    Such a great experience. the food was great, i love the tomato tartar however the presentation for the coffee and milk desert was quite disappointing. the staff was so friendly, especially my waiter, Edvardo (Ali) who took the time to write a note for me and gave me complimentary chocolate and champagne. i definitly reco

    The venue is really great and the atmosphere too. I was personally disappointed from some of the dishes, fish in particular that was fresh but not so tasty. Generally speaking it is ok but missed the wow effect it was supposed to create.

    What a fabulous experience! From our delicious Old Fashioned prepared by Carlo, to the warm reception and constant attention of Eduardo, David, Paloma, and Jade, we enjoyed a wonderful first night in Barcelona. The staff went out of their way to make our experience exceptional! Eduardo and David walked us thru the wine list and menu (it was our first experience in a tapas restaurant), and we were not disappointed. The meal was absolutely delicious- we had a fantastic selection of tapas, which were thoughtfully prepared and beautifully presented. Eduardo made suggestions on local vineyards to visit during our stay- he even took the time to write them down for us! We were blown away by the warmth and friendly atmosphere, not to mention incredible value, which is Arola. Thank you to all!

    We had the tapas menu in which all selections were made by the chef. As a group of 5 this made the whole experience very relaxing and enjoyable. All of the tapas were delicious and creatively presented. The service was outstanding! I will return.

    Good lunch overall. Food was well prepared, service felt a bit rushed for the Sunday afternoon. Received a notice 1 day prior to this planned birthday lunch that there would be a set menu. This was fine for us but as a whole experience this was different from what I remembered from this place visiting it in 2015 for a business lunch. In specifically came back with my family for my son’s 16th birthday and mentioned this in my reservation. No particular attention was paid to the birthday element although the lunch was well looked after and delicious although quite copious portions, must admit for a lunch. In the restaurant only 3 tables were occupied which left the whole place feeling quite deserted.
