“Very disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2010

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.

My favourite restaurant in Barcelona! Nice and romantic atmosphere, excellent food and very good service! Not cheap at all but amazingly worthy!
