My sister and I ate here last month when we were after some good paella, and it delivered. Great location if you have a time constraint. A great alternative to tracking down good paella in Barceloneta. The cozy atmosphere was a nice respite from the hustle and bustle of Barcelona. We had a long late lunch, the wine our server recommended was great. The portion sizes were just right. After our meal the manager showed us around the restaurant and told us its interesting history. It was a perfect last meal after our 4 weeks spent in Spain, I wouldn't change a thing.

An impromptu decision to try this restaurant was well rewarded. The understated charm and a waiter that took time to talk about history of the restaurant, but was not in the least obtrusive. The food was authentic, tasty and great sizes.

This is a well established place, it has placed Michelin Mentions and various award stickers on its window.
The service was great nothing to complain about...
The decor is reminiscent of perhaps a more Eastern Block European.
We were interested in the menu it looked promising.
Duck with Chestnut casserole and wild asparagus. My fiancée has char and caramelized onions.
The dusk was as dry as over cooked roast beef and the casserole was a tartlette of puff pastry with three chestnuts and the entire thing was drenched in oil and creamy sauce all of which did not go with duck. The asparagus was huge chewy and drenched in oil.
The char was nice but drenched in oil and the onions waaaay over syrupped and caramelized .., which actually went better with my dry duck. Ironically the duck was pink but still impossible to eat....
We drank the wine which was great and left half our meal uneaten. It was over priced and nothing special. There are many great places if u go off the track this was not one. I have to give it one star but it was a minus one

We walked into this restaurant a bit on the early side since we had just travelled from the US and still had jet lag. It was quite empty and we thought we were perhaps taking a chance (read further why it was empty!). The waiter greeted us at the door and asked us to select the table that suited us best. We shared our ideas with them and asked for their recommendations on food choices and wine pairings. What happened next was a great representation of why I love to travel. My daughter's vegetable paella was out of this world... we had one of my favorite Spanish wines ever...my fish dish was perfectly prepared and just perfect.... the entire experience of graciousness and kindness were so authentic and delightful... they are very sensitive to gluten and lactose intolerance and knew exactly what to do.... THEY HAVE THE BEST GLUTEN FREE BREAD I'VE HAD IN 20 YEARS... the owner came out and talked with us about the history of the restaurant and what our interests were, interested in us as people not just as customers. Great people, great restaurant. P.S. We found out that Portugal was playing in a World Cup match (Spain had already been disqualified) and everyone was at a place with a TV!
