“The best of Argentina”
Reviewed 29 July 2014 via mobile

The service was great. Of course if you speak a little spanish it makes it even better because our server was extremely passionate about the food. If you don't speak spanish, no worries. They have a menu in English and can accommodate you. The food was unbelievable! We were in Barcelona for 3 nights and ate here every night. You'd really be missing out on the best if you didn't have dinner here.

“Just ok”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

Delivers what's on the menu, nothing more nothing less. Could work as an every-day "I don't feel like cooking today" place, but is over priced for that purpose. There are better options I the area.

“World cup fail.”
Reviewed 8 July 2014 via mobile

Went for argentina match it was good atmosphere especially because they won. The staff i swear were not on the ball at all. So slow!!!!! Beer tap was out so had heineken bottles which were not very cold. So that was a let down. We got a sirloin steak each which was yum me and a friend asked for a roast potato each he got one and i did not which was annoying and then i said to them and the girl acted clueless very crap. The foods yum but our bill was 220 euros which was not worth that at all for 4 people. Barca is pricey but that is just an insult i think!!!

“Attentive service”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

Did not expect to have a fine cozy dinner during the Mundial in Barcelona. Anyway, very attentive service and fine food (argentinian meat, salads) made the evening very fine experience.
