When you notice the waiting lines.outside this restaurant you know that they do not need another review. Finally I decided to write something too, even tough I wanted to be selfish and keep it for myself. But too late, they already discovered this restaurant too.
Food very good quality, lots of choices, same for the wine. Not fancy but rather casual dining. Service fast, but with enough professionalism to notice that you ordered a Camembert stick and serve it as a dessert. Special thanks to Mr. Felix who was the chef <du salle> the 3 times we went there on our 3 days trip. Please do NOT change ad we really will come back.

The restaurant setting is rather casual, but the food was very good. They have a wide variety of tapas prepared out of fresh ingredients. They have indoor and outdoor seating. Service speed/quality was below average, but they made it up with the quality of the food. Prices are very affordable.

Decent selection of food with helpful waiters. Different languages catered for and reasonable prices.

Lacks any wow factor you might want or except given its high position on TA.

We ate at 16:00 so plenty of seating inside and out.

Funny, up-market pet shop next door if you're a dog lover, if not you might want to eat inside.

To sum up there are much better restaurants in BCN...

This restaurant was recommended to us by a friend. The food was excellent, the service was excellent. We arrived in early evening around 7.00 pm and got a table immediately. When we left at 8.30 pm after having wonderful tapas and wine there was a queue out the door so arrive early. The clientele of the restaurant were almost all spanish which goes to show that it has a good reputation with the locals.

La Flauta was highly recommended by a friendly traveler we met while waiting for a connecting flight in London. We were even more excited to try this restaurant after reading all of the positive reviews on Tripadvisor. We eat out all the time, are very easy to please and love a variety of cuisines...but our experience here was terrible. The place was fairly full when we arrived but we had no trouble getting a table. We chose to have a variety of tapas, pasta and Sangria. My brother-in-law is a seafood lover but honestly some of it looked like it was still moving. However, they had no trouble taking his dish back. My sister and I shared the pasta and it was terrible. The dish was very bland with no flavour, spice or taste. We tried one forkful each and asked if we could exchange it. That was when all the trouble began and the waiter refused to have it struck off our bill. His reasoning was that they could not resell the dish as we had eaten from it and that we should have known. Well, you do not know what a dish tastes like until you try it in most cases! (My brother-in law did not try his dish, he took one look at it and sent it back). My sister's glass of Sangria had a fly in it! We showed it to the waiter and he took it away along with our jug of Sangria to add a little more to it. At no time did they apologize for the disgusting fly in her drink! When we asked to speak to the manager to ask why the uneaten horrible pasta was not removed from our bill, we also told him about the fly and he acted like he did not believe us because we could not show it to him although his own employees had seen it and took it away! The manager and employees were very rude to us at this point and kept stating that their food was good and they did not want their reputation smeared. Well, we were not trying to smear their reputation we were simply trying to bring to their attention our horrible dish and fly in our drink. Obviously they have a serious problem with criticism and horrible customer service. Needless to say, we did not stay to have any more food and left still hungry. I would like to mention that the bravas was very delicious, but did not make up for this experience. We have never received this level of treatment from a restaurant before and it was very overwhelming. I would never go back and we all could not wait to get out of this place.
