We were attracted by the good smell when we passed by the corner. Then we discovered this little cosy restaurant/pub packed with people. It shouldn't be wrong to try it out and it turned out to be exceptionally good. Food was good and the people there were nice.

I enjoyed the lunch here, even though I have chosen lots of fried dishes which made my lunch quire heavy. The croquettes where spot on! Certainly better than the average eatery in the centre / Rambla area.

We visited here last year and couldn't wait to rerun. It's a traditional restaurant that has a great three course menu with a drink for €13.50. There's several choices of starter, main and dessert and I had cucumber tabouleh, grilled chicken with celeriac mash followed by fresh fruit and a beer. It was beautiful. The restaurant isn't open at night... More

The menu was written by hand and in Spanish, I didn't understand anything and just asked to bring me something tasty. They brought for me very fast : amazing white fish, grilled vegetables garlic bread and cold beer. Clean place, really tasty food, very friendly stuff... More
