This is a typical tourist trap. Poor service to non-locals. Not even a full menu was served (invoice was for a full menu though). It is outrageous that this sort of place still exist in Barcelona.

We were there on a lunchtime and you did not have to reserve but as it is really worth visiting, if you are going in the evening, it may be worth getting in touch with them.
