“Simple and good”
Reviewed 2 December 2013

Had dinner with the wife in late November. We had reservations, and this is a must as the place only has six tables. While we where there they turned people away at the door, so place seems popular, even though the location is a bit off the beaten track.

The food was good and service relaxed and fun. We opted for the three course menu, but should have gone for the tasting menu. Our main was beef fillet, and it was very good, but quite ordinary. The starter and 'middle' courses where great though.

Prices quite low for this sort of place. Would visit again, and then go for the tasting menu.

“Amazing restaurant!”
Reviewed 1 December 2013

We were so happy to find this restaurant. The chef is a lovely, warm, and welcoming person and the food is really amazing. The products used are excellent and the dishes are all unusual and beautifully presented.
This is excellent value for money!

“AMAZING!!!!!”
Reviewed 20 November 2013 via mobile

Wow is all I can say! This hidden gem is wonderful. They only have 6 tables and we now know why.... Because they pay so much attention to the food and the customers. My better half had the oysters to start and he said they were the best oysters he had ever had and for him to say that is BIG. Everything from the bread to the oysters to the goat, NOTHING could have been better. This restaurant is a MUST if you want some of the prettiest and best tasting food in Barcelona!

“Fabulous restaurant”
Reviewed 18 October 2013 via mobile

This restaurant was a lovely surprise find. We ate here last night and ordered the taster menu for 45 euros each. It's only a small place, about 7 tables, and was empty when we arrived, but the waiter was most helpful in explaining all of the dishes & recommending wines.
The food was fabulous, we had about 7 or 8 small dishes which were absolutely delicious. The waiter was very attentive offering bread throughout the meal, which was freshly cooked & very good.. If you are in the area do not pass this restaurant by. Highly recommend it.

“One of the best in town!!”
Reviewed 13 July 2013

A great restaurant with one of the best (and friendliest) cooks in town, from the kitchens of Can Roca. Exquisite dishes with amazingly designed flavours together with great wines from small wineyards of Catalonia. Ask for the "croquetas" if they are not in the menu, and if you are lucky to get offered a rice with red shrimps do not miss it!! It is the best I have had so far!!

It is a shame it is not better known... The cook deserves to be praised!
