Located on the charming Placa de Sant Josep Oriol, named in honor of a priest born in Barcelona in 1650, El Pi Antic is an enjoyable respite for refreshments and tapas. We lounged at an outdoor table, offering a couple to join us and watch...More

Service started off OK but food was distinctly average at best. Worst part was trying to fathom out the bill. Little explanation and objectionable manner when challenged. Eventually the manager had a brainwave, the disputed items were the costs of eating outdoors - pay up!!

The food was tasteless, not fresh and very expensive. We ordered 7 different tapas dishes, but nothing tasted good. Later when we checked, we discovered that the restaurant had added 13 euro extra on the bill. Stay away from this place!!

Charming location and first look. It needs an update as much is worn out. Including some of the waiters who were brusque and not tourist friendly. Tapas were good but very high priced. Entrees not so good. Keep looking.
