Service was timely and attentive. Food in Barcelona just keeps getting better! a Must return.

“Good food, good service”
Reviewed 29 March 2013

We really liked this restaurant, although it is on a busy road so may be worth sitting inside. The menu of the day came to a very reasonable €9.90 for three courses, bread and a drink. I had the Tagliate al Wok and my girlfriend had the Alachotas Rebosadas (fried artichokes) which were both delicious.
For the main I had the Albondigas Glasedas y Cuscus which was traditional Spanish meatballs with a Moroccan twist and my girlfriend had the Milanesa Napolitana which is breaded steak with tomato, ham and cheese.
Desert was Crema Catalana and Flan which were the perfect way to round off the meal.
The service was friendly and polite.
All in all we would highly recommend visiting if you're walking down Passeig Sant Joan.

“Excellent Value”
Reviewed 17 June 2012

Decent prices, good service and superb food. They have great Tapas and the steaks are first rate even the side salds and Patatas Bravas were well presented and tasted lovely. 3 Euros for a large beer, great value all round, wish we had found it earlier in the trip.
