My husband & I stayed in Barcelona for 2 weeks in August-September last year & ate in this establishment several times. We stumbled across this restaurant accidentally & are so glad we did. The food was AMAZING!! The service was wonderful & the restaurant itself has a great ambiance.
Menu is unassuming, I had the steak a couple of times, beautiful. Cant recommend it enough - GO!!!

I was invited by a friend, and we both enjoyed the meal immensely. The food was delightful, and its presentation beautiful. The staff were attentive and the decor and atmosphere were calm and inviting. The place was sophisticated without being pretentious - I liked the pile of CD beside the music system behind the bar - and the coffee machine there too. The price was very reasonable.

We had a hard time finding this place, following a reccommendation by our lonely planet guide.

This is a very small restaurant, a bit too dark for my taste. I didn't like the plastic flowers on the tables one bit, I can tell you that for sure...

Food choices were somehow limited.

Service was excellent, but the taste of the very well presented dish, did not match our expectations.

I would suggest another restaurant in the area, or even better in the Aribau Street area.

I went there with a group of 8 on a Thursday, the restaurant was empty except for a table for 2. We sat at 9.30 and got our meal at 11.30 (we all ordered only one course, skipping appetizers). Service was appalling to say the least: 2 of us ordered seabass and we were warned it would take 20 minutes to cook. Well, exactly one hour after ordering the waiter came to the table to show the fish they were about t cook. The waiting staff was inattentive, we had to call for serviceagain and again. The food wasn't certainly out of this world, it was ok and certainly too expensive for what it was. A very upsetting experience, don't go is my recommendation.
