Hidden gem! If you are on a budget then take advantage of their one course menu for under 9€.
You choose from 12 dishes and it comes with a drink and bread. They even give you some sauces for dipping. Absolute bargain. Their Menu Diario is excellent value too, you get 3 courses with a drink and bread and they always have some sort of steak on the menu, which is their speciality and really very nice. Their crepes with dulce de leche are to die for, really sweet and indulgent, recommended with a scoop of ice cream. Close to Pg de Gracia so central but not in the thick of it.

Only one waiter spoke english. They were all polite, professional and helpful, but not very proactive. No presentation on the dishes when served.

Meat was amazing and wine also top-notch. Missing some vegetables or something to the dish. If service was better and they had a tomato or something addef to the dish it would be a 5 star restaurant.

We came here because our host recommended the set menu. We had steak with grilled vegetables and homemade ravioli with ham and chicken. Both were great but I would recommend the meat which was delightful. We had two menus, mineral water and toasted bread with garlic and tomato amd paid 23? (for two). The athmosphere is very nice, locals also seem to go there.

We had an excellent meal at this restaurant. There were 5 of us but 2 were late arriving, but the staff were happy to provide us with beers and menus and left us unbothered until the rest of our party arrived. Our food was exceptional - my starter alone was worth a trip to Barcelona - and the meat and fish dishes excellent. Service was efficient and unobtrusive. A meal for 5 with pre meal beers and a couple of bottles of good wine came to under €200

Really enjoyed our meal here - it was probably the friendliest of all our choices in Barcelona. The manager made our child feel exceptionally welcome, making him laugh, bringing him pens etc...everyone in our party who had steak said it was delicious and really tender, the vegetarians in the group were also well catered for and my fig salad was really good...would definitely return if I was in the area. It was decent value as well.
