Went back again recently after a great meal earlier in the year. Pleased to say it's still a great little restaurant. Very nice home cooked tapas or mains at a good price. Would prefer Estrella or Moritz on draught over Amstel, but not a problem as the wine is very nice!

Just returned from a 5 day city break in Barcelona so ate out quite a bit. Quite expensive generally (Pound V Euro) and some restaurants are not really not great for the money. There are many hundreds of places to eat and drink in the Old City but this was a find. Everything was fresh and tasty. Beers and wines... More

The food is typical Spanish tapas based with a small menu for other dishes. The service is fast and proper. The house wine is good enough and you should try the meat chimmichurry. Good athmosphere. Reservation might be wise in the weekend.

Very friendly and efficient. Lovely typical tapas food. It was all very tasty. The cheese fondue was great, as were the croquetes. Gorgeous, large, garlic prawns.

We popped in on a whim looking for tapas and hit a gold mine. We only had four dishes, but each one was really, really good. If had more time we've have come back to try the rest.

Situated at the end of a short alleyway 15m off Carrer Ample in Barcelona's Barri Gotic, this small, attractive restaurant offers a friendly welcome and excellent dining from a varied (predominantly Spanish with a hint of Italian) menu with sensibly priced drinks. The service and meal quality were very high and all at a reasonable cost for the four of... More

We met the same bad apple as Gingerballs. It is a very cute place down a long dead end and we decided to have a look like we have done at a hundred places in Spain. My wife and i walked in and said "Hola" to the tall woman behind the bar. The place was completely empty. We walked out... More
