Just had dinner at La Mesa, Castelldefels. Starter: hummus and babaganush, excellent, a little too salty and too little pitta bread but very good overall. Followed by a very tasty steak for my lover and fallafel ( too salty again) for me, with a bottle of their cava (11€!). The cheesecake was deceiving for us who are used to US style cheesecakes. Our main problem was the location, we had to sit outside because they have no AC. It's right on a busy street ( noise) and after a while a sewer smell spoilt the dinner. Conclusion: La Mesa, please move to a different location!!

You need to go exploring to find this, and the location is nothing to talk about - the view is of a petrol station and a road. But nevermind that - go for the FOOD!
Friendly staff, and reasonable prices.
Food was best we had all week, and we're sorry we didn't go more than once.
Everything was freshly made (we could see the chef at work inside), and everything tasted wonderful. Veal kebabs, salads, ground veal in puff pastry - not to forget the WONDERFUL homemade cakes for dessert. The carrot cake is a MUST!
Just GO!

We look up the tips on Tripadvisor, and La Mesa came up. We tok our bikes across the bridge, and was set off by the pretty bad location next to a Roald with lost of traffic and a gasstation. But once inside, none of this mattered. Lovely service, best chicken ever, basicly just brilliant food. Worth the trip!

We wandered to this place after seeing a few reviews in English on trip advisor. The restaurants closer to the beach seem more dated and low quality. VERY glad we did! Cute, modern and very fresh high quality food! The sirloin was stunning, soft and rare how I like it (waitress didn't speak much English but they had an English menu... Fluke they served it right without asking). My boyfriend had the tuna steak and I never in a million thought it would be better than my sirloin but it was to die for. Really recommend!! The food is prepared right there at the bar area on coals. Clever chef! The garlic and rosemary potatoes are great too. Free salad top-up counter. Our deserts were Homemade (brownie and cheesecake). I had a red wine and lemonade mix and it was light and refreshing. We are going back tomorrow night it was that good... And cheap for the quality! Our full bill was €48.
